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.

Search ADs by Keyword

Would you like to be able to search every AD with a specific keyword?

Now you can, in just a few simple steps:

LOGIN to the AD Toolbox.

1. On the LEFT panel, click AD & TCD Search.

2. Click Single AD Search.

3. Click Search by Keyword.

4. Type in your keyword(s):

Note:  When running any type of search, we often say “LESS is MORE”.  So for example; if you’re looking for “Wing Strut Corrosion”, just type in “Wing Strut”.  Another example is if you’re looking for a plural word, type it in singular instead, for example:  plural “Seat Rails” could be searched for as singular “Seat Rail” and you might get more results to look through.

5. Click the Search button:

6. Scroll through the Results list, and click on the AD Number to view the text:

7. The AD will contain the same word(s) that were in your search:

8. Click the Print View button to print the AD.

To go more in depth, we’d like to remind you to first run your initial KEYWORD SEARCH.  If you get a long list of results, you can always use the FILTER SEARCH to narrow down the results.

The FILTER search is typically located at the upper right hand corner of  your Search results list:

So for example, in the Keyword, you could type wing.

A long list of results will appear.  You can narrow that list down by typing spar into the filter search box.
