Got a flight plan here for an ATR72-500 Operator just hoping someone could shed some light on it!!
From Gatwick to Liverpool
B-TRIP 00:49 630
C-CONT 00:02 30
D-ALT 00:49 670
E-HOLD 00:30 390
REQD 02:10 1770
= EGNX 80NM
= EGKK 211
So from this i cannot see where the reserve comes into play.....! With this rule below:
Final Reserve Fuel should, for turbine engine aeroplanes, be sufficient to fly for 30 minutes at
1500 ft above the aerodrome, which could be the destination alternate or else it could be the
intended destination (when no destination alternate is required).
Can anyone shed any light on this?? Hold and reserve fuel are seperate right?!
Also when entering into the FMC the reserve, do you always take this figure (the actual reserve?)
