Narrative:
The crew were operating a flight from Jersey Airport to Funchal Airport in the Madeira Islands. Prior to departure, the commander had liased with the load controller and provided him with a Regulated Take-Off Weight (RTOW) of 57,600 kg, restricted by 'Field Length Requirement'. With the planned take-off fuel load of 11,000 kg, this required 15 bags to be removed from the aircraft to bring the weight within limits. The final load sheet indicated an actual take-off weight of 57,591 kg. After takeoff, which the flight crew considered uneventful, various ground personnel at Jersey Airport reported that the aircraft appeared to use almost all the runway for takeoff. Subsequent enquiries by the AAIB revealed that the ATC assistant on duty at the time considered that the aircraft appeared to rotate very late and used most of the runway for takeoff. However, the controller stated that the takeoff did not cause him concern. Nevertheless, the AAIB made further enquiries with the operating company to resolve the differing views.
The result was that, for takeoff, the aircraft was 993 kg heavier than the RTOW and the crew initiated rotation later than required.
