Maximum Take-Off Mass

The maximum takeoff mass also known as maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of an aircraft is the maximum mass at which the pilot of the aircraft is allowed to attempt to take off, due to structural or other limits.

This mass is absolute and does not vary with atmospheric conditions, flap settings or anything else.
