- Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:03 pm #535447 Are runway weight limits a strict number than cannot be exceeded? The reason I am asking is because I noticed this aircraft https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N324CH landing at KHRO which has a posted weight limit of 84000lbs double tandem https://www.airnav.com/airport/KHRO. Even at its lightest weight a 737BBJ would be over this limit by nearly 10000lbs. The reason I am asking is because I usually try to be realistic in the flight sim world and adhere to these limits when the information is available.

Sometimes there are procedures already laid out, sometimes they have to be made. I'm guessing these situations warrant some cents on top of the normal landing fees.
