SJM created the topic: Example correctin - pg 140 - performance e-text
I believe there is an error in the Example flow chart on page 141 of the Performance e-text
On page 140, the minimum fuel is correctly calculated at 206kg resulting in a MTOW 2836kg (see below)
On page 141, the example continues to determine the maximum cargo possible. So here, the MTOW has changed to 2843kg (it should be 2836) and the all fuel at T/O is shown as 213 (it should be 206) As a result the maximum cargo is 'wrong' due to the incorrect values.
The reason is probably because the older 15% variable fuel is used rather than the new 10%.
