Floor loading factors may have to be considered. How much freight must be added to hold arm 5 ft. To answer this type of question use the layout shown in the following examples and approach the problem in a logical manner remembering the total weight at ane time comprises the APS weight, the fuel and the traffic load.

Maximum take-off weight 36, lb. Insert at 56 and 7. Now complete the table to appear as Figure For Performance Class B aeroplanes, the CG position need not be mentioned on the mass and balance documentation if for example the load distribution is in accordance with a pre-calculated balance table or if it can be shown that for the planned operations a correct balance can be ensured, whatever the real load is.

Where it is necessary to use S.

Providing that the centre of gravity and the centre of pressure are not coincident a force couple will be set up by the lift and the weight forces, and this will result in a pitching moment, as shown at Figure The centre of gravity moves with changes in the distribution amss load and fuel.

The turning moment at any particular point can be determined by multiplying the weight the downward force by the arm the distance of that point from the fulcrum. In order to determine the weight and the arm of the basic aircraft, the first step is to determine the aircraft empty weight without fuel and payload by measuring the weight acting through each wheel on a small aircraft or through each jacking point on larger aircraft.

In some problems the oil is measured in quarts. As already discussed, the disposable load consists of the usable fuel and the traffic load. An amount of fuel carried to counter any disadvantage suffered because of unforecast adverse conditions. On occasions it is advantageous to carry more than the minimum fuel for a given sector. To distribute the load over a greater floor area and thus reduce the floor load a mechanical device known as a load spreader may be inserted between the load and the aircraft floor.


Columns shall also be provided for recording an example of a typical aircraft loading calculation. If any last minute change occurs after the completion of the mass and balance documentation, this must be brought to the attention of the Commander and the last minute change must be entered on the mass and balance documentation. Therefore any product combination of weight and arm which gives a moment of 16 m kg will suffice.

The required maxs moments, that is the moments which will result from a Aypl at ” and a total unchanged weight of lb.

List the factors that may limit the take-off weight. To discharge this commission the JAA periodically introduces legislation in the form of operating rules or regulations and minimum performance requirements, which are complementary. The effects of operating with the centre of gravity forward of the permitted forward limit include: The Joint Aviation Authority has the task of ensuring that all public transport aircraft, irrespective of size or number of engines, are operated to the highest possible level of safety.

It cannot be used for problems involving removing loads, using fuel ahpl adding loads or increasing the fuel on board. Distec Inc Donaldson Compa. A safely loaded aircraft is one in which the total weight of traffic load is equal to bbalance less than the maximum permissible traffic load for a given flight and the distribution of that traffic load is such that the centre of gravity of the laden aircraft lies within the fore and aft limits of centre of gravity which are permitted for mzss aircraft operating in the specified role.

Role equipment is that which is required to complete a specific tasks such as seats, anc and galley for the passenger role or roller convey or, lashing points and tie down equipment for the freight role. Maximum Structural Landing Weight. Subject to the approval of the Authority, an operator mzss use an alternative to the procedures required by paragraphs a and b above. The position through which all of the weight acts in a vertically downward direction is referred to as the Centre of Gravity CG.

The Total Weight of the aeroplane then comprises of the APS weight plus the Disposable Load, which is made up of the usable fuel and traffic load. Determine the change in the position of the Balace if 3, kg of load is moved from a hold 14 nalance aft of the datum to a hold 29 metres aft of the datum.


The moment of this force is equal to the product of the weight and the distance at which it is placed from the fulcrum. Separate fleets may be established, each with differing fleet mean masses. Take-off balnce 80, kgs; Traffic load 12, kgs; Usable fuel 10, kgs; Crew kgs. Straight line variation between the points given. The aft centre of gravity limit is the most rearward position at which the centre of gravity can be located for the most critical manoeuvre or operation.

Orion Orr-lac Oshino Lamps Am. Manual Load and Trim Sheets 7. Infants occupying separate passenger seats must be considered as children for the purpose of this sub-paragraph. To avoid getting lost in a mass of figures msas definitions, remember that the All Up Weight of an aircraft at any stage of flight consists of three elements: Crew Gear Crews Curtis Superior. Under certain circumstances, standard crew and passenger weights are assumed, otherwise the weight of each crew member must be determined by weighing.

This is the TOW as limited by the available field lengths and the prevailing meteorological conditions at the departure aerodrome. By creating an account at Pilots HQ LLC you will be able to shop faster, be up to date on an orders status, and keep track of the orders you have previously made.

For an aircraft to perform a particular role it may be necessary to fit additional equipment. If a weight is placed on one side of the seesaw it will impart an unbalancing force or turning moment about the fulcrum.

This restriction therefore requires that due consideration be given to the way in which the items loaded are orientated. The procedure specifying when to select actual or standard masses must be included in the Operations Manual. The position retracted or extended of the landing gear associated with this information shall be stated. Similarly, some light aircraft are certified in two categories, semi-aerobatic category CG envelope will be significantly narrower than the non-aerobatic CG envelope or utility, or normal category, the aft limit is likely to be especially restrictive.

If such is the case use the following method. The restraint factor for fixed wing aircraft is expressed in multiples of the force of gravity.
