MGTOW has not really caught on in real life, although David is attending a men's rights conference next year.
"MGTOW is not a direct reaction to feminism, it has been a catalyst.
The total empty weight of the airplane, plus fuel, oil, luggage, people and your iPad all add up to become MGTOW. Unless we load the air-craft above that weight limit before engine start, we should never actually take off at MGTOW.
An hour or so into our flight, the airplane can be significantly lighter--as a proportion of MGTOW than it was on the ramp.
Even at MGTOW, all Bonanzas--whether of the 33, 35 or 36 series--are certificated in the Utility category and rated to handle 4.4G.
Presume a Normal category airplane (limit load factor of 3.8 G) has a published [V.sub.A] of 135 KIAS at its MGTOW of 3800 1bs.
As the preceding highlights, the maneuvering speed ([V.sub.A]) published for most personal airplanes is only valid at MGTOW. But we never fly at that weight.
To do so, however, we need to know the airplane's [V.sub.S] (clean stalling speed) at various weights lower than MGTOW. Generally, [V.sub.s] is determined by the manufacturer during flight testing and only at MGTOW; we're on our own when trying to come up with Vs at lighter weights.
For the vast majority of the airplanes we fly, the range between [V.sub.S] at MGTOW and what we'll call basic operating weight (airplane, pilot and minimum fuel) is only a few knots.
