NB: W&B information in this calculator may not be current or accurate. This calculator is provided as a pre-flight aid but it is not a substitue for the offical W&B calculations that the pilot should perform before each flight. Pilots should always calculate the W&B on the ramp prior to takeoff using the latest data from the POH and actual payload weights, and taking into account all circumstances including the difference between takeoff and landing fuel quantity and weight.
