Automated Weight and Balance System (AWBS) Training

Class Description: 

This one-day class will present all the new features of Version 10 of the US Air Force’s Automated Weight and Balance Software in a hands-on training class. The class will begin with a discussion of the terms and developmental history of AWBS, minimum system requirements, and software installation. The basic approach of the class is to give computer demonstrations followed by student exercises that will provide the students with a good understanding of AWBS Version 10 features. Students will receive a complete overview of the software features to support weight control programs for military aircraft. The instructor will also allow time to address specific AWBS needs and questions of the students. Students are required to bring their laptop computer.  A demo version of AWBS 10.0 will be provided at the beginning of the class.
