I’m about 130nm out from LLBG with 6% fuel left. What is the best thing to do so I don’t run out?
Divert to the nearest airport
How much time left in hours and minutes?
6% fuel on what aircraft? If you’ve been flying long enough and it’s a heavy you might be able to request a priority landing via ATC and make it.
Otherwise find a nearby airport, divert and refuel.
1hr 7min. Nearest is LLBG
ATC wont give you priority so that is why I am saying divert
It’s the A330
That’s plenty, im sure you can get there.
I think its the best to divert becuse as you can see there is a lot of traffic…
Isn’t there a low fuel option on expert server?
Exactly thats why I am saying divert.There are heaps of aircraft in the airspace.I highly doubt you will make it
You have fuel to arrive. In descent the consumption of combistible is lower
So should I fly a little farther with no air traffic or land closer with air traffic
Make sure to plan you’re descent good so you don’t need level off at any points! That will help by using less engine power and for your fuel to last longer!
Next time recommend taking extra fuel…
You may arrive if you are lucky with traffic (but today is FNF). In real life pilots would divert to the nearest suitable airport.
Keep going. Declare low fuel. Gety priority. Land.
If you diverted every time you were low on fuel in real life you probably only get to where you want to be half the time.
This has happended to me before.You will not get priorty.
Declear emergency and see what ATC tells you maybe he will make space or he will say divert to a sutible airport…
Well you should. Poor controlling otherwise.
Next time recommending to use FPL to IF to make sure you don’t have any fuel issue as it does all calculations for you! and tells you how much to carry!
