Payload of aircraft Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Payload = Zero fuel weight-Operating empty weight
Wpay = WZF-WOE
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Payload - (Measured in Kilogram) - Payload of a passenger aircraft is the total weight of cargo plus additional passengers being carried in the airplane.
Zero fuel weight - (Measured in Kilogram) - Zero fuel weight (ZFW) is the weight of the aircraft with payload on board and empty fuel tanks.
Operating empty weight - (Measured in Kilogram) - Operating empty weight is the sum of the empty weight and the crew plus their baggage.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Zero fuel weight: 16756 Kilogram --> 16756 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Operating empty weight: 453 Kilogram --> 453 Kilogram No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Wpay = WZF-WOE --> 16756-453
Evaluating ... ...
Wpay = 16303
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
16303 Kilogram --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
16303 Kilogram <-- Payload

FAQ

What is Payload of aircraft?
Payload of aircraft is the weight of the load that you carry in aircraft for remuneration, like passengers, their luggage and/or cargo or the mass that is taken by an airplane, excluding fuel and is represented as Wpay = WZF-WOE or Payload = Zero fuel weight-Operating empty weight. Zero fuel weight (ZFW) is the weight of the aircraft with payload on board and empty fuel tanks & Operating empty weight is the sum of the empty weight and the crew plus their baggage.
How to calculate Payload of aircraft?
Payload of aircraft is the weight of the load that you carry in aircraft for remuneration, like passengers, their luggage and/or cargo or the mass that is taken by an airplane, excluding fuel is calculated using Payload = Zero fuel weight-Operating empty weight. To calculate Payload of aircraft, you need Zero fuel weight (WZF) & Operating empty weight (WOE). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Zero fuel weight & Operating empty weight and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate Payload?
In this formula, Payload uses Zero fuel weight & Operating empty weight. We can use 2 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • Payload = Desired Takeoff Weight of aircraft-Operating empty weight-Fuel load
  • Payload = Maximum take off weight-Operating empty weight-Fuel load
