Weight and balance is
one of the most important factors affecting safety of flight. An
overweight aircraft, or one whose center of gravity is outside the
allowable limits, is inefficient and dangerous to fly. The
responsibility for proper weight and balance control begins with the
engineers and designers and extends to the pilot who operates and the
aviation maintenance technician who maintains the aircraft.
This book explains in detail the process to determine the weight and
balance of any aircraft. This new edition, effective March 2007, has
been updated to include information on new Light Sport Aircraft (LSA)
and Very Light Jet (VLJ) categories. Applicable to both airplanes and
helicopters, this book is a primary reference for all FAA Knowledge
Exams for both pilots and mechanics.
Soft cover, 8-3/8" x 10-7/8", glossary, indexed, full-color, 96 pages.
