after passenger has boarded the plane
So I would say 2 50lbs per pax
i have 388 pax
I usually do just less then half the weight of the pax
how do i do the calculations?
Let me re do my math lol
388 times 50 is 19,400, double that and get 38,800 thats probably more right
thank you…i’m not good at math
Don’t worry me ether ;)
I usually do # of passengers x 60 to get my cargo load.
what is the 60?
The approximate amount each peice of luggage (Cargo) weighs. Honestly, it’s really something you have to just decide for yourself. Or, use a flight planning website that will do it for you.
I use SimBrief to calculate my passenger load.
Infinite Flight assigns 170lbs/passenger and zero cargo, but Simbrief assumes 175lbs/passenger plus an extra 55lbs baggage (cargo). I just add an extra 5lbs to account for that remainder between Infinite Flight and SimBrief’s passenger weights.
That’s why I multiply the number of passengers by 60 to get the cargo amount. Obviously this doesn’t apply for ALL types of aircraft though. For example, I don’t think a CRJ flight will have passengers carrying 60lbs of baggage each. So I reduce that number down to 30lbs each.
