Why is the ETE TO DEST red in the layout below

the title says my question? and is the time displayed how long i have left to arrival?

It means your current fuel level is too low for a safe flight to your destination. If you’re climbing, this is normally fine and will turn white when you level off.

no i am at cruise

will i need to divert?

You will probably want to stop for fuel at another airport then. That’s what I’d suggest.

ok! thanks

How much time is remaining in your flight? It’s possible that there are strong headwinds that could die down as your flight progresses.

That means you don’t have enough fuel to reach your destination. Check your remaining fuel tab, and for example if you have a ETE of 8:20, and remaining fuel of 8:30, you can probably reach there when your aircraft gets lighter

Yeah, that’s possible.

I agree. That would be the safest play.

Which is fuel and which is your ETE?

ETE of 1:03 and remaining fuel of 52 mins? not possible of a safe landing.

Which plane are you flying, I can help you get to a good cruising speed, and make sure you are above 28,000 feet

other way round

why do i need to do that
