Simbrief CG

On the 321 I notice that the CG when creating the flightplan via simbrief is far forward. It always is between 18 and 24%. Is there a way to change this as in real life you would want the CG to be far more towards the rear for better fuel economy and performance.

I load load the fligytplan via init request and load the cargo via the AOC (and gsx)

and I might add I never had this problem in the 320/319 using the same loading technique

with the A321 and even the A319, the CG is always above 30%

I know that, that’s why I’m asking. Never got more than 24% MAC in the 321, 320 worked like a Charme. Should be way aft. Is there a way to change it? I noticed that the baggage of the pax is in one cargo compartment instead of evenly distributed

I don't know I use simbrief, don't why the fslabs doesn't try to "neutrlize the CG", but you can then do it manually

Well, than this autobalancing is failing for me somehow :D Take off trim is always around UP2.0.  I will provide screenshots when doing my next flight.

You appear to be very light for an a321 so compensation via cargo isn’t effective. I did a flight between heathrow and Amsterdam which I had a ZFW of 71.1 tonnes. That was 218 pax and 800 cargo totaling 21757 kg of payload.

Well Lufthansa only has 200 seats. I got 170 pax at 84kg each. But I think I know what causes it. I have simbrief set to 84kg per passenger. But i forgot to add the weight of their baggage. In the next leg I will report back if that actually solves it

Planespotters say 205. Seatguru says 192 which is less reliable I think. And Lufthansa website says 200.

Yes, but LH also counts the blocked middle seat in Business Class as one seat (the light grey one without a cross) . On a normal flight with full Business Class around 190 passengers would fit as a maximum. I think the amount of Business Class seats can easily be changed before the flights as there is mostly no difference between Eco and Business, at least on Lufthansa‘s A320-Family fleet. So they can adjust there capacity pretty good.

The logic targets a MACTOW of 30%.

re-set the simbrief passenger weight to 104kg (default value), now it is working again. TOCG around 27%.

Hate to revive this-but in the A321, I’ve definitely got this issue consistently when I fly my 200 pax limited A321 and my SB pax are at 230lb (84kg)  

 

TOCG was 23.8% for me and usually is in that range in the A321.  I do all my stuff via SB/FSLabs link 

I’ve attached a pic of the release, Loadsheet and load out in payload (after an hour of flight) as well as the
