Rather a technical question here I'm afraid, but I wonder if any of you guys know the answer?
Quote from the http://www.boeing.com/assocproducts/aircompat/acaps/7772sec7.pdf
"The ACN/PCN system (Section 7.9) as referenced in ICAO Annex 14, "Aerodromes," First Edition, July 1990, provides a standardized international airplane/pavement rating system replacing the various S, T, TT, LCN, AUW, ISWL, etc., rating systems used throughout the world."
The ACN/PCN may have replace the older systems in ICAO's eyes but they're still alive and well in some parts of the world.
I'm familiar with the ACN/PCN system, the LCG system, and to some extent the LCN system.
But I'm really confused where an airfield still just lists Maximum AUW (all up weight in x1000Kgs) dependant upon type of undercarriage assembly. (This applies most of the airfields in the USA)
The only reference I have decodes the following codes:
S = Single Wheel
T = Twin Wheel
B = Bogie
DB = Double Bogie
But I'm coming across codes such as AUW100S/190D/360DT/550TRT/850DDT
Can anyone decode the following for me?
p.s. which of the codes above would a B777-200 come under?
