The New EASA Fuel Policy

With the introduction of the revised EASA fuel policies later in 2022, will SimBrief be modified to support them?

Hi Richard,

I looked briefly at the amendments but it does not appear that much will need to be modified. The new policy reorganises the regulations a bit into different schemes, and provides more flexibility to operators who can apply to use their own fuel policy (with several conditions of course). But the basic/default fuel policy appears to be mostly unchanged.

That is to say, basic contingency fuel will still be 5% (or 3% with an ERA), min/max contingency fuel hasn’t changed, the ERA location requirements haven’t changed, etc.

It remains to be seen what exactly the individual or operator-specific policies will look like.

Best regards,

I look forward to seeing how you address the operator-based fuel policies.
Thanks for your reply,
