Pilots of two-crew aircraft are expected to use and interpret loading and performance charts and tables applicable to two-crew aeroplanes. Applicants should review charts such as takeoff performance charts, cruise performance charts, buffet boundary charts, descent charts, landing performance charts and aircraft loading charts. Pilots must understand how weight, altitude, configuration and environmental factors affect aircraft performance.
