Boeing 777 Fleet Statistical Contingency Fuel Determination on Fixed Routes


The statistical contingency fuel determination method was developed for the objects “long-range aircraft type—fixed route”. The statistical contingency fuel reserve is numerically determined for the period of 2016–2018 years for the Boeing 777 type fleet on the scheduled flights Moscow–Khabarovsk and Moscow–Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
