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.

fuel capacity and range A330

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys 

 

Maybe i'm wrong but i noticed that the fuel capacity and range don't match  see screenshots both on simbrief and prepared

in mcdu3 max capacity is 76.5 tons while simbrief gives 79.0 as max and prepared in startup screen says 109 tons of fuel the aircraft mcdu3 of 76.5 tons means i cant even fly from eindhoven to capetown wich is only 5350 nm.

this limits the range of the long haul flights i can make.

is this a glitch in either system or am i doing something wrong.

 

with kind regards

The number in the MCDu is correct. The description in the "select vehicle" box is for whatever reason wrong.

But why cant you fly EHEH-FACT?

While Simbrief is a quite good tool, it is not always right. ;)
