Modified Concorde.air and Fuelburn.ini-files for more accurate Fuel Flow (v1.23) [UPDATE 27-04-2017]
Konstantin posted a topic in Concorde-XHello, As some of you know, I have been working on improving the accuracy of subsonic fuel consumption in Concorde-X. Having done some measurements, I have noticed that while the supersonic fuel consumption is very accurate, the subsonic fuel consumption at M0.95 deviates by more than 1000 kg/hr/e from the real-world counterpart at most altitudes, which is quite a lot. I have therefore taken some time to address this issue by modifying the Concorde.air-file and the very important fuelburn.ini-file. Here is an overview of the changes and improvements made to the files (you can downloa
Concorde's maximum range is 4500 statute miles (3910nm). Whilst the EGLL-TBPB route is a challenge it can be flown with 7-10T of fuel remaining. It just so happens that the distance between Honolulu and Aukland, NZ is 3814nm or 4389 statute miles. 111 miles inside the max range. Here's the route if you fancy flying it and testing your skills at maximum fuel handling techniques. I'll be trying it in the next few days. How many pax can you load using CPS? Not many I guess. Weather will need to be favourable too. PHNLNZAA_C.pln
