Refer to figure.
Given: Planned and actual data as shown in the Flight Log excerpt. Arriving overhead GAMMA you are cleared for direct routeing to MIKE. The flight time for direct flight GAMMA to MIKE will be 40 min.

Provided that flight conditions on the direct leg GAMMA to MIKE remain unchanged and fuel consumption remains unchanged, what fuel remaining should be expected at waypoint MIKE?

  • A
    2652 kg
  • B
    1268 kg
  • C
    1900 kg
  • D
    1852 kg
First Step: Calculate the actual fuel consumption BETA - GAMMA
  • Fuel consumed BETA - GAMMA = Actual Fuel remaining at BETA - Actual Fuel Remaining at GAMMA
  • 3180 kg – 2700 kg = 480 kg
  • Time BETA – GAMMA = 1:42 – 1:18 = 24 min
  • Fuel Consumption = 480 / 24 = 20 kg/min

Second Step: Calculate fuel consumed GAMMA - MIKE
TIME GAMMA - MIKE = 40 min
Fuel consumed: 40 min x 20 kg/min = 800 kg
Third Step: Calculate Fuel remaining at MIKE
FUEL at MIKE = Actual Fuel over GAMMA - Fuel Consumed (GAMMA - MIKE)
FUEL at MIKE = 2700 kg – 800 kg = 1900 kg
