FliteERJ is a loadsheet application for the Embraer 145 Regional Jet. It helps to improve the economic result of any flight by giving a quick and great hand concerning through tankage and ballast requirements considerations.
The program is embedded into the FliteLX environment.


FliteERJ 1.


Here you insert the passenger figures and the cargo loading.
The baggage mass can be entered either directly or through standard masses.


FliteERJ 2.


The aircraft tail number as well as the pantry code can be selected from a list.
Note that the red value in the example shows an out-of-envelope situation.


FliteERJ 3.


Besides the textual envelope check, the graphical representation assists you in interpreting the result.
FliteERJ indicates the resulting MACTOW and pitch trim as well as the actual underload.
The light blue lines are the trend vectors showing the variation of the T/O point with different cargo and fuel values.


FliteERJ 4.


This page precisely describes the result of the current loading configuration and gives hints on how to resolve an out-of-envelope situation. FliteERJ supports row blocking.

As an implementation detail, it first tries to reseat Y class passengers only. If this doesn't lead to success, it reseats as many Y rows as possible to achieve maximum index correction, and tries to correct the remaining index with C class rows blocking. -  The algorithm leads to a minimal number of blocked rows.


FliteERJ 5.


After having blocked the required rows by pressing the 'Block Rows' button on the previous page, the loadsheet satisfies all envelope constraints.


FliteERJ 6.


The rough estimate form is used to check the loading in a more general way, e.g. during the preflight planning phase while determining the additional fuel or any ballast requirements. The form displays the underload regarding ZF, T/O and LDG masses limitations, and indicates the allowed amount of fuel with the current configuration.
The minimum load is a representation of the respective table from the PIH.




Note that, for liability reasons, FliteERJ is not intended to be used for operational purposes. It backs up manually computed loadsheets and assists related decision-making, but must not be used as the sole mean for mass and balance calculations.




2005 Feb 15 3.3 Application renamed and reworked.
2004 Feb 05 3.2 IDE migration, high-density bitmaps added. New pantry codes. 'Min Fuel' on rough estimate form now depends on fuel burn. Estimated T/O and LDG mass guesses on rough estimate form introduced for performance considerations. New pantry codes.
2002 Dec 12 3.1 New T/O stabilizer settings implemented according PIH revision 08/2002.
2002 Nov 18 3.0 Alternative passenger masses and new crew masses implemented. Additional hint implemented on the 'Envelope Result' page denoting the benefit of the alternative passenger masses. New service index adjustment logic considering the number of baggage pieces. New pantry codes. New rough estimate form layout and functions. Observer and non-standard cabin crew separately listed on 'M&B' page. Support of incremental search feature for popup lists implemented.
2002 Mar 18 2.9 Maximum load in cargo compartment 1000..1100kg depending on number of trolleys (Crossair Flight Operations News 02/2002 p.16). Passenger class index breakdown and catering mass and index display. Hints for combining ballast and row blocking included. Tapping on a label selects the field's content instead of erasing it.
2002 Feb 20 2.8 Tapping on a label to clear the fields value possible throughout the whole application.Bar that displays the position of a point in respect to the envelope as well on 'M&B' page. Rough estimate underload check considering MLM.
