while testing your new features I came across a problem in terms of Alternate Aerodrome (ALTN) planning and the related fuel calculation:
- No Alternate Aerodrome
In this case of an EASA calculation, it requires 15 minutes of Additional Fuel (ADDFUEL) on top of the 30 min Final Reserve (FINRES). Calculating FRA-LAS without an Alternate Aerodrome (yeah, knowing it’s illegal, just for testing) it does only reduce the ALTN fuel to zero and not add the required ADDFUEL.
(6) The minimum additional fuel, which should permit:
(ii) holding for 15 minutes at 1 500 ft (450 m) above destination aerodrome elevation in standard conditions, when a flight is operated without a destination alternate aerodrome.
- Two Alternate Aerodrome Calculation
Another problem on this side. In terms of two Alternates which are planned if the Destination Aerodrome (DEST) is below landing mima, EASA requires the Alternate Aerodrome to be available which requires the greater amount of fuel (basically, the one which is the most far away one),
(4) Alternate fuel, which should:
(ii) where two destination alternate aerodromes are required, be sufficient to proceed to the alternate aerodrome that requires the greater amount of alternate fuel.
I would appreciate if you could implement those requirements!
Best Regards and sorry for bothering you!
