When I’ve started flight and looked at the ete to my destination it keeps saying a certain amount of minutes and fuel in red or orange at the bottom. Does anyone know what that means?
You’re low on fuel maybe?
You might not have enough fuel to reach your destination in the case of orange and you don’t have enough fuel to reach your destination in the case of red. Time to divert.
That happens after takeoff even when I have max fuel
That’s because when you climb towards cruise, you have the highest fuel flow.
Do you mind explaining that a bit more please?
You’re nose is pointing up and you’re as heavy as you’ll ever be. Pretty simple :)
When you are in FL cruise it should go back to white if you calculated the correct fuel block
Once you get to cruising altitude and level off it should clear the warning assuming you have enough fuel in the first place.
Also, don’t take off at 100% and don’t have a high rate of ascent as it will burn the most fuel.
If I recall correctly, this is how it goes:
- If the ETE is red, you have <30 minutes of fuel remaining once you reach your destination.
- If the ETE is orange, you have <45 minutes of fuel remaining once you reach your destination.
Ok, thank you Henrik
That helps, thank you
Yeah, when on climbout your speed is much lower so it estimates you’ll be flying the flight at that speed. But then you reach cruise and speed up, it most likely shouldn’t go red :) (If you’ve filled up enough )
