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.
Figure 6-2. Typical helicopter CG envelopes. Lateral balance of an airplane is usually of little concern and is not normally calculated. But some helicopters, especially those equipped for hoist operations, are sensitive In order to determine whether or not a helicopter with the following specifications is within both longitudinal and lateral weight and balance limits, construct a chart like the one in Figure 6-3: Figure 6-3.
