I am looking for a few volunteers to help me with testing every aircraft once Global is released to map the fuel burn at every stage of flight with specific weight settings. The purpose of this is to create a better formula of expected fuel burn that is specific to the algorithm the FDS uses with fuel burn in Global. This would allow every pilot to have an out of app spreadsheet that would be able to accurately calculate expected fuel burn and provide an IF specific fuel planner that is easy for every IF user to use. Eventually I would look into tying the data calculated into the an app that would automatically be able to give you fuel needs between the airport you are departing from to the airport you are flying to in the aircraft you are flying at a specific load. This would project would be a massive undertaking with a large amount of Independent variables in the controlled setting (0 winds, 0 gusts, no turbulence).
I have already created the spreadsheet with the IVs incorporated and the MTOW of ever aircraft in the simulator. This would be an ongoing project that would update flight models are updated in IF and new aircraft added as well.
I will NOT be taking any Global Alpha Testers or Beta Testers for this project as I want to have them maintain focus on helping FDS with Global. This is an independent project not endorsed by FDS in any manner. I would only allow Global Alpha and Beta testers to participate if FDS Staff and Development team give them formal permission to participate.
Notice: This would require paying attention to the entire flight on your device, something that may be diffficult for some older devices once Global is released.
