I have been struggling to plan my flights lately due to the way Simbrief calculates payloads by default. From what I understand, Simbrief automatically assumes every passenger weighs 175lbs, and assumes every passenger carries 55lbs of cargo with them, for a total of 230lbs per passenger.
As someone who works in the airline industry, I can immediately point out a couple of things wrong with this, such as the fact that only about half of passengers (from what I have seen at least) carry 55lbs of baggage with them. In fact, a large portion of passengers only bring carry-ons weighing at most 20lbs.
I would like to enter custom average passenger and freight weights so that Simbrief does not overload my plane, but currently in order to do that I need to make a custom airframe for every aircraft in my hangar, and then spend the extra time to find the custom airframes when I am making a flight. I would like to have an option to override the Simbrief default average weights so that I can use the default profiles while also not having Simbrief think all 50 passengers on my 30-minute flight are bringing their entire house with them.
On that note, thanks for supporting such a useful program for the sim community.
