Weight & Balance HandBook

The Aircraft Weight and Balance Handbook has been prepared in recognition of the importance of weight and balance
technology in conducting safe and efficient flight. The objective of this handbook is twofold: to provide the airframe and
powerplant mechanic (A&P) with the method of determining the empty weight and empty weight center of gravity (EWCG)
of an aircraft and to furnish the flight crew with information on loading and operating the aircraft to ensure its weight is
within the allowable limit and the center of gravity (CG) is within the allowable range.
