The captain decided to load an extra 120 kg of fuel before the take-off:

Take-off fuel: 910 Kg
Trip fuel: 730 Kg
Zero Fuel Weight (ZFW): 3 230 kg
Maximum Landing Weight (MLW): 3 860 kg
Maximum Take-off Weight (MTOW): 4 290 kg

  • A
    Proceed to an hold to lose 30 kg to be able to complete the landing.
  • B
    The take-off is NOT possible under this condition.
  • C
    No need to hold, there's no operational impact.
  • D
    Proceed to an hold to lose 120 kg to be able to complete the landing.
To solve this question, the maximum possible Extra Fuel which can be uplifted must be calculated:
Note: MZFM does not limit fuel.

=> ATOM = ZFW + Take Off fuel = 3 230 kg + 910 kg = 4 140 kg

BASED ON MTOW:
  • MTOM – (ATOM) = 4 290 kg - 4 140 kg = 150 kg

BASED ON MLW:
  • LM = ATOM - Trip fuel = 4 140 kg - 730 kg = 3 410 kg
  • MLW – Landing mass = 3 860 kg - 3 410 kg = 450 kg
=> The maximum possible Extra Fuel which can be uplifted is 150 kg. Therefore, 120 kg can be loaded without operational impact.
