INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
You can now fill in the TAS and LBS PH/PMIN blocks of the DEPARTURE section. Divide
255 by 60 to obtain 4.25 pounds per minute.

We are now ready to enter the body of the jet log. The most efficient method for doing this is:
Determine when L/O occurs.
Complete the L/O line.
Complete the ROUTE TO, IDENT/CHAN, CUS, and DIST blocks.
Compute LEG FUELS.
It is now necessary to determine the course from NPA to CEW. You may use a plotter, however,
another accurate method is to connect the two points with the edge of your jet log and read the
course off the CEW compass rose. Additionally, you can calculate distance using the edge of the
jet log by placing tick marks along the edge corresponding to the positions of NPA and CEW
and reading off the distance using the mileage scale on the bottom of your chart. Using this
method, we get a course of 045º and a distance of 40 NM. Note how it is done in Figure 1-6:
