Emphasis has been given on providing the student with the basic physics knowledge required to be able to form the set of equations necessary to find the centre of gravity position.
From the book's contents: Masses, Centre of Gravity, Mean Aerodynamic Chord, Aircraft Mass Check, Floor Loads and Calculation of Traffic Load. The book has dedicated chapters for calculation of Mass and balance for:
- Small Aeroplane (the JAA generic aeroplane SEP1)
- Light Twin Aeroplane (the JAA generic aeroplane MEP1)
- Medium Range Twin Jet (the JAA generic aeroplane MRJTi)
Within the JAA countries SI units are supposed to be used. On the other hand, it Is common to use US units In aviation. In this book SI units are used as first choice and US units when it seems logical to do so.
