Fpltoif shows the flight will be an hour early than its supposed to be

Modify your flight plan, if you want to keep it realistic include a deviation a bit to the left/right of your current path

im flying for a VA i doubt they will allow thta
lemme ask

Fuel burn charts

Hold over a fix or an airport, short of your destination, perhaps.

This is done IRL sometimes. Just make sure you don’t run out of fuel.

Why not just do a few 360s at cruise?

well i was sleeping and it was 1 am

If you’re looking for an hour, generally you won’t be able to slow down enough to make that happen - unless your flight is really long. What I would do is fly at normal speed, but build yourself a few 360s before your STAR using waypoints in the area.

where were you 7 hours ago? lmao
