Description: 

Scope

The objective of this Recommended Practice is to document methods and practices that have proven effective in the reconciliation of significant differences between measured weight and balance values obtained from actual weighing measurements and predicted values. These proven methods are applicable to most military aircraft, including transport, fighter, and unmanned aircraft, and are applicable to weighings accomplished using a variety of measurement equipment including portable weighing platforms, permanently installed weighing platforms, and top-of-jack load cells. Procedures and calculations relating to applying measured data towards the end product of calculating Basic Weight and Center of Gravity are well established in other industry standards and are beyond the scope of this document. For example, it is not the intent of this RP to address the details of any aircraft’s weighing procedure, but rather to provide guidance on what to do if weighing results are significantly different from predicted.

Purpose

This SAWE Recommended Practice provides guidelines for reconciling weight and balance measurements against predicted values for military aircraft.
