Fuel Calc Question

Recommended Posts

Guest tyrant

Hi All,On the "fuel load planning" sheet of the manual its says "for every 10000 deviation above or below 475000lbs, add / subtract fuel burnout correction.My question is, I was doing a ferry the other day, where my planned landing weight was in the region of 442000lbs. Over a planned 6.3hr at F370, does this mean i must subtract approx 20760lbs from my flight plan fuel. This is how i understand it, however when i entered these figures into the FMC, i got insufficient fuel warnings all the time, i had to eventually lower my reserves value to get rid of the warnings. were my calculations wrong? am i not understanding the burnout correction correctly?Jason
