BOE4 Extra Fuel

Hello IFC,

I am now preparing to fly the BOE4 flight with a 787-9 (full fuel, no pax no cargo). I was wondering if anyone had done this flight and how much fuel there was to spare? I might come back late and pass my destination, so I don’t want to stall or receive any violations/ghostings

What’s your estimated flight time?

I’ve made it just over 21 hours in the 787-9 with full fuel, and no pax and cargo.

I’ll spawn in and check

Is that the Dreamliner flight?

Indeed.

I was just thinking of making a group flight for that exact flight

It’s only supposed to be 18 hours. I’ve done the flight 2 times already and it was only 18 for me…

Anyways, the flight was done with the 788 I believe, but it’s up to you. Also, I would load around 20 hours of fuel, and remember that step-climbs are important 🙃

If you step climb properly, you should have about 3 hours of fuel left when you touch down.

shameless plug, but check this out if you want to really maximize your time aloft:

Alright! Thanks for that info. (I have IF-A so I will use that)

Sorry to revive this guys, but I had one more question. Is there a way to grab the step climbs (and altitudes at each waypoint) from FlightAware or another service?

I’m not sure, let me have a look

SimBrief can give you stepclimbs and will tell you the waypoints to stepclimb at

SimBrief cannot plan BOE4 tho, can it? If so, please tell me how!

Ok then use FPLtoIF.com which gives you stepclimbs using the FlightAware flightplan

For some reason, fpltoif does not load the plan.

Not sure if this helps but I found this on flight aware
