Who wrote this book?

Professional pilots and Theoretical Knowledge Instructors (TKIs) with thousands of flight hours and many years of experience in teaching the subject of Mass and Balance.

How is the book organised?

The first chapters cover the theoretical aspects of the subject, including the relationship between mass and balance and the structural integrity, performance, and aerodynamic behaviour of the aircraft. The first chapters also include an in-depth explanation of all the terminologies and relative limitations used worldwide to describe the load and balance condition of an aircraft.

The second part of the book is dedicated to a more practical analysis of the subject, including the load and trim sheet and the calculations required to establish the mass and balance of both light and large aeroplanes.
