The Advanced Model (available in FliteStar Corporate only) allows for more complete cruise information, an unlimited number of cruise settings, and more than a simple linear climb and descent profile. It can also accommodate override fuel flow settings.


The Basic Model (which can be used in all versions of FliteStar) contains less detailed performance data . However in most cases it still provides highly accurate time and fuel burn results. When information is entered into the basic model format, the FliteStar application interpolates or extrapolates additional data points for the given weight or performance settings. With 5 rows of information and three power settings available for each weight setting, the interpolation can be highly accurate but not optimal for all altitudes and flying conditions.

Which Model is for You?

One area in which a Basic model may excel is when detailed performance information needed for the advanced model format, is lacking. The calculations for the Basic model interpolates additional data points, however the Advanced model uses only the nearest entered data points without interpolation or extrapolation. If too many gaps exist in the data, the Advanced model could be less accurate than the Basic model.
