i've been playin around doin flights from places that i wouldn't normally go to, and i found this little island off the coast of indonesia, which is supposed to be part of australia. the airport i take off from is cocos keeling intl (YPCC) and my destination spot is bantar lampung indonesia, raden itl (WICT)
when i did this flight in the stationair, i kid you not, with fair weather, flying at 6000ft asl i landed at my destination with 1/2 gallon of fuel in each tank. i thought this was odd so i flew the same route, at the same altitude in the 172, and still had 23% fuel when i landed. this sounds odd to me. i downloaded the plane from avsim, i really like flying it, but i would think it would be capable of longer distances than it seems to be. anyone have an opinion?
you could always tick "unlimited fuel"?
sorry, stupid quick fix! you probably know that one already.
looks like a nice little plane though..what sort of speed?
a little less than 140knots cruise. i like it because it seats 6, with plenty of luggage room, will take off and land on a postage stamp, and is easy to fly.
Cool!!! thanks i'll have to give that a go!
