Okay, I'm writing a online game. I've got two airports and the equipment. For example: Heathrow - LAX on a 744.
What I want to work out is the fuel required, as this will apply a cost to the airline. I know there are many many things such as wind, temperature, regulatory requirements like alternate airport etc but I want something simple.
How can I work out simply the fuel required? Are there charts I can use for working out takeoff, each hour in cruise and descent?
