By Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)/Aviation Supplies & Academics (ASA)

Weight and stability is a vital point to the security of flight. An obese plane, or one whose heart of gravity is outdoors the allowable limits, is inefficient and hazardous to fly. The accountability for correct weight and stability keep watch over starts off with the engineers and architects, and extends to the pilot and mechanic who flies and continues the plane. This Federal Aviation management (FAA) ebook addresses this safety-crucial subject and in learning this instruction manual, pilots and Aviation upkeep Technicians (AMTs) will achieve the mandatory wisdom just about airplane weight and stability, in guidance for the FAA wisdom examination in addition to secure flight and upkeep operations.

Basic plane weight and stability keep watch over rules and approaches for the practise, and the particular weighing of an airplane commence the dialogue, together with the tools 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 deciding upon the load and heart of gravity alterations attributable to upkeep and changes or removing and deploy of apparatus. Chapters are devoted to light-sport airplane, single-engine plane, multi-engine plane, and commuter and massive plane, in addition to helicopter weight and stability regulate and identifying lateral CG. additionally incorporated are examples of fixing weight and stability difficulties utilizing a handheld digital calculator, E6-B flight desktop, and a committed digital flight computer.

This 2016 variation displays the most recent aviation methods, apparatus, suggestions, rules, and is a key reference within the FAA Airman Certification criteria (ACS). Illustrated all through with special, full-color drawings, and encompasses a word list and index.

Example text

Each revision record should be identified by the date, the aircraft make, model, and serial number. The pages should be signed by the person making the revision and his or her certificate type and number must be included. The computations for a weight and balance revision are included on a weight and balance revision form. The date those computations were made is shown in the upper right-hand corner of Figure 5-2. ” Appropriate fore-and-aft extreme loading conditions should be investigated and the computations shown.

Figure 3-27] Mechanical scales should be protected when they are not in use, and they must be periodically checked for accuracy by measuring a known weight. Electronic scales normally have a built-in calibration that allows them to be accurately zeroed before any load is applied. 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.
