Vroute and the Airbus A318


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Will the A318 be getting added to the aircraft types in the future to enable fuel planning and Vatsim flight bookings.

As the A318 is now quite popular on the EGLC to EINN to KJFK routes with British Airways Virtual

Mikey,

 

Could you pls share your A318 take off performance data that you use in MSFS?

 

Thanks,

Tailwinds are your friend.

 

Is it correct to say this is due to the wind rose flying from west to east in general?

 

Thanks,

Igor.

No, it's not a matter of that so much as going westbound you're flying against the same wind (burning more fuel) that would be aiding your flight when you're going eastbound. Think of it as how it is more work/energy/"fuel" to go up a flight of stairs compared to down them.

I got it, good example.

The other reason the stop at Shannon is needed is that the runway at EGLC is not long enough to allow a fully fueled A318 to depart. Coming bacj the otherway, fuel levels are rather less and so not a problem.

Also note that this aircraft is in full Business cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] config only, so has about half the payload

 

And Airbus has the option to fit ATC's (Additional Center tanks) which form the shape of a AKH ULD
