CFI Tools Weight and Balance
PURPOSE: The Weight & Balance App is used to save weight & balance information in a simple format for easy reference.
When you fly many airplanes it can be difficult to keep track of the weight & balance for each one. But of course it is critical to perform these calculations before each flight and to verify the results.
The iPhone is a terrific platform for keeping this information.
This App makes it simple to maintain this information for a fleet of training airplanes or even for a single airplane.
Check out the screenshots to see how simple this process can be.
The W&B data is fully customizable. You can enter the specific data for your airplane. There is no limit on the number of stations.
You can create an airplane using a generic version of one of several popular GA aircraft including Cessna, Cirrus, Piper and Diamond.
The CG can be plotted in inches, as in the Cessna, or in moment as in the Diamond.
The CG is plotted with both full and empty fuel so you can see the range of CG's that may be experienced during the flight.
Also shown is the "Excess Capacity" - the difference between current weight and Max Gross. This is a number I often need to know if a student wants to bring a passenger along for the flight.
The Moment Arms and the Envelope are fully updatable and can be customized to fit your airplane's numbers.
CAUTION! Please consult your Pilot's Operating Handbook or Approved Flight Manual for complete Weight & Balance Information
DO NOT! rely on the generic W&B information provided here.
About CFI Tools
I'm a Pilot and a CFI. I build these iPhone apps and other software for my own use.
Some other pilots saw them and said "Hey you should sell those".
So here they are for sale. I hope you enjoy them. Any suggestions for improvement or new apps are always welcomed. Have a good flight.
