Weight and stability is a crucial point to the protection of flight. An obese plane, or one whose middle of gravity is outdoor the allowable limits, is inefficient and unsafe to fly. The accountability for correct weight and stability keep an eye on starts off with the engineers and architects, and extends to the pilot and mechanic who flies and keeps the airplane. This Federal Aviation management (FAA) booklet addresses this safety-crucial subject and in learning this instruction manual, pilots and Aviation upkeep Technicians (AMTs) will achieve the mandatory wisdom near to airplane weight and stability, in practise for the FAA wisdom examination in addition to secure flight and upkeep operations.

Basic airplane weight and stability regulate ideas and tactics for the training, and the particular weighing of an airplane commence the dialogue, together with the equipment of selecting the site of the empty weight heart of gravity. Loading computations with loading graphs and tables of weight and second indexes stick with, together with directions on deciding on the burden and heart of gravity alterations as a result of maintenance and changes or elimination and deploy of kit. Chapters are devoted to light-sport plane, single-engine airplane, multi-engine plane, and commuter and massive airplane, in addition to helicopter weight and stability regulate and choosing lateral CG. additionally integrated are examples of fixing weight and stability difficulties utilizing a handheld digital calculator, E6-B flight laptop, and a committed digital flight computer.

This 2016 version displays the newest aviation methods, gear, options, rules, and is a key reference within the FAA Airman Certification criteria (ACS). Illustrated all through with distinct, full-color drawings, and incorporates a thesaurus and index.

Example text

The weight and balance report must include an equipment list showing weights and moment arms of all required and optional items of equipment included in the certificated empty weight. When an aircraft has undergone extensive repair or major alteration, it should be reweighed and a new weight and balance record started. The A&P mechanic or the repairman responsible for the work must provide the pilot with current and accurate aircraft weight information and where the new EWCG is located. Equipment for Weighing There are two basic types of scales used to weigh aircraft: scales on which the aircraft is rolled so that the weight is taken at the wheels, and electronic load cells type where a pressure sensitive cell are placed between the aircraft jack and the jack pads on the aircraft.

Determine the CG location in inches from the datum before the cargo is removed. Do this by first determining the distance of the CG aft of the LEMAC: Refer to Figure 7-3. For all flap settings and a CG located at 8% MAC, the stabilizer setting is 73/4 Units ANU. indd 4 3/13/07 11:03:14 AM 2. Then, determine new CG in % MAC: 3. 1% MAC. Effects of Onloading Cargo The previous example showed the way the weight and CG changed when cargo was offloaded. This example shows the way both parameters change when cargo is onloaded.

Indd 4 3/13/07 10:46:36 AM Large Aircraft Chapter 7 Weight and Balance The following consists of general guidelines for the weighing procedures of airplanes weighing over 12,500 pounds. Also included are several examples of center of gravity determination for various operational aspects of these aircraft. Persons seeking approval for a weight and balance control program for aircraft operated under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 91, subpart K, or parts 121, 125, and 135 should consult with the Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) or Certificate Management Office (CMO) having jurisdiction in their area.
