Taxi Fuel Burn

Asked by: 3812 views , , ,
Aircraft Systems, Student Pilot

Guys, what's the best way to calculate/estimate or consider in a fuel burn taxi? I didn't find anything about the AFM. In my case,I'm flying C-152 and I'd like to have an idea how much would be great to consider and also to calculate  a proper Landing Weight at the Aircraft's W&B. Thanks in Advance. Carlos

    Cadu, look at the notes in the TIME, FUEL, AND DISTANCE TO CLIMB chart in the Performance section.

    Page 5-7 or 5-13 of the Pilot Operating Handbook give the start, taxi and take-off fuel burn for a C-152 as 0.8 gallons.
