CRJ200 fuel burn

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know the climb-cruise-decent in lbs per hour for this aircraft? I tryed fsnav forum and noone can help me. Is there a calculater that could do this fror me? I have fsbuild. I have to install these aircraft (EMB120 as well) into fsbuild as they are not in program and I need fuel burn. Can/is there someone that can help me?:)

tim:>Which pdf file do I go into?look for this -Aircraft Performance Summary Tables for the Base of Aircraft Data (BADA) >What do you mean by the "second Hit?"using the PDF search function, first 'hit' will be CRJ1 in the index; second will be the CRJ1 performance table.--

Ok.Got it. Is mass levels = gross weight?Tim Also, how do I get up the emb120.I can't get it?

This a.m. I wanted to print out the 2 charts for e120 & crj1 & all that comes up is the aircraft (highlighted) in a long list of other aircraft.What am I doing wrong? If I can get the crj1 fuel chart up again I just hv a few more questions if you don't mind. I really appreciate the help your giving me. I've been trying for months to find out where to get this data and I am very happy.Thanks in advance:)

What does bada stand for. Can you give me a formula to convert KG/Min to LBS/HR? I think theres 2.2 lbs in a KG? So, if I'm climbing at 200 fpm to altitude FL240 that wld be 12 minutes of climb? so 12 X 2.2 = 264 LBS x 5 = 1260 LBS Per hr? Am I on track?

tim/willow:>What does bada stand for. BASE OF AIRCRAFT DATA (BADA)>Am I on track?for fuel flow per hour from the eurocontrol charts -value x 2.2 (kg to lbs) x 60 (to convert FF/min to FF/hr) example: the chart says that an CRJ climbing is buring 33.6 kg/min when passing 18000'.33.6 x 2.2 = 73.92 (round to 74).74 x 60 = 4440 lb/h <-- this is what the FF gauge will show at FL180you need to decide what the average FF rate you will use to represent for the climb. the same 'average' will need to be computted for FF rate when the aircraft is in cruise.--

I understand D.S. Thanks.If you do mind me asking.........what country are you in. You been simming for a long time.Suppose there's nothing you can't answer. >When you increase altitude, Does KTAS increase?

DIt gets pretty deep. I'll worry about KIAS Only for flight sim. I want the fuel figures for aircraft E120 & CRJ1. I could pro-rate fuel burn From BADA.Would I have to pro-rate up to max alt of 41000 ft for the crj? And Wld programs recognize the proper fuel burn if I flew at lower altitudes? I want these figures for FSNAVIGATOR & FSBUILD. Are you aware of these programs? I don't know if you can get into the fsbuild forum. If you can or even would have a look at my msge to Ernie (earlier on) that's the info I need. I sent him another msge yesterday but no reply(suppose he's frustrated with me. What I trying to do is install the CRJ1 & E120 into FSBUILD And looking for help. I bought fsbuild because I also bought radar contact. By the way D.......I live 200 miles south of Calgary ,Alberta And 100 miles north of Montana. I love Vancouver country and I always wanted to go see Seattle On my motorcycle but the years went by to fast being I'm 60 now and retired. I hope I did not offend you by telling you all this. Tim

>I live 200 miles south of Calgary ,Alberta i've flown in to calgary twice in real world ... not to visit, just a transit stop as part of a longer flight (canada 3000 A330 from vancouver to galsgow in 2000). loved the long taxi because the terminal is at the north end of 34/16>...FSNAVIGATOR & FSBUILD. Are you aware of these programs?both of these utilities have a long history with FS and i'm aware of them. neither provide me a 'service' i've ever had interest. as a result i've never purchased/used either.>Would I have to pro-rate up to max alt of 41000 ft for the crj? i do things simply (as FS is a game/simulation) and no one will die because of my bad planning.my system -*fly the aircraft at 1/2 fuel load and record it's fuel flow at cruise altitudes.*using these numbers make an average fuel burn and add 10%*when making a flightplan (i fly USA mainly so use flightaware.com to collect routings) i use the expected flight time and add another hour. my practice is to round up to the next 'whole' hour.*hours X average fuel burn/hr = fuel load.*if i'm going to fly into situations with a strong headwind and/or an airport with long taxi times (ex, KDEN) i'll add a bit more fuel.for the feelthere CRJ-200 my fuel burn number is 3500 lb/h. as most CRJ flight are 1 hour in length my usual fuel load is 7000 lbs.i find the above system work fine 95% of the time.--edit: typo--

