If you read my thread on the “Heavy jet cutoff” you wouldn’t have said “delta heavies.” B752s are not heavies. B763s are.


#3

I believe all the 757s are an exception to the “heavy” weight rules due to their wake turbulence.


#4

Are you trying to say that all 757’s are considered heavy? Because they aren’t.


#5

See faa.gov/Atpubs/ATC/Chp5/atc0505.html

For all intents and purposes, it’s treated as a heavy, and I’ve heard them called heavy more times that I can count.


#6

I’ve heard them called heavy myself, but they seem to be in this area between heavy and medium, where they sporadically get the heavy label.


#7

Regardless of the label, they definitely are treated as a heavy consistently and regardless of anything else.
