CPL final Question 37
Madox01 created the topic: CPL final Question 37
The Question states:
An Echo has 300litres of fuel on board at start up. If the flight fuel required is 120litres, how long could the aeroplane plan to hold at the destination aerodrome if holding is set at 35% MCP?

In your working you have allowed for 15% of the total fuel on board [79 gals]. You only need to carry 15% of the flight fuel. So:
Minimum fuel required is 32 x 1.15 + 15 + 3 = 55 gals.
Fuel available = 79 gals.
Fuel available for holding = 24 gals.
@ 17.2 gph = 84 minutes.
