How important is weight and balance?
The Weight and Balance system for aircraft is extremely important and ensures the aircraft is loaded correctly so that it flies safely and in a stable condition. It is calculated according to the airport Departure Control System which shares critical information about passengers, baggage and other cargo. Making mistakes in this critical stage can have a direct effect on the performance and stability of the aircraft at every stage of the flight.
