Fuel Loader

The Fuel Loader tab is where you will be able to load up your aircraft with the fuel necessary to complete your flight. It is automatically populated with all the necessary data based on weather, aircraft, distance to be flown and headwind component if applicable.

Remember the itemized fuel values we saw in the Trip Folder? These are the same values which are presented here in a much easier to read format. Here you can also add a Head Wind component and the calculator will adjust the Release Fuel in real-time in order to take the head wind into account.
All the fuel calculations take into account the weight of the aircraft, engine fuel consumption and flight distance, among other things.

Here is where we finally get to load up our aircraft with fuel. You will adjust the sliders until the FUEL TO BE LOADED textbox read the same amount as the fuel displayed on the RELEASE textbox from the fuel calculator.

If you attempt to load more fuel than required, LiveDISPATCH will warn you about this so you can make the corresponding adjustments on the sliders.

You also have an option to enter a headwind component, which will allocate more fuel to be loaded.

Once you have the fuel all queued up for transfer, you can then click on the LOAD FUEL INTO AIRCRAFT button, sit back and let the fuel truck load your aircraft with the precious liquid.

Once the fuel load is completed, LiveDISPATCH will automatically switch back to the Main Screen and the pushback gauge will be available for use. If you chose via the LD options not to use the pushback gauge, then the START FLIGHT button will be available for use.
