Weight and balance

Hey!

I have a weight and balance manual, and I just don't understand why the cabin section has an upper and a lower part. The manual show the example to fill up the upper part, and that is straightforward. But when do you fill the lower part as well?

The second section is for another destination, eg a two stop flight. DUB-SNN-JFK
SNN Deadload would be on top, JFK would be bottom. they would then be totalled beneath.

the shaded grey area is the same data but is the make-up of a telex message harking back to the days when messages were sent manually.

But why do you cumulate the data? When you take off, just the passengers who are sitting on the plane take an effect on the balance, but not that passengers who get off from airplane at previous stop .

We are developing an EFB application and in our application pilot have to fill up a brand new empty report for each flight even if it is part of a multi-stop flight. So I just don't understand how did it work with this old fashion report? Why pilot were not just pick a new form / statement when number of passengers changed.

?
maybe we come to RTFQ problem here
Data are not cumulated but separated
(on your graph not shown, but would be if you read Davey post )

Thay are separated and sent to DEST so people there know what to unload and from where.
Data are cumulated on bottom for first flight ( both pax, cgo and mail etc ) so you can have correct weight and balance calculated...

For second flight you would have SECOND graph, without "offloaded cgo pax etc)
