FCOM weights only in KG?

Recommended Posts

I've just spent 20 minutes looking through the FCOM for performance data and the only weights I could find are in KG, nothing in LBs...please tell me there are some charts for LBs somewhere... Ben

I think given that each section is a little over 100 pages, they compromised by alternating the unit of measurement in each section. Remember, they sell the printed version too and having metric and imperial tables for each would add about 550 pages, making it even more expensive. It would be nice, however, if there were two separate FCOM options; one for metric, one for imperial. As I fly the -800 90% of the time, LBS would be much nicer to look at.

I would assume that however the tables are presented is te same as the real Boeing manuals
