T6A NAVIGATION
Fuel flow for training purposes is based on a NATOPS fuel flow at sea level and 180 KIAS
which is 480 pounds/hour or 8 pounds/minute.
Example: In Figure 45, the ETE between points A and B is 8+20 min. At 8 pounds/minute, this
equates to 70 pounds. Subtracting this Figure from an initial fuel quantity at point "A" will give
you the fuel remaining at point "B" (860  70 = 790)
Given the data in Figure 45, what is the EFR at C? The answer is computed in Figure 46.
Using the CR2 computer, we find 92 pounds of fuel are required to get from B to C. This is
rounded up to 95 pounds, and then subtracted from 790 to get 695 pounds.

Figure 46 Computing Remaining EFRs
Compute remaining EFRs for each point of your lowlevel routing in the same manner. Each
point has EFR and BINGO data, therefore; you will have one information block for each point on
your chart, including the target. The last information block, however, will indicate your first
heading and altitude after completing the lowlevel route.
Return Enroute EFRs
In order to compute mission completion fuels, we need to compute the EFR at the IAF. Using
the normal thrust climb chart, find the time, fuel, and distance required to climb to planned flight
altitude. For mission planning, assume your climb begins at sea level. Subtract the climb
distance from the total return leg distance to compute cruise distance. Given the following data,
compute the time and fuel required to reach the IAF:
Measured distance from lowlevel exit to IAF [via flight planned (stereo) route]: 79 NM From
Stereo Route listing: Level off altitude 9000 feet after lowlevel. EFR at lowlevel exit point:
480 pounds.
