The Challenger 300 flies high, fast, and far. It can also carry a butt load of things. The downside is it also uses a butt-load of fuel, so make the most of it!
- Unexpected engine failures (1) often times, at altitudes below 25000 ft, one engine will mysteriously fail upon reaching cruise altitude. This is unfortunate, however an unexpected benefit is increased fuel economy. NOTE: in fsx, FSE calculates time flown based on engine 1 time, so only fail engine 2 to avoid cancellation due to overspeed
- Unexpected engine failures (2) sometimes when starting descents from altitudes as high as FL450, one engine will fail, allowing the aircraft to cut idle fuel flow by half during the glide down. This completely unexpected engine failure also saves a great deal of fuel, which goes into your bonus.
- Short field operations – the Challenger 300 can take fields as short as 2500ft when flown right and in the proper conditions, so quit whining about how “we won’t make it”.
- Unexpected engine restarts – sometimes, completely inexplicably the failed engine is able to restart just before landing to provide TOGA or reverse power.
- Definitely do not carry only as much fuel as you need, FAA fuel requirements are there for a reason and definitely are not an immoral, destructive and unreasonable impediment to our ability to carry more cargo.
