800 Loading

Recommended Posts

Hi All!Would anyone kindly post their Load Manager configurations or ideas as to how much cargo each person should have etc. I don't think I've set up my Load Manager realistically, and as we are after 'As Real as it Gets', I'd appreciate if someone could tell me how I could achieve this in the loading department.Thanks for any info!Geoffrey BaleanCanberra, AU (YSCB)http://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

Hey Geoffrey,Don't know about real life but I've loaded my aircraft upto the gunwale's using the recommended distribution method for the cargo. If you wan't to work it out technically - on many carriers over here in the UK (where low cost is king) you are usually allowed between 15-25kg baggage per person.So using 20Kg as a happy medium:-600 123 all coach = 5423lbs (2460kg)-700 148 all coach = 6525lbs (2960kg)-800 175 all coach = 7716lbs (3500kg)-900 189 all coach = 8333lbs (3780kg)Distribution method:Series - Fwd Hold - Aft Hold 300/700 - 1/3 - 2/3400/800 - 0 - All500/600 - All - 0For the -900 I've used the same config as the -800 as they are closest size wise.I hope it helps :)CheersDavid

Geoffrey, At Virgin Blue (and VOZ Virtual) we use a standard baggage weight of 14kg per guest.The load distribution for is always 1/3 - 2/3 of the planned load. It doesn't always eventuate that way because we plan that each guest will have one bag each.The -800 has poor stability whilst on the ground and as such it is important to have the 1/3 of the load in the fwd hold. Conversely it is more beneficial in the air to have an aft CofG as it assists in fuel efficiency. It is always a balance between safety and stability on the ground and fuel efficiency in the air.http://www.vozvirtual.org/home/loadcontrol.pngIf you look at the image above (dispatch briefing from VOZ Virtual), you can see the kind of load distribution data that is important. There are three zones of seating (A, B and C) and 6 different cargo compartments (1a, 1b and 2 are in the fwd hold whilst 3, 4a and 4b are in the rear hold). Unfortunately the Load Manager doesn't allow us to get into that much detail for these aircraft.If you have any questions please let me know.RegardsSkip
