Wow! How many fuel stops can you calculate Mark? @Mark_Denton

I have a minimum of 3 fuel stops planned with a 4th one as an alternate just in case. Going to try to make it with 3 though. Trimming the aircraft properly is essential to gain a little better fuel efficiency along with knowing the winds aloft. @Michael_Weinblatt

Thanks a lot :) I will

I will be posting a new video tutorial on trim once global is released or close to it. @Subhaxs Yeah, trim is essential. It doesnt really play much of a role in the public build right now with exception of taking off and landing (along with recalibrating) to relieve constant “back pressure”, however, it is a necessity with Global flying and managing fuel burn efficiently. Its just another one of those features/physics that have been implemented to mirror real world flying. As a real world pilot, we care always adjusting trim as well.

When the next Beta release is up (for beta testers obviously) take a look at JFK ATC and try to get the difference.

(Hint. It’s the best change that JFK in IF will have in a long time).
