We got a new video from World of Aircraft: Glider Simulator and are asking for some alpha/beta testers! Check this post.

    Excessive Fuel use

    Thanks for your reply. I was one of those, sorry for that 😞 Yes, I've read what you wrote about it somewhere and just wanted to sum up this thread. The trip fuel varies massively when entering different block fuel values in the INIT FUEL PREDICTION page. It should only differ by small amounts according to the different fuel weight, shouldn't it? It seems not have an adverse effect on the flight, I just noticed it and thought it might be related. Thanks. Indeed, this is the only real issue I encountered so far. Take your time. I love the A330!

    Excessive Fuel use

    Just to get things sorted: It seems there are at least five different issues mentioned in this topic: 1. The total fuel amount calculated by the Aerosoft Airbus X Fuel Planner is too low for the A330. Workaround: Enter the value calculated by Simbrief / PFPX. 2. The preflight trip fuel calculation on the INIT FUEL PREDICTION page inadequatly depends on the value entered for the Block fuel. I see this on every flight preparation. 3. The GWCG is incorrect when loading via GSX. It is okay when using Instant Load. 4. The EFOB values in the MCDU are too low during cruise, but the actual fuel consumption is correct compared to the Simbrief calculations and the preflight calculations in the MCDU. I have this issue on every flight. 5. The actual fuel consumption of the A330 is too high. I never had this problem so far and I am not sure if anybody really had or just aborted the flight due to the misleading EFOB predictions. Just to confirm: Am I correct that none of these issue has been adressed in 1.0.0.5?
  3. I also hear this sound on every takeoff and wondered what it is. No tables extended here as well.
  4. Looking forward. Thanks a lot for your contribution. It's a shame American gave up that bare metal look - now that we have PBR! Btw. anybody doing a Condor A330? Would be very much appreciated.

    I'd assume that is a different issue then. The EFOB values for all waypoints are wrong right after takeoff.

    UTC time predictions are ok for me. Were all your UTC time predictions completely off or only after the discontinuity?

    For me this problem has absolutely nothing to do with ActiveSky. This time I did not launch ActiveSky at all to test this. I used the "Cold Fronts" weather theme of P3D. Exactly the same issue shortly after takeoff. As you can see from the screenshot: actual FOB = 15.8 EFOB at next waypoint (which is 9 nm away) = 10.1 ! Data.zip

    But the fuel consumption itself seems to be correct. It is just the EFOB values that are miscalculated somehow. So you should be fine to continue the flight with the fuel calculated by simbrief. Did you compare the actual FOB with the predictions calculated by simbrief for each waypoint? For me it always is quite spot on. And the EFOB values somehow recover to the end of the flight.

    I just accidentally found this issue. It might be related. The trip fuel calculation apparently depends on the block fuel entered (and not just because of the different fuel weight). I just entered different block fuel values here pre-flight and the trip fuel shows unplausible values, it even becomes negative. Additionally I also have the issue with the invalid GWCG value, reported here (and I cannot always solve it with "instant load"): Maybe related as well.

    Not going to make any comparisons here and only wanting to help: I made 100+ flights using ActiveSky with the Airbus of the other (more expensive) developer that also imports the winds from ActiveSky and never ever had an issue with the EFOB predictions there. So I doubt that this can simply be put down to weird weather by ActiveSky. Also if it was caused by fluctuations in the ActiveSky weather the EFOB values should also be fluctuating. But that is not what I see. The EFOB goes constantly down in the first half of the flight and goes constantly back up again in the second half of the flight.
  11. Great, thanks a lot! And +1 for American and Hawaiian, please.

    Data.zip Just in case you need more logs. The thread title is misleading because the actual fuel consumption is spot on. It is just the EFOB values in the MCDU that are significantly too low temporarily. The EFOB values are okay until just after takeoff. Then suddenly all the shown values are about 6 + 8 tons too low. That starts with the next waypoint and continues from there. So the calculation between waypoints seems to be correct. The problem is that the EFOB for the next waypoint is much too low. The discrepancy gets worse for some time, then somewhere midflight starts to improve and shortly before approach the values get correct again. The actual fuel consumption is correct throughout the flight (according to SimBrief calculations for each waypoint and actual FOB readings). That has been the same for me on all my flights so far.

    Same here. The MCDU values that were initially totally off slowly caught up with reality during the flight and the values were correct when I reached the final waypoint.
