Entering Passenger Names

If you simply add a weight to a load station, it’s treated as cargo by AvPlan EFB.  If you wish to add names and weights, the usual way is by tapping the ‘Persons on Board’ text….however there is a short-cut:

Tap Planning > Aircraft Loading/Weight and Balance/Fuel Planning.

Then, instead of tapping the green field, tap the middle of the load station.

Tapping this area will open up a second field directly below the original.  In this new line, enter the passenger name and their associated weight.  Once you’ve finished entering the name and weight, tap the return key.  The weight will then be entered in the load station, and also the figure in the Persons on Board field will be updated accordingly.

For subsequent passengers, repeat the above process in the empty line.  Again…Each time you enter a new passenger, the Persons on Board field will be updated accordingly.

Once you’ve entered your passengers using this method, when you print preview or print the Load Sheet (tap Planning > Print Preview Load Sheet), you’ll see individual passenger names and their associated weights listed.
