In the Eastern Africa and throughout the world, people fly every place every day. Air travel is widespread—there’s no doubt about it. Commercial airline companies fly millions of passengers on tens of thousands of aircrafts day in and day out.
In general, the weight of one person or one piece of luggage is of little consequence to the operation of a commercial jet, especially because commercial airlines have developed statistical information to estimate the average weights of passengers and additional cargo on planes. Statistics are used to determine safe weight loads for airplanes and specific trips, and safety margins are built into the values produced.
Large jets can have passenger capacities ranging between 60 and 400 passengers and these planes carry the vast majority of commercial traffic. Increases in fuel costs have caused airlines to rely on hub networks to reduce the number of flights they have. Many flights that come into main hubs are satisfied by smaller regional aircrafts. Airlines are substituting bigger planes with smaller aircraft in as many routes as possible, because larger jets consume higher amounts of fuel. Small aircraft typically have 20 to 45 seats.
A new type of service has emerged called Air Taxis. This service has become popular recently and the purpose of it is to provide air services for less popular routes. Air Taxis are used on a supply and demand basis. It’s typical for Air Taxis to have only 5 to 8 available passenger seats.
The statistical information airline companies use to monitor the weights of massive jets is one thing, but the information is not always useful for small aircraft. The statistical model used to measure airplanes must offer a high level of certainty that planes are capable of carrying their loads and the aircraft will have enough fuel to get them wherever they’re going. If there are only 5 passengers on an Air Taxi, then it does not make sense to assume the total weight of the passengers is near the average weight of passengers normally on the aircraft. There is a possibility that all 5 passengers are well above the average weight. Therefore, it would only be safe to design the flight parameters based on this assumption.
To maximize the benefit of every individual flight, it’s useful to know the correct weight of each passenger and their luggage. If the 5 passengers were equal to the statistical average weight, then it is possible to carry more cargo or reduce the amount of fuel loaded on the plane, achieving better fuel economy.
