How much DOES a plane weigh?
The answer to this isn’t so simple. Different aircraft have differing weight points, however the reason behind knowing it is much easier question to answer!
An aircraft’s performance is based largely on it’s weight, not to mention it’s safety when taking off. Greater weight means a lower angle of climb, speed of climb and the speed at which it can land. Knowing the weight before and after fuel is critical for a safe journey.
