    Default Airport weight limits

    When an airport is rated at 24 single wheel or 48 double wheel, is that 48 tons or 48,000 pounds and is that for each wheel set or for total aircraft weight?

    It is in thousands of pounds (drop last 3 digits), per AC 150/5335-5B: https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/...50_5335_5B.pdf
