Why Should The 737-900 Be Reworked?
Infinite Flight 737-800 vs Infinite Flight 737-900
|Max Passengers||32,084 lbs/189 Pass.||32,084 lbs/189 Pass.|
|OEW (Empty Weight)||80,689 lbs||80,689 lbs|
|MZFW (Max Zero Fuel Weight)||131,310 lbs||131,310 lbs|
|MTOW (Max Takeoff Weight)||174,170 lbs||174,170 lbs|
|MLW (Max Landing Weight)||146,275 lbs||146,275 lbs|
|Max Fuel Capacity||46,068 lbs||46,068 lbs|
So, as you can see, they are identical. The only difference between the two in Infinite Flight are the aircraft length and their liveries. Let’s look at the real life specifications.
Real Life 737-800 vs Real Life 737-900
|Max Passengers||189 Pass.||220 Pass.|
|OEW (Empty Weight)||90,710 lbs||93,680 lbs|
|MZFW (Max Zero Fuel Weight)||138,356 lbs||149,299 lbs|
|MTOW (Max Takeoff Weight)||174,200 lbs||174,200 lbs|
|MLW (Max Landing Weight)||146,275 lbs||157,299 lbs|
|Max Fuel Capacity||46,297 lbs||46,297 lbs|
Now, you can see that Infinite Flight got the MLW of the 737-800 perfectly, but the rest are close enough for my standards (except for the operating empty weight). Now, Infinite Flight’s 737-900 is far from realistic, here are the things that need to be done to it:
- Increase the aircraft PAX count by 31 more passengers
- Increase the OEW weight by 12,991 lbs
- Increase the MZFW (Max Weight − Max Fuel Capacity) by 17,989 lbs
- Increase the MLW by 11,024 lbs
Overall, the 737-900 could use a few more liveries, which can be used in different feature requests, and there could be an option for having split schimitars on different liveries that both do and do not have them.
