Hello guys I am currently flying from London Heathrow to Johannesburg South Africa and I forgot to add fuel before departure and I’m running low so I’d like to know it’s if there is anyway I can refuel in the air
Not on a live server. Sorry. :(
No mid air fueling is possible. Find the nearest suitable airport and land.
Yes, definitely the best option
That is not possible on the live server, sadly, you might have to divert, then which you can fuel up there and continue the flight, or just leave it at that.
If you’re in one of the few military jets, you can request to be refueled at the link below.
If not, then you will have to do what the others have said. Sorry about that chief :/
Depending on how far out from London you are you could just restart the flight instead of diverting.
Aside from what others have said before - make sure that in future you check you have fuelled up before you push back.
Turns out you can also land on water to fuel up. Just make sure to use your gear so you don’t crash 😂
I don’t recommend it though as it’s super unrealistic and you could get ghosted. I only suggest doing this if you’re in the middle of nowhere and really need fuel.
Standby for the impending violation.
Wait really? How does that work? 😂
Act as if the water it a runway! Land at the proper speed with normal landing configurations and then take off when your done :)
Wait that works? 😂 That’s amazing!
Haha, yeah. I had to do it a few weeks ago when I was flying to Cape Town. I made it there with no problem once I refueled!
So the “water” is basically just a hugeee runway?
In a sense, yes.
So how do you get to the weight settings once you’ve landed in it? Does it just think that you’re at a gate? 😂
Activate your parking brakes and enter the configuration settings. How/why it works, I have no idea.
Haha that’s amazing 😂😂
In real life, do you think fuel is added mid air? lol
