Is Current Weight of Aircraft available?

Recommended Posts

Hi John,

I hope you’re rested after Christmas and New Year.

I don’t have access to my flight sim computer at present. In the list of available offsets for P3Dv5 is there one for the current weight of the aircraft?

If so what calculations are required to turn it into pounds? I want to perform some fuel burn calculations and knowing the exact weight of the aircraft would be very helpful.

Hi Ray,

as well as the total load weight/mass offsets mentioned by Luke, there are the total quantity fuel offsets:

1264 4 Fuel: total quantity in gallons (32-bit integer) Ok-SimC No
1268 4 Fuel: selected quantity in gallons (32-bit integer) Ok-SimC No
126C 4 Fuel: total quantity weight in pounds (32-bit integer) Ok-SimC No
1270 4 Estimated fuel flow at cruise, in pounds per hour (32-bit integer) Ok-SimC No

...and best wishes for the New Year to you both.
