CDU PERF RESERVES and new DataLink

Post by DaddyBoon »

Hello,

Until now I've always used FINRES+ALTN as value for my CDU PERF page (https://skybrary.aero/articles/fuel-fli ... efinitions says Reserve fuel is the sum of Alternate fuel plus Final Reserve fuel).

I'm now using the new DataLink functionality "PERF INIT: Load initial performance data" and notice that only FINRES is considered as "RESERVES".

So... I was wrong(?)(!)
