    777 Cargo loading

    If you are looking for real world values to represent passenger and baggage weights, my operation utilizes 160 pounds for an adult pax in the winter, and 155 in the summer. Children are 70 pounds. Baggage weights are 40 pounds per bag. The multiplier for bags per pax is typically about 1.2. Cargo weights obviously fluctuate drastically, fuel load, cargo bookings, and volume play a large role in that.
  2. Hopefully We'll see it at ORD in the near future. Nice work.
  3. Hah - roger. I take it your as much of an IAD nut as I am an ORD one..
  4. Begging the question there... What did you do.... Take the Blackbird for a spin in the pattern?
  5. The PMDG OEW weights were taken from real flying A/C. As Kyle specified, weights vary by airline and by aircraft. I can attest to that statement; just did a search for the OEW on a 77W, and it says 370,000. My W&B calculations for one of our aircraft yesterday utilized an OEW of 390,600. In the end, that is the figure that counts.

    Got it. I've heard of Hadoop being mentioned before, but I haven't yet gotten around to learning that, or any of the other side-packages (another one called Shiny). I've picked up R in an effort to move away from SPSS,

    Hey Kyle... what type of coding do you do in R? I use the R language daily for stats analyses. Pretty surprised to see R get mentioned here on AVSIM. But perhaps there is a larger following than I had originally suspected.
