Weight and Balance

Recommended Posts

Please forgive me if this has been brought up before...When using the Load Utility I have noticed that it gives all stations the same position, i.e. -48.350Does the sim accurately translate the W&B data as regards to flight configuration? If so, then surely the aircraft would be somewhat unbalanced with this set of numbers.station_load.0=1080.0, -48.350, 0.000, 1.050station_load.1=20160.0, -48.350, 0.000, 1.050station_load.2=4026.0, -48.350, 0.000, 1.050station_load.3=8250.0, -48.350, 0.000, 1.050With this in mind, could somebody explain to me how FS reads the W&B data, as the Forward and Aft limits as stated seem to bear no resemblance to the Empty CG :empty_weight_CG_position=-48.170, 0.000, 0.000CG_forward_limit=0.133CG_aft_limit=0.330and finally..... would using ACLoader create a realistic or an unrealistic W&B effect?? for instance:empty_weight=83000max_gross_weight=153500station_load.0= " 430.00, -9.73, 0, -2.12, COCKPIT: Flight Crew and their stuff"station_load.1= " 181.00, -13.73, 0, -2.12, Fore (1) Attend"station_load.2= " 362.00, -93.73, 0, -2.12, Aft (2) Attend"station_load.3= " 0.00, -13.73, 0, -2.12, Galley"station_load.4= " 820.00, -18.73, 0, -2.12, First (4 ppl)"station_load.5= " 205.00, -23.73, 0, -2.12, First (1 per)"station_load.6= "1230.00, -28.73, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.7= "1230.00, -31.89, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.8= "1230.00, -35.05, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.9= "1025.00, -38.20, 0, -2.12, Econ (5 ppl)"station_load.10="1230.00, -41.36, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.11=" 615.00, -44.52, 0, -2.12, Econ (3 ppl)"station_load.12="1230.00, -47.68, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.13="1230.00, -50.84, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.14="1230.00, -53.99, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.15="1230.00, -57.15, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.16="1025.00, -60.31, 0, -2.12, Econ (5 ppl)"station_load.17="1230.00, -63.47, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.18=" 205.00, -66.62, 0, -2.12, Econ (1 per)"station_load.19="1230.00, -69.78, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.20=" 820.00, -72.94, 0, -2.12, Econ (4 ppl)"station_load.21="1230.00, -76.10, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.22="1230.00, -79.26, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.23="1230.00, -82.41, 0, -2.12, Econ (6 ppl)"station_load.24=" 615.00, -85.57, 0, -2.12, Econ (3 ppl)"station_load.25=" 0.00, -93.73, 0, -2.12, Galley"station_load.26="3008.00, -27.73, 0, -2.12, Fore Cargo/Baggage Hold"station_load.27="5812.00, -74.73, 0, -2.12, Aft Cargo/Baggage Hold"max_number_of_stations=32empty_weight_CG_position=-51.93,0,-2.12 // (feet) length,side,upempty_weight_pitch_MOI=1912585.5 // was 1821510.000empty_weight_roll_MOI=1482117 // was 1411540.000empty_weight_yaw_MOI=1594819.8 // was 1518876.000empty_weight_coupled_MOI=230.000reference_datum_position=52.73,0,2.12Any answers are welcomed... ;-)Steve MRetired Dispatcher, Load Controller and general dogsbody :-)

Steve,not sure how FS implements W&B. To be super accurate you would need an AHM50 and to tailor the data from this to FS and the airfile.Mark, Current Load Controller.
