Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Fuel Planner Question

Recommended Posts

I planned a flight via SimBrief KSAN to KSFO in the A319 w Full PAX/1889kg cargo with alt KSMF, dist 89 nm.

My fuel load in adv mode = 6.495 

My fuel load simple mode = 7.482. 

Curious as to why the big difference (15% on this short flight)?  Only thing I can think of is the simple mode gives an extra allowance of fuel to make up the distance to an unknown alternate.

 

Note: After years of Airbus denials, the A3xxx series, coupled with the X56 flight system, is really challenging and fun to fly.  Congrats on a great flt sim aircraft series.

Hi,

 

the answer is quite simple. Normally you use either one of the two modes. If you use the "Simple Mode" then there is no possibility considered to change any of the Advanced Parameters like Alternate Distance. The "Simple Mode" p. e. always calculates with 200 nm distance to the alternate destination........

 

Regards,

Rolf
