New Advanced Aircraft Performance Module

RocketRoute took 1.5 years to develop our Advanced Performance system, ensuring that jet and turbo prop fuel burn calculations meet the highest levels of accuracy.

The good news is that members report actual burns are within 1% of planned.

Advance Performance is available on Business and Airline Memberships. Features allow planners to set Power Settings for each phase of flight and the system will adjust for weather, tempurature, mass and FL.

A full list of aircraft with Advanced Performance Data is available here here.
