C.G. Calculation

C.G. position can be defined by means of the chart below. The pilot is responsible for ensuring the correct useful load loading.
Example:
  • A/C empty mass moment: 378 kgm
  • A/C empty mass: 790kg
  • Occ. front seats: 160kg
  • Occ. rear seats: 140kg
  • Fuel: 72kg
  • Baggage: 18kg
  • A/C T.O. weight: 1180kg

Fuel Calculation

For all flights, a fuel calculation must be performed based on the times calculated in the flight log.
In a standard flight the aircraft should be fully fueled on both tanks as long as the passenger/cargo load allows.
This results in a fuel supply of:
  • 52.8 Gal = 200 ltr.
  • Substract 10 ltr. for take-off and taxi = 180 ltr.
Based on this a safe flight time of approx. 4.5 hours is calculated, if one uses a consumption of of 40 liters/hour.
With an assumed consumption of 40 ltr./h, surcharges for possible climb flights are already included.
