Fuel planners for flight simulators are readily obtainable. However adding realistic cargo weights
and /or passenger baggage is hard to find typical load charts or calculators. Its easy to wing it by assuming most passenger with checked luggage are using around 75 Lbs. +/- total. Unless I’m wrong
As for cargo ?? Not sure
So does anybody have any REALISTIC formulas ??
Answered part of my own question …
Example : American Airlines has a max checked bag weight of 50 lbs. and 75 lbs for business/first class passengers. So that’s a good start.
Still looking at cargo/freight loading
feedback still welcomed thanks
Here’s what I usually do, for flying short/medium hauls.
Usually works for holiday flights. If I’m feeling lazy I’ll just do all at one luggage weight. It’s not an exact solution, I doubt there is one, but it’s close enough for me.
Sorry I don’t have imperial measurements.
That’s helpful and worth working with
thank you !
I think once the maximum weight per bag
permissible is determined the rest is subject. Lol I calculate everything in pounds…so I keep busy converting. thanks
