FliteS20 is a loadsheet application for the Saab 2000 Twin Turboprop Regional Aircraft. 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.


FliteS20 1.


Here you insert the passenger figures and the cargo loading.


FliteS20 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.


FliteS20 3.


Besides the textual envelope check, the graphical representation assists you in interpreting the result.
FliteS20 indicates the resulting pitch trim values 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.


FliteS20 4.


This page precisely describes the result of the current loading configuration and gives hints on how to resolve an out-of-envelope situation. FliteS20 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.


FliteS20 5.


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


FliteS20 6.


The rough estimate form is used during the preflight planning phase to check the underload regarding the MZFM, the RTOM/MTOM and the RLM/MLM.




Note that, for liability reasons, FliteS20 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 1.4 Application renamed and reworked.
2004 Feb 05 1.3 IDE migration, high-density bitmaps added. 'Min Fuel' on rough estimate form now depends on fuel burn. Estimated T/O and LDG mass guesses on rough estimate form for performance considerations introduced.
2002 Nov 28 1.2 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 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 Sep 07 1.1 Beta test consolidation.
2002 Jun 25 1.0 Initial.
