757 Typical MAC % Numbers

Mon Aug 07, 2006 12:30 am

Hi All,

Does anyone recall what is a typical MAC percent for a full loaded 757 aircraft, pax version and/or cargo version; and how many units of trim are needed for TO ?

Thank you

Tom

MAC can vary from 13 to 30% when fully loaded
the trim units are 6.75 and 3.75 respectively

these are affcourse the limits for take off, I don't think a plane will fly like that
Aircraft flown: B733, B734, B736, B737, B738, B744, B752, B763, B772, A319, A320, A321, A343, A346, Do328, CRJ7, E190

Hi,
I checked few charter flights from HEL to mediterranean destinations.
They had pax onboard between 190-220, and TOW was between 93-96 tons. ZF MAC was between 20-24%, TO MAC between 23-26% and trim units between 3.7-4.1 degrees.
Hope this helps you.

As far as loading the B757 plan bags in aft compartment 3 first. Depending on the type of flight and passenger load very often near all the baggage will fit into 3.
After that plan compartment 4 and 2, but this is somewhat dependant if you have a 2-class aircraft aircraft or an all economy aircraft. If all economy than having all baggage in 3&4 and forward compartments empty will work.

MAC is the Mean Aerodynamic Chord. It will not vary no matter how the airplane is loaded.

What you all are describing is the CG position in terms of % MAC.

Yes, that's it. I guess we all in this thread know that, so use the adopted common expression "% MAC" instead of the proper one. Anyway, thank you for pointing out the difference  Smile
