This is in RWA as it is a question about weights IRL, and why they are diffferent to IF
I’ve got a question about weights - i know OEW stands for operating empty weight and is the plane with all fluids and things necessary to fly except fuel and with 0 payload, but, I keep noticing discrepancies between the wikipedia or simbrief OEW and the weight of the aircraft without Pax, fuel or cargo in IF.(
Example, Jetstar 787:
OEW of 119,950 IRL
Weight without anything of just over 130,000 in IF
Is there something obvious i’m missing that explains the extra 10 tons (something in the plane on IF that wouldn’t be in OEW calculation)? I really can’t think of it. Thanks!
