MD-11 Empty Weight ?

Recommended Posts

For the purposes of flight planning in FSBuild2 and the MD-11 Load Manager, are the following formulas true?Pax Variants:Pax Weight + Cargo Weight = Total PayloadZFW - payload = empty weight (273373 lbs)Cargo Variants:ZFW - Cargo Weight (no pax) = empty weight (250996 lbs)If incorrect, does anyone know the empty weights for both variants? Thanks...

Thanks Karl,For the purposes of FSBuild2, I used 273373 lbs for the MD-11(GE)empty weight and got the TOGW within 53 lbs (pax variant) of the load-manager. So I think I'll use the above empty wieghts for the rough approximation of fuel required. In fact, the ZFW in both apps were identical, 381873 lbs.FSBUILD FLIGHT PLANFLT REL IFR LSZH-16/LEMD-18L MACH A/C MD11 W/ CF6-80C2D1F FUEL TIME CORR TOGWT LDGWT AVG W/CTAXI 001800 0015 . . . . 439820 408097 M002DEST LEMD 031723 0131 . . . .
