CORRECT WEIGHT?

Recommended Posts

I noticed a difference in weight(model 300 wheels):

1)the manual data:

Which in the end will the weights be correct?

 

DOW    7414lbs  -weight empty?

MZFW 62500

MTOW 12500

MLW    12055

Capacity:

PAX 20

Cargo 358kg?

Fuel  1379kg?

I'll make sure we'll correct the manual when we open this project for maintenance.

It all depends highly on the configuration of the aircraft. The flight model is based on an average of the many different weight tables we found.

I'm interested in DHC-6 300 configuration wheels:)

I compared a lot of official data on this model and found these weights:

The only thing I'm not sure is this MZFW, I can not find this data...

Tell me what kind of data do you have on the MZFW?

Again, I would not focus too much on these weights because pilots do not do so. As long as it is not overly heavy (and that differs between planes even of the same series, due to age of the engine, wing warping etc etc). I clearly remember talking to Twin Otter pilots about lift off speed. Most pilots only had a rough idea of at what speed the take-off with what weight. They spool up the turbines and lift of when the aircraft wants to fly.

 

I found some data here: http://aeronautics.wikidot.com/twin-otter-dhc6

But again it differs from other sources.
