Hello fellow simmers and pilots,
After a few years of simming I want to go deeper into the more serious stuff and really want to learn things as I go.
I love vfr flying and thus I ordered a chart, a plotter and an A6B to start learning the basics of flight planning.
But going through all the hassle of all those calculations, what I really like doing by the way, I’m missing the “why” in it.
Why do pilots need to calculate their fuel rather than just top off those tanks and stay within the action radius?
I hope finding my answer here, that way I can understand the thoughts behind all this planning.
