I had a mass and balance problem in my cpl conversion exam. I don't really know the contents of the sum. I can give whatever I remember from it. I don't know how to solve it. I don't have figures to any of them.. I just need to know how to solve it. Or if anyone has problems with the same question asked, it would really help.
Given : max zero fuel weight
Max take off weight
Dry operating weight
Max landing weight
Traffic load
Contingency fuel
Reserve fuel and alternate fuel
FIND THE LANDING MASS AT THE ALTERNATE?


Thank you

Hi

Check this link out for some sample questions:

Mass Limit Calculations

You need to calculate your takeoff mass i.e. DOW + Traffic Load + All the fuel required except taxi fuel.

To get the landing mass at your destination:

Takeoff mass - Trip fuel

i.e. fuel you will burn during the flight from your departure to destination.


To get the landing mass at your alternate:

Takeoff mass - Fuel burned till your alternate.
