I was scouring over the internet and found some technical data on the Cessna 402C. It shows the max baggage weights for specific locations on the airplane...
Avionics Bay……..……… 250 Lbs (less installed equipment)
Nose Compartment...... 350 Lbs (less installed equipment)
Aft Cabin “A” shelf…..... 100 Lbs (50 Lbs per side)
Aft Cabin “B” shelf…..... 400 Lbs (200 Lbs per side)
Wing Lockers…………… 200 Lbs or 120 short locker (per side)
My question is, is the avionics bay and nose compartment all in the nose? Are the two compartments separated or do they just invisibly separate the the two?
As for the Aft cabin A and B shelf. What exactly does that mean? From pictures I've seen of the 402C, if you have an 8 seat interior there isn't any space in the back to put bags is there?
Has anybody worked for an airline like Cape Air or loaded a 402? How many bags or cargo do you think you can actually fit in that nose area just considering it's size?
Thanks in advance.
