    Fuel Planning Tool (FPT)

    After more than a year of research, development, and internal testing, I'm happy to announce the upcoming public release of the Fuel Planning Tool:



    The Fuel Planning Tool (FPT) will help you plan for fuel consumption, flight time, combat performance, and navigation data for DCS: A-10C and DCS: F-5E. It features all Nevada and Caucasus Maps navpoints for easy reference and flight plan creation.

    Features:
    - Custom GUI.
    - Detailed user manual.
    - Based on real aircraft performance charts and crosschecked to match DCS.
    - Takeoff and Landing Data cards.
    - Google Earth Flight plan overlay creation.

    Requirements:
    - Keyboard and Mouse.
    - MS Office Excel.

    GUI Screenshots (WIP):

    Google Earth Overlay Example:

    This looks great, we've been in need of a tool like this in DCS for a long time. Good work!

    I just discovered this tool and seriously, thank you! It's an awesome resource! I'm not sure if this is just something on my end but I noticed that Form 70 and the TOLD data export to PDF with strange margins and some of the columns get pushed to the next page. Am I doing something wrong?
    We get it up faster, keep it up longer, and shoot comm all over the world!

    I'm glad you found it useful!
    Can you post some screenshots of the pdfs?
    I think it might be down to what paper size the default printer has, but since it's a pdf I'm not sure.
