Basic plane weight and stability regulate rules and systems for the coaching, and the particular weighing of an airplane begin the dialogue, together with the equipment of picking the positioning of the empty weight middle of gravity. Loading computations with loading graphs and tables of weight and second indexes keep on with, together with directions on choosing the load and heart of gravity adjustments because of upkeep and changes or elimination and set up of kit. Chapters are devoted to light-sport plane, single-engine airplane, multi-engine plane, and commuter and massive plane, in addition to helicopter weight and stability keep an eye on and picking lateral CG. additionally incorporated 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 variation displays the newest aviation methods, gear, suggestions, laws, and is a key reference within the FAA Airman Certification criteria (ACS). Illustrated all through with specified, full-color drawings, and features a thesaurus and index.

If the TCDS list an empty-weight CG range, and after the alteration is completed the EWCG falls within this range, then there is no need to compute a fore and aft check for adverse loading. But if the TCDS lists the EWCG range as “None” (and most of them do), a check must be made to determine whether or not it is possible by any combination of legal loading to cause the aircraft CG to move outside of either its forward or aft limits. Adverse-Loaded CG Checks Many modern aircraft have multiple rows of seats and often more than one baggage compartment.
The fuel is also behind the forward limit, so the minimum fuel is used. For weight and balance purposes, the minimum fuel is no more than the quantity needed for one-half-hour of operation at rated maximum continuous power. This is considered to be 1/12 gallon for each maximum except takeoff (METO) horsepower. Because aviation gasoline weighs 6 pounds per gallon, determine the number of pounds of the minimum fuel by dividing the METO horsepower by 2; in this example minimum fuel is 115 pounds. The front and rear seats and the baggage are all behind the forward CG limit, so no passengers or baggage are considered.
1. Stress plates must be installed under the jack pads if the manufacturer specifies them. 2. If anyone is required to be in the aircraft while it is being jacked, there must be no movement. 3. The jacks must be straight under the jack pads before beginning to raise the aircraft. 4. All jacks must be raised simultaneously and the safety devices are against the jack cylinder to prevent the aircraft tipping if any jack should lose pressure. Not all jacks have screw down collars, some use drop pins or friction locks.
