AIRCRAFT WEIGHINGINTRODUCTION
 
Aircraft Handling And MaintenanceProcedures and InspectionsTopic 7.16.1 Aircraft Weight andBalance
,respect from all pilots and particular diligence by all aircraft maintenanceengineers.Excessive weight reduces the efficiency of an aircraft and the safety marginavailable if an emergency condition should arise.Most modern aircraft are so designed that if all seats are occupied, all baggageallowed is carried, and all of the fuel tanks are full, the aircraft will be grosslyoverloaded.This type of design requires the pilot to give great consideration to therequirements of the trip.If maximum range is required, occupants or baggage must be left behind.If the maximum load must be carried, the range, dictated by the amount of fuel onboard, must be reduced.

 alterations that change an aircraft’s weight and balance.This in turn changes the way an aircraft’s weight must be effectively distributed,
 
as well as its flight characteristics.It is the responsibility of the aircraft maintenance engineer who makes a repair or alteration to change the aircraft weight and balance paperwork.This paperwork must reflect the new computations for weight and balance, and.This information then allows the pilot to make an informed decision as to the.

WEIGHT AND BALANCE THEORY
 
Aircraft Handling And MaintenanceProcedures and InspectionsTopic 7.16.1 Aircraft Weight andBalance
.The total weight of the aircraft must be NO greater than the maximumweight allowed by the aircraft’s Type Certificate.
 
The Center of Gravity (CG), or the point at which all of the weight of theaircraft is said to be concentrated, must be maintained within the allowablerange.An aircraft must be weighed to determine the Basic Empty Weight and the.To be able to determine the CG a predetermined reference point, from whereall measurements of len th are taken must be set. 
 
This reference point, set by the aircraft manufacturer, is called the ‘Datum’.,datum is used for all measurements used in the CG calculation for that aircraft.

The datum may be located anywherethe manufacturer chooses.It is often the leading edge of the wingor some specific distance from aneasil identified location.One popular location is a specifieddistance forward of the aircraft.This datum point is measured fromthe nose of the aircraft, or the leading,firewall. center of the rotor mast or located atthe nose or a specified distance
