Weight and Balance Revision Issues

Weight and Balance Revision Issues?

Calculations seems off?

Check your numbers, then double check.

Every section of the form requires data to be entered into the fields.  The only section that does not require hand-typed data is the NEW section, at the very bottom of the Form.

The bottom section, title “NEW” is where the automatic calculations occur.

Pay particular attention:  Maximum Allowable Weight, less Empty Weight, must equal Useful Load, mathematically.

If you possibly received incorrect numbers from previous work, it could cause the final calculation to also be incorrect.  If you feel YOUR numbers are right, make sure the numbers you “inherited” from previous work is accurate.

If the calculations aren’t working out, double check all your hand typed-numbers, in every field.  It’s likely that they might need adjusting.

We had a customer call to say the calculations weren’t working, but they were.  One of his math equations in the “As Received” section was incorrect.  After fixing the numbers, all calculations were correct.

Here’s a great reference guide, from AeroGuard:

FAA Moving Database

FAA Moving AD Databases Aug. 16

The FAA is decommissioning several Airworthiness Directives databases Aug. 16, 2022, in the Regulatory Guidance Library, including:

  • Emergency Airworthiness Directives (EAD)
  • Airworthiness Directives (AD)
  • Airworthiness Directives: Biweekly (AD Biweekly)

After Aug. 16, the AD documents will only be available on the newly developed Dynamic Regulatory System (DRS).

FAA officials note that PDF tutorial guides for the new system are available if you contact them via email at 9-AVS-AIR-Regulatory-and-Guidance-Library@FAA.gov.

You can subscribe to receive notifications about published ADs and EADs by navigating to the FAA GovDelivery Service. If you are already subscribed to notifications, you don’t have to take any other action, FAA officials reported.

Additionally, the FAA will continue to mail copies of the AD Biweekly, which is a paid subscription of all ADs issued in the Federal Register over the previous two-week period, officials noted.
