Description:
Weight and balance, two of the most important factors affecting flight safety, are thoroughly discussed in this official FAA handbook. Indispensable for those responsible for aircraft weight distribution - the engineers, designers, pilots, and aviation maintenance technicians - this guide clearly explains how to correctly determine the weight and center of gravity for any type of aircraft, including the new light-sport aircraft (LSA) and very light jet (VLJ) categories.
