Deon Schlebusch I had to stop and switch off engins as there was a McDonnel taxing of the other runway towards me and I had to stop at the off ramp from the runway otherwise that plane would have hit me thats why my taxi time is so short. Did take a screen shot if you would like me to forward it.
Ian Harrison Those taxi drivers get everywhere.
Ian Harrison A bit heavy with the fuel load.
Deon Schlebusch Hi Ian, hope the flue is better. With regards the fuel, I am using fuelplanner.com and don't know why they are over fueling. You suggested the last time that I should look at simbrief, I did had a look but from what I can see is that the entry level I am using one cant get fuel planning I have to upgrade with them. Am I correct in saying this?
Ian Harrison Hi Deon, I did a bit of research for you (account to follow!). Flightplan.com is very heavy. I used a 747 from JHB to Sydney. F/P.com showed 189000kg. Topcat (payware) 168150kg. And simbrief 136000 without Etops allowance. Or about 155000 with). And no, you are wrong. Simbrief is free, you must just call up the printout to get the fuel load. Use simbrief but read the instructions first!
Deon Schlebusch Thank you Ian for the help, I will go to Simbrief again and carefully read the instructions.
