Re: Cessna Mustang BEW data

Here are those two screen shots I hard trouble loading previously, showing my W&B app. These are links to my Dropbox account. Hawker 850: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ble3va9w1onm9z/Hawker850.jpg?dl=0 Citation V: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nikytgbtibgz4wp/Citation%205.jpg?dl=0

Re: Cessna Mustang BEW data

Yes Indeed I did find that before I posted. But I also need the (BEW) CG and Moment. That's what I can't find.

Re: Cessna Mustang BEW data

Yes, most (probably all) jet aircraft use %MAC. Any aircraft can use it, but aircraft smaller than jets usually do not use %MAC.

Re: Cessna Mustang BEW data

Yeah, I might have to call Cessna next week. Loadmaster...that would be for big cargo aircraft, right? You work for UPS or FedEx or are in the Air Force? I'm attaching a screen shot of my weight and balance app for business jets. One is for the Hawker 850 (which has a very complex weight and balance...

Cessna Mustang BEW data

I'm building a weight and balance app and need an example of what the Basic Empty Weight (BEW), CG and Moment would be for a typical Cessna Mustang biz jet?

Thank you...

Hawker850XP Sample Wt and Balance

I’m trying to do a sample weight and balance exercise but I can’t find anything online about typical BEW, CG and Moment numbers to start off with. I have the AFM and the POH but neither give typical BEW numbers (BEW, CG, mom). I’d also like to see a seating chart so I know how many seats and what th...

Re: Hawker 850 XP Weight and Balance

I finally found the defination in the Hawker AFM (I guess I just missed it before).

Minimum Operating Weight
The minimum weight at which the gust criteria for structural
integrity has been shown. Flight operations will not be
conducted below this weight.

Re: Hawker 850 XP Weight and Balance

One other questions if I may (rather than start a new thread): I see that the Hawker 850 XP has a Minimum Operating Weight limit. But I saw no definition of this term. I'm guessing this weight limit means one cannot operate the aircraft below that weight at any time? The reason I make that seemingly...

Hawker 850 XP Weight and Balance

I was reading through the Hawker 850 XP AFM, specifically the weight and balance section. There is a Zone A in the upper right corner of the CG envelope that states "Usable only with ventral tank fuel". I don't understand that statement? Does that mean if you have ventral tank fuel that yo...

Re: How to calculate fwdMac and aftMac

Yes I forgot to post the fwd CG (181") and aft CG (196.4").

I found the formula:
Distance aft of LEMAC x 100/MAC == %MAC

How to calculate fwdMac and aftMac

I did some weight and balance work for the Citation II and V business jets. Their AFM's provided me with all of the percent of mac info I needed: LEMAC = 261.56 MAC = 80.98 fwdMac = 18% aftMac = 30% Now I'm doing the same thing for the King Air B200 but it's POH does not provide the fwdMac or the af...

ILS 13 KHUT Question

I have a question about how to identify SPELT waypoint on the KHUT ILS for runway 13?

The only way I see is to use GPS but this is not a GPS approach. I don’t see a way to ID it using the loc or vor.

Thanks...

Re: Memphis ILS 27 Question

>Also, can someone clarify something for me here. 18R has its own ILS/LOC and RNAV. Why would anyone even need to be on the 27 LOC for a Circle to Land for 18R

The answer is because we were on a training flight and wanted to do a circle to land approach.

The PIC was flying an ILS.

We were flying a biz jet so yes, we had dual VORs.

Re: Memphis ILS 27 Question

1. Yes. 2. IPEPE is not a part of the ILS approach. On the profile view the asterisk next to IPEPE at 980 sends you to a note that says "LOC ONLY." Lastly, your verbiage of "When the runway came into view, I called the tower and we were cleared to circle right and do a visual landing...

Memphis ILS 27 Question

I have a question about the KMEM (Memphis) ILS 27 approach. It has to do with IPEPE way point. I was recently flying this approach as an SIC on a Citation II. We were flying a LOC approach to runway 27 with circle to land to 18R. When the runway came into view, I called the tower and we were cleared...
