You didn't maintain underestimated weight is rarely a problem you flat out said underestimated weight is not going to be a problem. That is 100% false. You are wrong. Then what you're saying about elevators is just as ignorant. You assume that every elevator is in pristine condition. It very expensive to replace an elevator if something goes with it so they are almost always repaired on site. Years of maintenance maybe shoddy maintenance on elevators... If you see a jammed back full elevator and just go oh well don't worry it can hold twice this weight...That is such ignorance. Go find someone who works on elevators and ask them what they think. I can guarantee you they will not recommend getting into a full elevator bud, i am an engineer who has worked in the airline industry. Control systems is what i specialize on and as such, overloading is not an issue unless you fly mickey-mouse carriers. When i said overloading is never the problem, i meant overloading an aircraft is never the problem TODAY. Ofcourse, one extra can of beer = overloading for the Wright brother's puddle jumper.
