Weighing and Balancing
1.

Reason for the Job


This procedure gives data to find the operating empty weight of the aircraft and to calculate the center of gravity.
NOTE :

2.

To get accurate results, we recommend to weigh the aircraft on a level area in a hangar with:
. the hangar doors and windows closed.
. the hangar heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems stopped.
Wind and air flows prevent accurate results.

Aircraft Maintenance Configuration


(1)

Do an IR alignment procedure (Ref. TASK 34-10-00-860-004-A).

(2)

Get access to the parameter call-up menus (Ref. TASK 31-36-00-740-008-A).

(3)

On the MCDU keypad enter the alpha call-up code into the scratchpad:
. PTCH for the pitch angle to do a check of the longitudinal alignment,
. ROLL for the roll angle to do a check of the transverse alignment.

Procedure

Leveling of the Aircraft


CAUTION :
(1)

Lift and level the aircraft (Ref. TASK 07-11-00-581-001-A).


NOTE :

(2)

Do not put the safety stay in position before you make the aircraft level.

Read the pitch and roll angles at the bottom of the display (scratchpad).
NOTE :

AES

YOU MUST NOT LIFT THE AIRCRAFT WITH THE SAFETY STAY.

Angle value:
. A positive degree value angle of the roll means that the right wing is down.
. A negative degree value angle of the roll means that the left wing is down.
. A positive degree value angle of the pitch means that the nose of the aicraft is up.
. A negative degree value angle of the pitch means that the nose of the aircraft is down.

(3)

Operate the hydraulic jack below the wing at rib 9 to get the transverse alignment.

(4)

Operate the hydraulic jack below the fuselage at FR8 to get the longitudinal alignment.

(5)

When you have done the longitudinal alignment, do a check of the transverse alignment.

(6)

The pitch and roll angles must be 0 plus or minus 0.8 degrees.

Put the Sighting Rods and the Sight Tube in Position


(1)

Put the sighting rods SIGHTING RODS SET (98D08103500000) (98D08103500106) and
(98D08103500107) at points 2L and 2R on the wing lower surface.

(2)

Put the sighting rods SIGHTING RODS SET (98D08103500000) (98D08103500101) and
(98D08103500102) at points 11 and 12 under the fuselage.

(3)
