CRJ-200 station loading

Recommended Posts

[/p]CRJ-200 interior station loading [/p] [/p]The following is a `clip' from the CFG file of the Gmax CRJ-200 model. It's usual for the `empty weight' parameter found in the `stock' CFG file to include a full passenger and baggage load (see table below). This is similar to the ZFW (Zero Fuel Weight). The reason is so that flight characteristics will resemble a normal aircraft WITHOUT the user having to add interior loads.

The longitudinal coordinates are an assumption until an actual seating diagram can be reviewed. Then, the lon_coordinates will be accurate as will the row spacing. This loading method also improves MOI characteristics as opposed to a single `concentrated load' at the CoG.

Greg, this forum is not the appropriate place to bandy about your modifications to POSKY's FDE's. If you cannot work out an accomodation with POSKY on your suggested modifications, and POSKY claims that you are in violation of the copyright in doing so, AVSIM refuses to be put in the middle of this squabble. Please cease and desist positing these modes on AVSIM.
