Presentation Transcript

  1. Weight and Balance

  2. If not Handled: Extreme Cases

  3. Less extreme cases • Higher take off speed, • Longer take off run, • Reduced rate and angle of climb, • Lower maximum altitude, • Shorter range, • Reduced cruising speed, • Reduced maneuverability, • Higher stalling speed, • Higher approach and landing speed, • Longer landing roll, • Excessive weight on the nose wheel or tail wheel Loading is not limited to weight only. Attention must be paid to the location of the center of gravity.

  4. Back to Basics

  5. Moments Moment = F x d d F

  6. Center of gravity location affects flight • Limits certified by manufacturer • Control: if CG is too far backward • Stability: if CG is too far forward Safety

  7. CG too far FWD: Heavy Nose

  8. CG too far RWD: Heavy Tail

  9. Manufacturers put together easy ways to help load correctly

  10. CG Moment Envelope
