StorkJet’s Tips #2 – Take-off fuel consumption

StorkJet's Tips technology   |  

How much fuel can be saved thanks to the optimum take-off configuration? Check our 2nd post from the #StorkJet’s Tips series to check how acceleration altitude and flaps configuration influences the fuel consumption during the take-off!

In the table below we present results extracted from 2 (out of 44!) FuelPro™ initiatives – the Acceleration Altitude and the Take-off Flaps. The analysis covers the results for 3 aircraft types – Embraer E-Jet, Boeing 737-8, and Airbus A320.

For each aircraft type we checked what is the average fuel consumption for take-off, assuming 4 configuration scenario:
1. Flaps High & High Acceleration Altitude
2. Flaps Low & High Acceleration Altitude
3. Flaps High & Low Acceleration Altitude
4. Flaps Low & Low Acceleration Altitude

Having such information we compared the results and indicated the differences in fuel consumption. Next, we calculated what is the real saving potential for each take-off configuration for an exemplary airline (50 aircraft) during one year of operations.

StorkJet Tip:
Use the combination of low flaps and low acceleration altitude to achieve the maximum saving potential!

#StorkJet’s Tips is a series of posts shared via information channels (LinkedIn, Website) where we publish analyses, recommendations, and other supportive materials in the area of fuel efficiency. All the analyses are prepared based on the results from StorkJets solutions – advancedAPM™ & fuelPro™.
