Calculations seem off? Check your numbers, then double check.
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.
If you possibly received incorrect numbers from previous work, it could cause the final calculation to be incorrect. If you feel YOUR numbers are right, make sure the numbers you “inherited” from previous work is accurate.
WEIGHT / CG RANGE:
Maximum (Allowable) Weight: the Aircraft Manual will be the source for this figure.
Calculation: Maximum (Allowable) Weight, less Empty Weight, must equal Useful Load, mathematically.
AS RECEIVED: (Typically, “As Received” means someone else weighed the aircraft, before you received it)
Previous Weight and Balance Date: This date is always before you received it.
Empty Weight: This number comes from the last document or report as W&B Calculations.
Useful Load: Maximum Weight – Empty Weight = Useful Load
Empty Weight x CG (Arm) = Moment
REVISIONS: (What has been removed, and what has been added.)
Moment + Moment Column Totals = New Moment
When you remove an item, be sure to include the minus (-) sign before the numbers.
The Moment will be auto-calculated, after you have added the Weight and Arm, then click Save.
NEW: (In this section, all numbers are auto-calculated.)
Choose either As Calculated or As Weighed, click SAVE.
Here’s a great W&B reference video, from AeroGuard:
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.
