Fuel Display

Steve,

On the Briefing you show fuel loading in Pounds & Gallons. Can you change that to Pounds & KGs please.

The entire World loads their aircraft in Metric Tonnes, or parts thereof (kg). It's only the Yanks that steadfastly refuse and load their commercial fleet in Pounds, and GA aircraft in US Gallons. Hethans ;)

I've included the Kg conversion throughout the briefing and assessment.
Thanks again Dean.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!


lol just kidding :)

We're so damn stubborn over here, I remember in 1975 when I was in grade school the entire country was going to go metric! We started changing our speed limit signs, as well as many other things...that didn't last to long, too many Americans must have complained because 40 years later it seems like we still haven't moved forward lol!