D.S. Thank you for your very interesting reply. Much appreciated.I looked up FLIGHTAWARE and it sure looks interesting. I belong to DELTA VIRTUAL AIRLINES. To tell you the truth D I am really not interested in these addons. To learn these programs is very time consuming and wasting my time for getting into flying. If you don't mind I have a few questions. >Do you belong to a virtual airline(curious)>When you get your routes do you fly manually?A/P? >Do you have a favorite aircraft you fly. Seems you know alot about feelthere CRJ. Do you fly It?>Do you believe in FMC'S?>Do you mind helping me out when I need it?(mentor)I really need somebody. I've been flying since Jan 2004.>Do you have any addons?Anything you would do for me would be most appreciated.Tim:)

>>Do you belong to a virtual airline(curious)i did many years ago (6+ish years ago). work and personal life made me unable to fly as i felt proper for the VA. my work and life situation changed 18 months ago. i've not re-joined the VA as i've found other activites to fill my time.>>When you get your routes do you fly manually?A/P?AP mostly. i do some hand flying in a few GA aircraft.>>Do you have a favorite aircraft you fly. Seems you know alot>>about feelthere CRJ. Do you fly It?i fly feelthere created aircraft for the majority of my flying. in jan. '07 i was asked to join the feelthere group to provide support on their forums.>>Do you believe in FMC'S?yes ... but i believe many many FSers don't know how to hand-fly aircraft. as i started FSing before FS-FMCs were developed i am able to handle an aircraft without FMC/AP assistance for controlling the aircraft. i also know how to navigate using VORs and NDBs. i've also taken the time to learn how to use the CIVA-INS.>>Do you mind helping me out when I need it?(mentor)I really>need somebody. I've been flying since Jan 2004.sure thing>>Do you have any addons?the only payware i own are aircraft (most of those are from feelthere ... and others reading this - i PURCHASED all but three of those). i also have eaglesoft, aerosoft/eurowings, PMDG, PSS and lago aircraft in my FS9 'hanger.' i have some favorite freeware planes: tinmouseII 737-200 and Stellan's DC9. i use freeware AI, AFCADS and clouds. no payware of freeware landclass or other such FS 'eye candy' updates.>Anything you would do for me would be most appreciated.Tim:)i'll assist as i can. there are many many other forum members that can also provide valuable information.--

Willow,You can find a CRJ2 performance file for FSBuild here:http://www.fsbuild.com/forum/viewtopic.php...9&highlight=crjYou can also download this free utility for a CRJ2 that allows you to compute fuel, payloads, V speeds, etc., from http://www.flightsim.com. There you will have to log in and perform a file search for a file named crjplanr.zip. Hope this helps in your quest.Dave Vega

>> What is CIVA-INS?a simulation of the Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System. "Many liners where equipped with this unit, the Boeing 707, Douglas DC-8, Lockeed L1011, Douglas DC-10, Boeing 727, Boeing 747 (not the -400 model), just to mention the most famous. It could be easily found installed also on smaller jet aircrafts (like the DC-9 or the B737) or even on executive class jets." (from v1.4 manual, for details: http://www.simufly.com/ins/)>>where did you get the fs hanger? Is that the addon manager?my use of the term 'hanger' means those aircraft installed into FS. there are fs hanger programs to organize/install/un-install aircraft. a search of the flightsim.com and avsim.com libraries (for example) will provide free/share-ware downloads.>>>where did you get the free AIi use the following:* http://www.ai-aardvark.com/* http://www.projectai.com/* http://www.evolveai.com/* http://www.world-of-ai.com/all the above a freeware. project AI and World of AI have installer programs that will do the 'heavy lifting' required to install the aircraft/airlines.>>what is a AFCADS?AFCAD is slang for the airport design files that FS uses to display runways, taxiways, ILS systems, etc. the slang comes from a 'CAD' (computer aided design) program designed by Lee Swordy. these files can be collected from the avsim.com and flightsim.com libraries (for example) to replace the FS default airports. in most cases FS airports allow to few parking spaces, have errors (my personal favorite is incorrect run/taxi-ways at Spokane Intl (KGEG)), and are out of date (FS9 info is from mid-2003 at best).>>top left corner. it shows 250/290 for all 3 itemsthese are the indicated airspeeds the table assumes the aircraft is flying - 250kts is for below transition altitude (in your case, canada, when below 10000' one must be going slower than 250kts IAS); and above transition altitude 290kts. there is also the mach number. this is the speed the aircraft is assumed to fly when IAS equals the assumed MACH number (at that point fly the mach number, not IAS).>>What is IAS then? Also is there a way to convert mach speeds to IAS?IAS = indicated airspeed (see my prior post for discussion of IAS v. TAS: http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...id=27786&page=)mach to IAS: http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/atmosphere/q0112.shtml--

D.........Yesterday I did a 2 hour flight and kept a lot of info on fuel burn for climb-cruise & decent and pro-rated each. I'm going to compare my results with the BADA file and see if its close. I'll let you know how I made out. Questions:> Will you plse tell my the steps I take to get into A1 traffic.What order do I do things?>AFCAD: Do you have to download One airport at a time? What file in fs9 do I install them?
