Weight and Balance Theory

Two elements are vital in the weight and balance considerations of an aircraft.

  • The total weight of the aircraft must be no greater than the maximum weight allowed by the FAA for the particular make and model of the aircraft.

  • The center of gravity, or the point at which all of the weight of the aircraft is considered to be concentrated, must be maintained within the allowable range for the operational weight of the aircraft.
