Weight and Balance Report
Previous Top Next

When you press "Weight and Balance" this windows opens. In this version, we have put together the Weight and Balance Report with the Fuel Report, since many times, we have to trade payload for fuel in order not to exceed the maximum take off weight.


Most of it should be self explanatory.

Double click on the Weight column to set the weight of the pilot, copilot, baggage, etc. By default you will have the weights set in the aircraft configuration. After you change the values, if you want to go back to the default values you can click in the button bar "load default values".

You can set the fuel in the column, or you can move the slide control in the middle of the screen. You can move the slider from all the way to the left ( 0 fuel ) to all the way to the right (100 % of maximum capacity) in the example above, 279 liters. Remember you can change the measure units in the "Setup menu".

When you move the slider, the take off is re-calculated and the weights are displayed in the chart. Check that the points are within the envelope.

If you exceed the maximum take off weight you can select less fuel. Then check the box below to make sure that the endurance at the alternative is at least 30 or 45 minutes.

Be aware that the wind conditions that you put when you made the flight plan have been used in the calculation.
