Fuel Burn and TAS Table

Howdy All,

Running through test exams prior to sitting exam tomorrow.
Just a question for anyone that has sat it.

In the text questions here, it still implies reference to find fuel burns etc (i.e. 65% MCP) to do things like PNR calculations.
Now I can remember at 65% MCP in the Echo it is 14GPH an engine

However, I noticed in the Day VFR workbook you get in the exam there is no refernece to fuel burn tables or TAS tables.
Does this mean that in the exam questions those values are given by the examiner or do I need to memorise fuel burn rates for the echo?

Hope that makes sense and sorry if it is a topic that has already been covered, i searched but could not find.

I would expect those values to be given in the exam.

I decided some time ago that I would include the tables for TAS and Fuel Flow in our course supplement to give students the experience of extracting those performance figures from the manual as they would have to do in the real world. The CASA MOS says that students should be capable of using performance tables, so I thought this would be a good way to comply with that requirement.

It is true that no performance tables will be provided in the exam and I think that's a pity. In fact the figures for such things as TAS or Fuel Flow will simply be given in the text of each question so it's actually much easier than it would be in practice.

All the best with the exam

Bob
