I have created an airplane w&b profile using actual numbers recorded in the POH.


For some reason when I try to calculate W&B is not calculating correctly.

Thanks for your post! We're always happy to help.

We just need to make one small tweak to your aircraft profile: The empty moment field should contain the empty weight multiplied by the empty arm (1632lbs x 87.97in = 143,567.04 lbs-in). So, just return to your aircraft profile page and enter 143567.04 into the Empty Moment field.

We've had a few members have a little trouble with the Empty Moment, as different POH's will list it in different ways (sometimes in inches, sometimes divided by 1000, etc). However, I ran some test calculations and I believe that will correct the issue.

Let us know if we can help further!

Unable to adjust the empty weight of the aircraft using the app or the website. Is this a function of the grade of membership?

Hi Stacey,

Yes, the ability to manage the Weight & Balance details for your aircraft is an iFlightPlanner Premium function. The 30-day free trial that you receive by creating an account using iFlightPlanner for iPad will not allow you to get to the Weight & Balance tab when editing your aircraft profile at https://www.iflightplanner.com/My/Aircraft - an oversight on our part that we're working to remedy.

Expect an email from us on how to make those changes!

Best,
Andy
