Can you please let me know the way my calculation is correct or am I something missing in here.
Q: You are on an IFR Charter flight carrying passengers. You arrived overhead Port Lincoin, SA at 0311UTC with 110 min fuel on board.
Your alternate is 50 min away. You enter the holding pattern due to fog. The latest divert time is:
A) 0318 UTC
C) 0411 UTC
D) 0326 UTC
What I did in here, add fixed reserve + time to alternate (45+50 = 95 min) and deduct from the fuel available (110min - 95min = 15min)
So, I have 15 min available to hold.
If I add-up 15 min to arrived time at the Port Lincoin which is 0326 UTC. Latest divert time?
