fuel remaining

A phrase used either by pilots or controllers when relating to the fuel remaining on board. When transmitting such information in response to either a controller question or a pilot-initiated cautionary advisory to air traffic controls, pilots will state the approximate number of minutes the flight can continue with the fuel remaining. All reserve fuel should be included in the time stated, as should an allowance for the established fuel gauge system error.
