Wife wants me to take the mother in law and fam for a flight. So after running some numbers I said I could take 480lbs max. She kept asking if that includes me or not. I was trying to explain useful load, fuel, pilot weight, etc. but it wasn’t coming through. So I said don’t worry about any of that, the plane isn’t going anywhere without fuel or me so that leaves 480lbs for useless load :lol:

Therefore useless load is how much the plane can take after the useful load has been accounted for.

Well, at least you have me beat in cubic feet. With full fuel, I can carry 477 lb in my C. When I can make it all fit . . . . .

I assume that’s not with full tanks, don’t you have LR tanks?
