Adjusting Payload

Recommended Posts

Hi all, what is a good value for a full load of passangers and baggage for airliners in FS9 under fuel and payload, I never touch my payload settings and only adjust my fuel. For example the Posky 767, 757, 747 series.....Thanks,Bill

I can't recall the FAA numbers, but I always use 190# per passenger (170# for the passenger and 20# for luggage). It also factors in the "wife variable" where the wife weighs 120# but travels with 70# of luggage for a weekend jaunt :)-John

If you had a 179 pound wife and an 82 pound two year old you'd look pretty skinny at 200 pounds:-hah

Sorry about the double post. When I started flying 25 years ago the average FAA weight for a male was 175# (180# in winter). Thanks McDonalds!John M
