10 / 20

Given:

Basic Empty Mass: 1799 lb
Pilot + Passenger: 300 lb
Cargo: 350 lb, Ramp Fuel ( Block Fuel): 60 Gal
Trip Fuel: 35 Gal
Taxi Fuel: 1.7 Gal
Final Reserve Fuel: 18 Gal
Fuel density: 6 lb/Gal

What is the expected landing mass?

  • A
    2557 lb
  • B
    2472 lb
  • C
    2589 lb
  • D
    2599 lb

Takeoff fuel volume = block off fuel — taxi fuel = 60 — 1.7 = 58.3 US Gallon

Takeoff fuel mass = Volume x density = 58.3 x 6 = 350 lb
Trip fuel mass = 35 x 6 = 210 lb
Landing fuel = takeoff fuel — trip fuel = 350 — 210 = 140 lb

Landing mass = BEM + Pilot & Passenger + Cargo + Landing fuel
Landing mass = 1799 + 300 + 350 + 140 = 2589 lb
