Preflight Determination of Passengers' Weight in Civil Aviation

This system and method provide accurate determination of a passenger’s weight to an airline prior to flight. This allows for fuel consumption saving, increases revenues of freight loading, and improves crew and aircraft performance in diverse emergencies. The system processes passengers’ weight prior to flight to control their sitting distribution/location and determine the desired center of gravity.

Passengers’ weight information can be electronically transferred (via Internet/travel offices, etc). Small changes within an airline’s existing weight and balance software will allow for overall preflight preparation and in-flight performance optimization. In-flight, when a passenger’s actual weight is lower than the predicted average, alternative freight or mail could be carried by the airline, allowing increased profit.
