Will the Weight and Balance feature work for my aircraft?

In most cases, yes! The following criteria are needed to use the Weight and Balance feature within ForeFlight Mobile:

  • Fixed-wing aircraft (lateral loading for helicopters is not currently supported). 
  • The Takeoff and landing CG limits are the same.
  • The Flight envelope graph is weight vs. CG.
  • You use actual passenger and luggage weights (not FAA AC 120-27D standard weights).   
  • The fuel burn can be treated as a straight line on the flight envelope graph.   
  • There is at most 1 fuel moment table (i.e. a single variable-arm fuel station).   
  • Weight limits are constant and do not vary with CG.   
  • The CG is in length units (not %MAC).
