Potential Flight TIme Calculator  

Example:
Calculate the Potential Flight Time for the given Flight details.
Enter Fuel Capacity in Gallons for All Tanks = 15
Enter Gallons per Hour (GPH) Consumption Rating = 25
Enter Fuel in Gallons Actually In All Tanks = 5
Solution:
Apply Formula:
Aviation Gasoline weight per gallon (gw)=6.00
Jet A weight per gallon(dw)=6.84
Total Capacity (AvGas) Fuel Load Weight=(Fuel weight)* (gw)
Calculated trip time=Gallons/GPH
Calculated Trip Time = 0.20 Hours
Your Trip Start Fuel Load = 10 Gallons
Full Fuel Load Potential = 0.40 Hours
Trip Start Fuel (AvGas) Load Weight = 30.00 Pounds
Trip Start Fuel (Jet A) Load Weight = 34.20 Pounds
