FAA publication H-8083-1B: 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 -1B edition 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.

Topics include:

  • Weight and Balance Control
  • Weight and Balance Theory
  • Weighing the Aircraft and Determining the Empty Weight Center of Gravity
  • Light Sport Aircraft Weight and Balance Control CG
  • Single-Engine Aircraft Weight and Balance Computations
  • Multiengine Aircraft Weight and Balance Computations
  • Center of Gravity Change After a Repair or Alteration
  • Weight and Balance Control for Helicopter
