Weight & Balance Tutorial

STEP 1

Select “New” from the configuration tab and input aircraft specific parameters for computing weight and balance. If your aircraft doesn’t specify a “Max Zero Fuel Wt” or “Max Landing Wt” enter the aircraft max takeoff weight.

STEP 2

“Fuel Type” may be entered as AVGAS, JET-A or Pounds. Specify the “Main Tank Title” and “Aux Title” as you would like them to appear on the “Loading” tab.

STEP 3

Select “Add Weight/Balance Ranges”, starting with the minimum weight for utility then normal. View the “Chart” tab and compare to the aircraft POH for accuracy.

STEP 4

Select “Add Weight/Balance Station Limitations” per the aircraft POH, labeling each one. The labels are used to define the “Station Limitations” in the next step.

STEP 5

Enter station limitations per the aircraft POH. Enter the text for each station exactly as it appears in the previous step for each “Weight and Balance Station”. Use the signs in the example below with each station or station combination.

STEP 6

Multiple aircraft can be configured and saved then selected using the left or right arrows on the “Loading” tab. Enter values for each defined station to generate the weight and balance.

STEP 7

The status of the values entered for each station are compared to the parameters from the “Config” tab to generate a status report. The weight and balance can be shared via Email.

STEP 8

Select the “Chart” tab for a visual depiction of the current aircraft weight and balance calculation. The high end of the chart depicts current configuration. The low end of the chart assumes zero fuel.
