How much fuel does a jet airplane need? Explained by Captain Joe

INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers! Today I´ll be answering a question on "How much fuel does a jet airplane need?". But more regarding trip fuel, contingency fuel, alternate fuel, extra fuel, final reserve and taxi fuel. This is a basic guideline on fuel figures and fuel planning of any commercial jet airplane. How much fuel jet airplanes eventually use, will be discussed in a upcoming video. Thank you very much for watching. The next video will be online next saturday!

Comments

Greg smith: Hi joe great videos, could you do something on intercepting the glide slope and also when you disconnect the auto pilote on approach

Andy Kashu: Don't understand so many dislikes. Really. Which blokes would dislike this vid and why?

Jamaluddin Shaikh: Hello Joe sir...plz explain how the APU helps to start the engine?

Andy: It's pretty much how our taxi drivers fuel up their cars: exactly as much as they need to get to their destination.

Chenda Pharith: Such a great video Joe, but I wonder that after park the plane, fuel is add on over the existing in tank for the next flight or pump the existing out and then put the new one ?

sambuddha das: you did not mention what kind of fuel an aircraft use and how much fuel needed for a jet plane?

Tomas T: the landing gear of a plane is never designed to land the plane fully loaded.

upasna sharma: I guess who asked this question wanted.to know in number how many tons of fuel is used u dumb

PH1LZ: Wieso finde ich deinen Kanal denn erst jetzt, lieber Joe :) Großartige Videos, sehr informativ! Du hast einen neuen Abonnenten gewonnen :)

PS: Auf deiner Website hat sich unter "about" ->"20 facts about me" bei Punkt 10 ein Tippfehler eingeschlichen. Nur zur Info, nichts Gravierendes! :P

Freue mich auf weitere Videos!

Ikram Hakimi Mohd Hassan: Why can't airplane fuel tank to fill to the max? Or fill the petrol until the tank is full?

Captain Boeing: Very good explanation CAPTAIN..

Rishi Thunuguntla: A small question actually since my childhood
#What if the landing gear of the plane fails when ur approching the air strip#
Can u just explain that senario
I will feel happy if it's explained by a video because they r just awesome

Gaminoes: What happens if the plane engines face any foreign materials like plastics, or birds while flying?

igotanM16: I have a question: If something happened on the runway the flight was going to land on and the plane had to divert, then why do they have to go to a different airport and not just circle around to a different runway?

Ignas Brazys: Is the "block fuel" counted with the weight of passengers+cargo or just an empty plane?

Sherif Salem: your videos are amazingly interesting and informative...I regret not having chosen to be a pilot - I had considered it when I was going into university but figured it would be too hard :) I love planes and although I've been flying for years, I still find planes fascinating.

michael wood: "Your really having a really bad day" lmao
I love your videos and you always explain an EXTREMELY complicated machine in easy to understand terms.
I always wondered if something happened like in the movies (oh, god the pilots are unconscious can anyone fly a plane?) if I could step up and do it. I am extremely experienced at driving anything on wheels, tracks or water and always thought "hell yeah, I could do it" but after watching your videos I came to the conclusion that we would all just die....lol

BOB: trip fuel ;-)

Robbae: wünderbar. jks i'm english

Anas DimpleDude: Aye, Captain.
