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!
