Postby peterom » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:43 am

Here is a URL for a fairly simple way to calculate fuel use. The URL is http://fuel.aerotexas.com/

Here is a sample of what you get:

---------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------- ---------- ---------- --------- -----------

Pilots can also find this fuel link on the SAX dispatch page. Look for the Fuel Pump icon next to the Fuel Summary.

Thanks. I was aware of that helpful info. I guess what I liked was the variety of aircraft available for fuel calculations (for those flying other aircraft for fun), along with a special line for Ifly aircraft.
