  • 330722 - confusing wording?


    Don't you think that in the following question the working is a little bit confusing?

    330722

    Given:
    Trip length is 4:30
    Reserve fuel is 30% of trip fuel.
    Taxi fuel is 20 kg
    Block fuel is 550 kg
    What fuel remains when there is 1:45 trip time still remaining?


    The answer is 281kg, but I think it should be 250, as the question asks specifically for the TRIP time, not FLIGHT time or endurance remaining.
    What do you think, would be there any grounds to appeal if it comes to the real exam and such a confusing wording?

    Sorry but it doesn't seem confusing to me (which makes a change!). As far as I can tell (and I've been flying 20 + years) trip time is the same as flight time isn't it?

      As far as feedback goes, this seems about right .... from last week ... 2 of the 30% type questions, including one which said you are on a 4h35 flight, and have 1h25min REMAINING, how much fuel do you have left.?
