No more than there gross weight

Posted on Nov 20, 2017

    An aircraft has a basic weight and a max gross weight. The difference is what an aircraft can carry is maximum load. Normally you need a pilot or two and fuel for flight those weights are added to the basic weight to become known as operating weight. Operating weight subtracted from the max gross weight will get you to a maximum cargo and or passenger weight. The operating weight varies greatly on mission and regulatory fuel requirements affecting allowable load. Aircraft manufacturers usually go with the highest load possible when advertising their aircraft.

Is there a speed limit for airplanes?


There are some speed limits for certain types of airspace. Airliners are always in contact with air traffic control and in order to keep the required separation of aircraft sometimes the controllers will ask the pilot to maintain an airspeed. More than likely you experienced a slowdown while your plane was beginning an approach, During approach controllers have to maintain specific spacing between aircraft and often must slow them down behind slower aircraft. Your plane very likely was slowing down from approx 570 knots to 250 knots or less for the approach.

What are some limitations on airplane flaps?


Usually it is airspeed of the aircraft. Each aircraft has different airspeed requirements for operation the flaps or landing gear. Usually that speed is determined by the airframe manufacturers and the design of the flap system component. You could built it strong enough to handle any airspeed, but a plane can only carry so much weight. If you built everything to work without any limitations you might have an airplane too heavy to fly. Designing a plane is a balance between lifting capability and weight. Both of these are important design parameters.

Why no whole-plane parachute system on commercial flights?


Aircraft too heavy. Weight is extremely valuable/expensive and the weight of a parachute system would be too heavy and costly, sacrificing room for paying passengers.
