C-130 fuel planner

Looking for a accurate fuel planning website like Simbrief to use for the C-130. Simbrief dosent have the C-130 listed. Fuel planner.com does but doesn’t take into account different waypoint.


Hi there!

Give some community members a few minutes to see if they can find something that works for you :)





Try using this website, it’s basic but it’s better than nothing.

I would see how accurate it is, simbrief usually gives a quick route so give some extra fuel using the calculations and I’m sure you can use both hand in hand with each other.



Ok cool what’s the website?

My sincere apologies, I forgot to link it 😂. Check now. Good Luck!


Lol no worries. Yea I know of this it just gives a direct straight line point to point. Im looking for more like something Simbrief gives you as far as waypoints go.

Why not use both? I regularly do this but just use the fuel calcs from simbrief and use another site for the waypoints. Don’t rely on one, that’s all I will say.


Yea I guess that’s a good idea. I’m just looking for a more accurate 130 fuel calculation.

Try online flight planner http://onlineflightplanner.org

I haven’t used it for the C130 but it has been fairly accurate for other aircraft

Additionally I use the following formula as a guide for fuel planning.

(FPL distance nm / 425 kts) +10% + 90mins.

Where FPL is total distance in NM, 425 is an average GS (you might have to adjust for the C130)

FPL = 550 nm

550nm/425 = 1.29 hrs = 77mins
85+90=175mins = 2hrs 55mins


I know about this website I’m pretty sure it gets the fuel calculation from fuel planner.

Yes it does, however as it works out a routing it will work it out more accurately
