Jetstar A320-232 MTOW

Hi,

Can anyone help please with the MTOW for the Jetstar A320-232s (or the weights if there are several weight variants)

I've got the Jetstar AOC, which shows only the aircraft type, registrations, and serial number; and tried the CASA website registration search which has the same information. Does anyone know a place in the Australian system where the actual aircraft MTOW can be found? The A320-200 has at least 4 manufacturer's weight variants that I know of.

Cheers

You should try......

Looking in the AFM, which should be on the aircraft. Make sure it's the right Ser. No. for the A/C and it'll tell you all the mass limitations.....

I think !!

You can find it at The Civil Aircraft Register at www.casa.gov.au

However it is interesting to note that the MTOW on the CASA register of 73,500 kg does not match the actual MTOW of 77,000kg which is used by airline in practice

Thanks John Citizen; I've now downloaded the full register and have found the weights. As you say, the A320-232s are all registered as 73,500 kg MTOW - some of the registrations are VH-VQA to VH-VQZ.

So the gap between registered MTOW and actual or AFM MTOW is elusively there. Thanks to the others who pointed to the more likely weights. wirelock - here are some MSNs: 2587, 2573, 2515 if you pass close by the SRM

I know some of the European LCCs move the MTOW weight around pretty freely so as to fit with routes and landing fees. I'm sure it is all being done in a formalised and approved fashion, here and there

hello,
as per revision nov 01/09 the MTOW of these aircraft are 73.5.
there is an SRM note that the certified MTOW at time of delivery is still valid as per this revision.this would change in the next revision if jetstar have offically changed the MTOW
jetstar could have a part 21 approved organisation to issue SB for MTOW change.
the highest WV of this model(covered by SRM) is 15 which has a MTOW of 78T.
hope this helps

I can tell you all 100% that Jetstar's A320's MTOW is 77000kg (max Ramp weight is 77400kg). This is the case for all Jetstar's A320s. What they are certified as re airport charges, I have no idea!

Hope that helps!
