So the Echo has say, operating weight of 1979kg moment index of469.4 … the question goes on to give me row 1, row 2, row 3, wing, rear compartment, and then also tells me that the minimum fuel required for the flight is 140kg.I can use 5 kg hard ballast if I need to, and I’m asked to find minimum weight of ballast fuel that is required in the main tanks.
The info about the fuel… that, in this instance is not really info I needed to know… is just something nice they have told me…
