Dieter Magnet Too much fuel reserve
Gabriel Michael Hi Dieter, Yes i also noted that. Loaded fuels as per calculation. also loaded real time weather but did not notice too much tail wind. Flew at recommended speeds and altitude but the flight seemed too quick and too fuel effiecient. I used 2 different fuel planners one was about 20000lb more so i used the average. any advice would be appreciated. thanks
Dieter Magnet Hi Gabriel, the A330-200 is very lean in cruise trim. I would suggest monitoring your ave. fuel consumption for the aircraft per hour and base your fuel estimate on that - factoring in step climbs.
Gabriel Michael Hi Dieter Thanks will try that. I would really like to do some online flying - let me know if you have the time for a chat on this topic. best wishes for 2017 and thanks for the work you guys put in on SAA Virtual. regards Gabriel
