Fuel Planner Utility, Beta 4 Released

Recommended Posts

Beta 4 is available now, which fixes a bug which caused an error similar to "Incorrect FS version" when trying to load fuel or read payload data via FSUIPC.Grab it here:http://www.metacraft.com/737NGFP/I'm currently working on having the center fuel tank always have the minimum required fuel.

Thanks Ross. I use your fuel planner pretty much on every flight now.

Hi Ross,Thanks for you work, I really appreciate it!However, if I may be so bold as to make one observation: I noticed that you can't enter a negative headwind. Would it be at all possible for you to think about adding that option (trying to be as polite as possible here and not sounding demanding :-) )Once again, thank you!Leo Bakker

Hello Leo, please feel free to make suggestions at any time. :)I decided against supporting negative values for the headwind, since I feel there is something fundamentally unsafe about decreasing the amount of fuel you take along, based on something as unreliable as a weather forecast.In other words, it seems much more prudent to plan for the worst-case scenario (a headwind) and take more fuel than you may need, than it is to hope for a best-case scenario (a tailwind) and take less fuel, possibly forcing yourself to make an unscheduled fuel stop if the winds change.That being said, since I only fly little cessnas in the real world, and since I've only been flying airliners in MSFS for a few months now, perhaps I just don't understand how consistent the winds aloft are at the typical cruise levels for a 737. Are the winds up there consistently blowing in the same direction? I'd love to hear from some more experienced airliner pilots.

Version 1.2 is out now, which is no longer a beta, so the beta popup message is gone. This version loads the first 1,000 pounds of fuel into the center tank to meet Boeing requirements.http://www.metacraft.com/737NGFP/
