Bae 146-100 seat bug
« on: June 08, 2021, 08:05:08 AM »
Hi, Not sure if this has already been spotted. Couldnt see a ticket.

But the 146-100 says max capacity of 94 but the config tool only allows 83?

Thanks

What sort of configuration you are attempting? And any warning or error msg?

Hi Sami,

This seems to be an issue with all the 146's.

-200 says max should be 112 but payload range says 108

-300 says max should be 116 but payload range says 115

and payload range graph on the -100 only shows a max of 83.

No error message or warning just a limit on how many seats can be chosen.

Thanks

It seems that it's a bit misleading marketing from BAe, since the aircraft's payload capability is the limiting factor here. One simply cannot put 94 seats into the plane since it would exceed the maximum certified payload.

In past years the calculated mass for a standard passenger might have been less or a marketing man has made it look better, but with the formula used here that's the reason for this difference and thus not really a bug.

Would have to look up for the actual source of the max certified capacity for these variants to see if that matches. A brochure shows a "typical" 6-abreast config with 31" pitch as 84/100/110 for -100/-200/-300.
