I’m currently doing a flight from LAS-GRU. When I was fueling the plane it said I had 14:30 hours of fuel left. But I’m 30 min into the flight and it says I only have 8:30 left. Does anyone what’s happen Thxs.
Most likely because you’re climbing or facing strong winds. That is the time left you have at those conditions. Also as @Speedyyy said, you will get lighter as you burn more off
As you continue to fly you will get lighter and your fuel remaining will increase :)
Rn I’m at FL 340 and I have a tail wind at 68 kts.
Besides what the guys said above, try to step climb your cruise altitude when u’re heavy loaded.
For safety purposes I’m diverting to El Paso for refueling.
No you don’t have to, with a tailwind and your load becoming lighter as you continue to fly, you will definitely make it safely.
What aircraft are you flying?
I just got more fuel.
This is a really good website to plan your flight and solve issues like these.
