View Full Version : Acronym

14th Mar 2009, 10:13

my company is switching from Jepp flight plan to the LIDO flight plan.
I've observed that in the LIDO plan, near the fuel figures, there is an acronym:BRFZFW.
Can someone tell me what it stands for?:confused:

Can't see it on our LIDO's ?!

Every CFP format is different, no matter who provides it. Each customer can develop their own format and content requirements. I have personally seen 18 different LIDO customer versions of a CFP.

As for what BRFZFW means you will need to ask your management team.

I have a recent LIDO Flight Plan in front of me as I type, and, putting together the plain language statements on our plans, believe this to be -

Brakes Release Fuel (at) Zero Fuel Weight.

Is the acronym followed by adjustments for Fuel required with variations in ZFW?

A stab in the dark, stand by for a more knowledgable reply.:uhoh:

sounds like the perfect time to use ryanair's new acronym--

problem-options-inquire (initiate? can't remember)-shite in pants-evaluate-evacuate?

the point being-these acronyms are getting out of control!!!! ha!
