Fuel management system or function

Fuel management system or function – An advanced avionics system that assists the pilot in managing fuel by considering fuel flow, airspeed, and winds to help predict fuel remaining at each waypoint along the programmed route, total endurance, and the viability of alternative routings or diversions. Stand-alone systems may integrate the output data into the FMS/RNAV or provide a discreet display, while the fuel management function is an integral portion of the FMS/ RNAV system – In either instance, the fuel data management goals are similar.
