French term or phrase: masses embarquables

"La puissance seuil est par exemple égale à la valeur minimale de puissance déclarée par le constructeur dans les tables de performances servant à l’équipage pour déterminer les masses embarquables."

Would "onboard masses" be incorrect here? I don't think that it conveys that the "mass" isn't in the aircraft (helicopter) in the first place, loadable maybe?...

Thank you for your time.
