Answer: D

The crew of a transport aeroplane prepares a flight using the following data:; – Dry operating mass: 90 000 kg; – Block fuel: 30 000 kg; – Taxi fuel: 800 kg; – Maximum take-off mass: 145 000 kg; The traffic load available for this flight is:

A: 25 800 kg
B: 25 000 kg
C: 55 000 kg
D: 55 800 kg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: A

145 000 – 90 000 – 29 200 = 25 800
the key is in “Block Fuel”
Block fuel = Weight of total amount of fuel on board before starting taxi.
… 30 000(block) – 800 (taxi) = 29 200 (trip fuel)
