the right until intersecting the REFERENCE LINE.
Because the intersecting point on the reference line is
below the 4.1% baseline, maintain the same relative
distance between the guidelines and trace up until
intersecting the 4.1% baseline. From that point, trace
down to read the maximum allowable takeoff weight in
order to achieve a single engine climb gradient of
The maximum allowable takeoff weight to
achieve a 4.1% single engine climb gradient is 12,600
pounds. Enter that weight in the appropriate block on
the TOLD card.
(10) Maximum Allowable Takeoff Weight.
Enter the most restrictive weight from each column,
including the Max Wt For Req. SE CLB GRAD block,
in the appropriate space on the TOLD card. For Flaps
0% the weight is 12,400 pounds. For Flaps 40% the
weight is 11,800 pounds.
e. Completed TOLD (Back) and Decision
Making. Refer to Figure 7-2. The completed back
side of the TOLD card is now used for determining the
takeoff configuration (Flaps 0% or 40%) and the fuel
load in order to maintain the aircraft at the maximum
allowable weight for all of the conditions.
(1) For this example, the takeoff can be
accomplished at an aircraft weight of 12,400 pounds
with the flaps 0%, or 11,800 pounds with the Flaps at
40%. This takeoff is planned with Flaps 0% at 12,400
For this example, the aircraft Operating Weight is
8,900 pounds and the Load for the mission is 1,325
pounds therefore, the Zero Fuel Weight (Operating
Weight plus the Load) is 10,225 pounds. The takeoff
weight of 12,400 pounds minus the zero fuel weight of
10,225 pounds allows for 2,175 pounds of fuel for the

(2) Transpose the pertinent information to
the front side of the TOLD card and complete it for the
f. Performance Planning (Front of TOLD
Card). Refer to Figure 7-3. The front side of the
TOLD card is used to record the critical information for
conduct of the takeoff and, in the event of an
emergency during the takeoff, landing data for an
immediate return to the departure airport. The
instructions here are consistent with the ATM.
