Topic: Maximum Takeoff Weight


  
  Maximum Take-Off Weight - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In aviation, the Maximum Take-Off Weight (or MTOW) is the maximum weight with which an aircraft is allowed to try to achieve flight.
It is one of the three "limiting design weights" with regards to aircraft performance, the others being the Maximum Zero-Fuel Weight and the Maximum Landing Weight.
MTOW calculations are all-inclusive, representing the sum of the weights of the airframe, fuel, cargo, and personnel.

 CESSNA CITATION
The climb limit is the maximum weight at a particular altitude and temperature, at which the aircraft can meet the FAR part 25 climb gradient requirements for takeoff (First, second, third and fourth) or for landing (Approach and balked landing climb).
The runway limit is the maximum weight at which the aircraft may takeoff from, in the case of the takeoff weight limit, or land on, the case of the landing weight limit, on a given runway at a specified temperature, altitude, and runway condition.
The maximum speed from which the aircraft may be stopped in the case of a rejected takeoff, (expressed in KIAS), or the maximum weight at which the aircraft may be landed and stopped with brakes without exceeding the capability of the brakes to dissipate the resulting heat without damage.

Maximum certificated takeoff weight means the maximum takeoff weight authorized by the terms of the aircraft airworthiness certificate.
This weight may be found in the airplane operating record or in the airplane flight manual that is incorporated by regulation into the airworthiness certificate.
Maximum payload capacity means the maximum certificated takeoff weight of an aircraft less the empty weight as defined in section 03 of part 241 of this chapter, less all justifiable aircraft equipment, and less the operating load (consisting of minimum fuel load, oil, flight crew, steward's supplies, etc.).
