Refer to figure.
An aircraft is about to perform a domestic commercial flight with a capacity of 2 flight crew members and 10 passengers. The Pilot, as part of the pre-flight calculations, has to calculate the Traffic Load. Given the following information, the Traffic Load is:

Flight Crew: 2
Female pax: 3
Male pax: 2
Baggage: 6 pieces (total mass: 64 kg)
Hand baggage: 3 pieces
Standard mass value for flight crew member: 85 kg

• A
639 kg
• B
699 kg
• C
470 kg
• D
539 kg

Refer to figure.
Traffic Load is the total mass of passengers, baggage, cargo (or freight), including any non-revenue load.

For this question, the Traffic Load consists of 5 passengers and their baggage (6 pieces).

According to the figure, the standard mass values for the passengers of an aircraft having 19 or less passenger seating capacity, with 10 of them on board, are:

• Male: 92 kg
• Female: 74 kg

The hand baggage masses are included in the above standard mass values.

Therefore, the Traffic Load will be: 2 Male Passengers + 3 Female Passengers + Baggage = (2 x 92 kg) + (3 x 74 kg) + 64 kg = 470 kg.

NOTE:
Standard masses for passengers include hand baggage.
