PA-23-350F Aztec F Weight and Balance Calculator
By Alicia Sikes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A weight and balance calculator for the Piper Aztec F PA-250F-350. Tabs are available for Passenger and Cargo Only configurations. Entries for both inboard and outboard fuel tanks are available.
This app is verified for ONLY the Aztec F! The Aztec F with tip tanks, and the Aztec F Turbo/tips will have separate apps. This app is NOT verified for any other Aztec or Apache.
Enter the weight (in pounds) for each position in the aircraft, and the amount of fuel (in gallons), and the calculator will let you know if you are out of limits on weight or CG. The forward and aft CG limits are calculated using formula derived from the aircraft limit chart. Correct cargo and bag loading is verified.
If proposed fuel burn is entered (in gallons), a landing CG check is performed. Burn for both the inboard and outboard tanks should be entered. Proper cargo loading positions are also checked- overloads give alert messages and are flagged.
Bonus material! A quick reference for the aircraft V-speeds and other interesting aircraft specific numbers
Where do I start describing how bad a purchase This was.
Has anyone ever used this to load an airplane or am I the first. The first time I used it I expected to have 6 adult men and about 75 pounds of baggage on board. Taking off with full gas tanks was not going to be possible.
As I tried different combinations of seating arrangement, fuel loads, and baggage I had to acknowledge 3 to 4 alarms each time I made a change.
Next issue. I noticed that many of your weight and balance programs are cheaper than this one. As a result I expected that this one must have some extra features. It doesn't. How about a page that depicts where the CG and weight are in the flight envelop.
Next issue. My plane has extended range tanks. This app doesn't have an option to make the change.
Basic but works
I bought this to double check my w&b for my pa23-250 STOL Aztec. Display pages ARE the app. Don't expect more just the math added. It was fine... Don't know what other reviewers issue was, my guess is that they did not enter basic airplane weight and arm, and that is why it was out of CG. It took me a minute to figure out too... Fair price but no sizzle!
