Basler BT67 (DC3T)

Post by MikeC » Sun Jul 19, 2020 8:54 am

The aircraft data figures for the Basler are a little confusing in that MZFW, MTOW and MLW are all given as 13026kg. This means that as soon as fuel is loaded the aircraft is over the MLW. The Basler web site (https://www.baslerturbo.com/power-and-performance.html) gives the MTOW figure of 30000pounds (13612kg) - can the MTOW figure be amended please?

I have also noticed that when I adjust the payload figure (via the client) to bring the MLW back to within limits when I then fly the client shows the current weight as it was before adjustment.

Hope this all makes sense.

This was a case where MTWO, MLW and MZFW were all the same, which gives the pilot maximum flexibility, but usually means the pilot will also have to reduce the payload when its time to fly as the system usually tries to load the aircraft up to MZFW.

But based on the information on that Basler page I updated the weights.
