Our aircraft perform well and when operated as per the manufacturers specifications can not be beat for the job they do. A primary goal of our company is to provide safe transportation to and from the fly in camps we operate. To keep every one honest and the aircraft within its operating limits loads are weighed before flight. Everything including the “carry-ons” is weighed. If you bring too much stuff, don’t blame me when loads are adjusted and you can’t get all your must have items on board with you.
I guess the alternative, if the load is to heavy, is to fly the important gear and leave a passenger or two behind.
Just a friendly reminder, the aircraft or I don’t care that it all went last year or that the “other” operator managed it, the aircraft can only carry so much.
And please don’t tell me that old joke about getting 100 yards further than last year again.
