FS addons for planning, fuel entry directly into FS

Recommended Posts

Is there software available that will do flight planning (such as, FSNavigator) and fuel calculation, and then enter that information directly into FS GPS and fuel tanks without having to go through the Flight Planner setup screens?Thanks.

yes and no.FSBUILD ver2 will do all you ask EXCEPT load the fuel tanks for you. It will however tell you exactly how much fuel you require (with all real world requiremnts). It can even take into account winds aloft for fuel planning purposes. All of this is displayed on your kneeboard (F10) for reference. And yes, it ports directly into the FS9 GPS (amongst many other formats).great program.

Mike you are so right, it is a GREAT program and the fuel loads are really VERY good. I use it on the PMDG 737NG and it almost nails the fuel reserves on each flight. I would say the only reason it does not is my wind calculations and I sometimes don't feed the FSMeteo data into it.Bob

I have to agree, FSBuild is the program for you. It is a very powerful program once you take the time to learn it. In the beginning it seemed like a bit too difficult to learn but now that I have read the manuals a copy of times :-), I really enjoy using it.
