MaxSez: Brandon had it by not rounding. My bust for not identifying fuel type for the trip. Either AVGas or JetA where acceptable. Thank you all for participating. Aviators showed there stuff again!

Max, ask some questions regarding the use of an E6B flight computer, that will trip quite a few people up.

For example, how to calculate Mach on the E6B. 😂 Even I would have a little challenge with that but could eventually figure that out. Its been a little while since I spun one of those.
