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!

Alan: Wow, hätte nicht gedacht das es so viel und so kompliziert ist... dachte echt das wäre einfach rein und fertig 😂 Sehr gutes Video!!

Nur: captain you are hot. U attached?

Stacy Smith: At around 72 Degrees Fahrenheit, Jet fuel weighs close to 7lbs per gallon. Ground crew have to know this because they deal with volume and not weight.

I've hauled fuel before, but I know the weight because I've ran overweight before in a Peterbilt with a 200 gallon capacity. You get about 6 miles to the gallon so if you can run for 300 miles before hitting your 1st scale then by the time you hit the that scale you will be 350lbs lighter. The more scales you miss the more weight you lose.

rupe53: One thing I have noticed is if you ask a commercial pilot about the fuel load or how much will be needed for a flight (say, NY to Miami) they will have the answer in pounds but really have no idea how many gallons that is without stopping to do the math. In their mind it's all about the total weight of the aircraft for take off and landing. How many gallons (or the cost) is someone else's job.

Richard Åsberg: When is the follow-up to this video coming 😉?
