Fuel Sops

Rick M 4 years ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 4 years ago 1

I fly a Cessna 150. To fly a 300-800 mile flight multiple fuel stops are necessary.
The last time I flew to Oshkosh from Texas I used a flight planner that let me type in my departure airport and destination airport. KJSO-KOSH. Well over 800 miles and beyond the fuel range of the 150. The planner inserted fuel stops along the route that would be the most efficient based upon the fuel burn and fuel quantity I had entered. Then I was able to fine tune the fuel stops with the rubber banding feature. This allowed me to see my entire flight plan. Currently, the AOPA flight planner requires me to create 4 or 5 individual flight plans to accomplish the same flight. This is less efficicient. I suggest implementing the method I listed above. Your thoughts?
