PAY LOAD

1. If the details of an aircraft from M to N are given below. No fuel is available at N Distance M to N Average TAS Wind component M to N Average fuel flow Fuel reserve (assume unused) Ac weight less fuel & pay load Max T/O weight at M Max T/O weight at N Max Landing weight at N Max Landing weight at M Find a. Max pay load from M to N b. Max pay load from N to M 750nm 380K 30 K HW 5700 kg/hr 500 kg f 52000 kg 91000kg 88000 kg 77500 kg 75000 kg

2. Max takeoff weight Max landing weight Flight fuel Reserve fuel Empty weight Find a. Pay load

45000 lbs 40000 lbs 4000 lbs 800 lbs 25000 lbs

b. Can you carry additional reserve fuel without affecting pay load, if so how mcy

3. From P to Q (where fuel is not available) & return to P maximum pay load is to be off loaded at Q & maximum pay load is to be uplifted from P. the data given is: Distance P to Q (Weight no fuel) & payload Max landing weight Max takeoff weight Reserve fuel unused 610 nm 36500 kg 52400 kg 63000 kg 4000 kg

Additional fuel for each flight 500 kg (R/O circuit landing etc) Mean fuel consumption Mean ground speed P to Q Mean ground speed Q to P Find a. Fuel to be up lifted at P b. Maximum pay load P to Q c. Maximum pay load Q to P 1350 kg / hr 240 k 280 k

4. Maximum takeoff weight Maximum landing weight Basic operating weight Flight fuel Reserve fuel

82000 lbs 64500 lbs 50000 lbs 16000 lbs 1500 lbs

Find the pay load that can be carried

5. An ac is to fly from A to B Max T/O weight Max weight without fuel & pay load Fuel requirements a. For flight A to B b. Reserve fuel 82000 lbs 50000 lbs 64000 lbs 16000 lbs 8000 lbs

If the aircraft lands at B after having consumed 500 lbs of reserve fuel what is the maximum pay load that can be carried

6. In aircraft to fly A to B Max permissible takeoff weight Max weight without fuel and payload Max permissible landing weight Fuel required a. For flight from A to B b. Reserve 16000 lbs 3000 lbs 82000 lbs 50000 lbs 69000 lbs

What is the max payload that can be carried? Is it possible to carry additional reserve fuel without affecting the pay load?

7.

A flight is to be made from M to N and return to M carrying max. pay load in each direction. Fuel is not available at N Given : Distance to M to N Mean ground speed M to N Mean ground speed N to M Mean fuel consumption Max takeoff wt at M 80 NM 70 K 110 K 410 kg / hr 6180 kg

Max landing wt at N Max take-off wt at N Max landing wt at M Max zero fuel wt Aircraft wt less fuel and pay loads Reserve fuel (assume not used) Calculate:

5740 kg 5800 kg 5460 kg 5180 kg 4400 kg 250 kg

a. Max pay load which can be carried from M to N b. Max pay load which can be carried from N to M

8. Max T/O weight RTOW Max Landing weight Max Zero fuel weight APS Weight Trip Fuel Reserve Fuel Find the pay load that can be carried

51.00 Tons 50.00 Tons 43.25 Tons 39.10 Tons 27.50 Tons 4.2 Tons 1.00 Ton

9. Max takeoff weight Maximum landing weight Basic weight TAS Track W/V Distance Fuel consumption

Reserve fuel Find the pay load that can be carried

3500 lbs

10. Max T/O weight Max landing weight Max Zero fuel weight A/C weight without fuel & pay load Fuel cons Distance Reserve fuel TAS Find: a. max pay load in still air

55000 kg 52000 kg 38000 kg 29000 kg 1600 kg/hr 1500 nm 2750 kg 260 K

b. max pay load with a head wind of 90 K
