When the climb parameters are entered on the
Alternate Climb Init page, the FMS calculates a Top Of
Climb (TOC) leg segment that is used for fuel
calculations. The TOC is displayed on the Alternate
Flight Plan Leg A page for the leg that contains the
TOC. Refer to Figure 3B -61 and Table 3B-45. All leg
segments previous to the TOC use the climb leg
calculations for fuel burn. Following the TOC, the fuel
burn rates for each leg are used for fuel usage
The initial fuels entered on the Alternate Fuel Init
page is used in the total fuel summary for the currently
defined alternate flight plan. Initial total fuel is entered
when the quantity of fuel loaded is currently known or
planned. If desired, this value can remain blank and
the FMS will calculate a total fuel summary that must
be entered prior to departure on the Fuel Summary
Reserve fuel can be entered as either a
percentage of mission fuel (%), specified weight (klb),
or duration (min) using the fuel burn rate of the last leg
of the alternate flight plan.
The ground and approach fuel allowances are
calculated in the total fuel summary as indicated on
the Fuel Summary page.
