marius Posted May 1, 2016 Share Posted May 1, 2016 I'm a student doing a paper design of an aircraft to be launched from a C-130J at 15,000 ft and am trying work out a weight and balance for the aircraft...but I'm not finding a terrible amount of information to do it with (e.g., basic weight/arm, crew arm, fuel arm, etc.). Also, as I'm looking into it, I'm seeing some contradictory things, such as the load planning chart in the 2015 DTR III-V-17 (http://www.ustranscom.mil/dtr/part-iii/dtr_part_iii_app_v.pdf) shows a DD form 2130-2 for C-130 models E/H/J (the picture on the form says B/E/H, but the caption for the form notes E/H/J...I'm believing the caption for now) wherein the ramp starts around station 749, whereas the Lockheed specs on this website for the J model say load station 1022. What's the difference? Or is can the DTR reference only be applied to earlier models of the aircraft? I'm just not sure. Long and short of this is this: does anyone have some basic weight and balance info (i.e., basic weight/arm, crew arm, fuel arm) and some direction for what I can do with the stations this load planning form? Any help is appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
