Accelerated flight: Fuel burn

Recommended Posts

Twice I have had the A319 on 4x sim speed for lengthy flights, and twice I have run out of fuel in so doing. 

Is it possible that fuel burn during accelerated flight is incorrect?

This is possibly in the wrong sub forum, so please move it as necessary. 

I should add that I have assumed that it is a fuel exhaustion problem insofar as the aircraft shut down into a C&D state, and this may after all be incorrect. 

If it was fuel exhaustion then the batteries would power systems for a short while unless they too closed down before I noticed. 

Anyway, something happened during two flights using accelerated time at 4x speed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the manual say that it doesn't work with time acceleration, or that strange things can happen?

 

I'm pretty sure accel is not recommended, I either saw that in the manual, or read it in these forums in an Aerosoft post.

You are correct!

 

It does work in X4, however we do not presently support or recommend it.

 

Best wishes.
