I’m Making A New Thread For The Fuel Calculator. This is the official thread, so please keep the informal conversation down.
You May Have Some Questions:
Q: What is it?
A: An Accurate Fuel Use Calculator, To Plan How Much Fuel You Should Use While Flying With A Flight Plan. (Assuming you stick to it, of course. I’d pack a little extra, to account for deviation from flight plan.
Q: How Accurate Will It Be?
A: Since Understanding How Accurate This Calculator Should Be on it’s own, not yet accounting for pilot deviation, is extremely important, I can’t yet say.
Q: When Will It Be Available?
A: There is no telling. My current schedule is hectic, and I still have tons of data to collect for each aircraft. It’s gonna take a while, to say the least.
Q: Do You Need Help?
A: Of Course! Help Would Greatly Be Appreciated, Even If You Can Only Collect Data For Me!
Q: How Can I Be Of Assistance?
A: PM Me With What You Want To Help With. I am currently using an Excel Spreadsheet to store Collection of data, and proficiency in Excel Will Help YOU Collect, Store, And Extrapolate the data you get.
I could also use a Web Designer, To Make A Website.
Update: Progress Has Been Resumed On The Fuel Calculator. It will be pretty accurate, but here’s what I’d need.
Distance To Destination:
Ground Speed To Travel At:
Every Descent/ Climb, And At What Power Level: (Also What VS) (I will update the formula so that instead of Power level, i just need to know when you do your Descent/Climb, and what speed.)
Every other piece of information will be stored for each individual plane ready to be recalled when that aircraft is selected.
