    Does the Concorde have any basic fuel and weight simulation? Concorde would perform quite differently depending on the weight, for example with a full load it would take 40 seconds from opening the throttles until rotation at 190+ knots. At these weights, after the noise abatement procedure the initial climb had to be quite carefully managed. At lower weights for training or charter flights, it really would perform like a rocket, with the takeoff roll taking less that 20 seconds.
