OBJECTIVES SPECIFIED:
2 PILOTS, EACH PILOT WEIGHING A MINIMUM OF 100 KG
12 PASSENGERS WITH LUGGAGE; EACH WEIGHING 120KG
2 CREW EACH WEIGHING 80KG
GREAT CIRCLE RANGE OF 2500NM
ASSUMPTIONS:
Since we did not have a model to test in a wind tunnel, a number of parameters have been assumedfrom other production business jets. These parameters are1)Zero lift drag – Cdo2)Horizontal and vertical tail sizing for a 12 seater business jet3)Zero lift from fuselage and engines4)In places where data on Turbo-fan engines are absent, we have assumed the data for Turbo- prop engines.- 1 --

Also, we have used the Raymer’s approach to design this aircraft. Thus a number of empirical relationshave been used for estimations of parameters such as1)Fudge factors for tubed steel2)Ratio of empty weight to take off weight3)Empennage weight and wing weight estimations
INITIAL WEIGHT ESTIMATIONS:
For a twin turbo prop aircraft it is seen that the We / Wo = 0.59Wo = takeoff weightWe = empty weight- 2 --

Thus the equations areWe / Wo = 0.59 (1)Wo We = Wpayload + Wfuel (2)The fuel fraction for business jets ranges from 0.25 to 0.4Wf/Wo = 0.3 (3)W
= Crew + Pilots + Passengers = (80*2) + (100*2) + (120*12) = 1800kgWo = Wpayload / (1 – We/Wo – Wf/Wo)= 1800/(1 - 0.59 - 0.3) = 16363 kg (4)
