S C Olson: 88. Survey of Average Passenger Weights. 1953.



On February 15, 1946 the C.A.A. issued Safety Regulation Release No. 198 covering the initial establishment of the average passenger weight presently being used, namely the 165-pound winter weight and 160-pound summer weight. These values were based on statistical data obtained from various sources which had shown that the general average of personal weights was considerably lower than the 170-pound weight used as the computing standard at the time.
