TopSkills Video - Managing Weight and Balance. Load and balance your aircraft properly for safest flights. Improper loading diminishes performance and causes difficult and impossible simulations. Overweight and imbalance are worsened by weather conditions that diminish performance. Learn official weight/balance regulations. Know your aircraft's empty and maximum take-off weights and maximum fuel and load weights. Spread it evenly through the aircraft. Know weights of fuel per gallon. Learn about center of gravity and CG range. Adapt to fuel-weight reduction during flight. Based on FSX and can be applied to other simulators. Duration 8:53 minutes. For home flight simulation by TopSkills.
