Heavies or what the game consider them to be seems a little off, doesnt the 757 count as a heavie eaven due to it’s wake turbulance, if I try to add heavie to an A330, or 767 it says not heavie enough, also the MD11 seems to not be a heavie, is realy nothing shot of a 777 a heavie? Becuais the A300-600F that lands at KPIT adds heavie to his callsighn.

The 757 is a narrow-body plane, not a heavy. For the other aircraft, it usually depends on the weight.

It advises if the weight is not suitable for the heavy designation but you can override it.

The designation is based on a few factors not just size.

The Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW) for the Boeing 757 is 255,000lbs or there about. The FAA classifies a “Heavy” aircraft as an aircraft that has a MTOW of 300,000lbs or more. The 757 is about 45,000lbs too light in this case to make that category, so it would fall into the “Large” category.

It doesn’t it just bases it off your current weight configuration

Also I dont want to be that anoying person who is in a Cessna 208 Callsighn Airforce 1 Super
