pre flight planning
Pre-Flight Planning
  • AOPA DUATS Flight Planner showed good tailwinds, 5.5 hours enroute
    • Piper Turbo Arrow N47912 has 7 hours fuel
    • St. Mary's County Airport (2W6) is half way
      • Good refueling stop along route, VFR expected
      • Will pass 2W6 before sunset
      • Stay there often
    • ATE + TTG > 6.0 hours is "BINGO"
    • ATE + TTG are Actual Time Enroute + Time To Go
    • BINGO: mission rule refuel stop time limit
  • Flew non-stop, refueling stop not needed
