The headwinds were as forecast. The views along the Gulf Shore made up for our slow progress, however. It was as beautiful a day as I ever remember seeing there. Along the way Destin looked like a good bet, though I had to come back on the power to make it there with the required reserves. The amount of reserve fuel I like to arrive with is a figure that for me changes depending on the conditions. When the weather is fairly good with high temp/dew point margins, as it was in the Panhandle, I will go with an hour. My ability to accurately know how much fuel is on board a is easier and more accurate than ever with the Perspective G1000-based avionics. As you might know, there’s a range ring on the MFD that is based on fuel consumption and current ground speed--the ring comes in very handy for figuring reserves. You can expand and contract the ring with power, watching the ring grow as you reduce power and watching it shrink as you add power. The headwinds were slightly worse than forecast, but by coming back on the power, we made our first stop in Destin with an hour's fuel in reserve. Once on the ground, we added the precious little amount of fuel we could while still being within weight and balance limits, giving us enough for our next leg and then a little bit more in reserve.
