Weight Sheet data for Foreflight W&B


Recommended Posts

Hi,

First of all the aircraft is mind blowing... totally surprised of what you have created. I wish you the best of luck with sales and further development of this plane!

I am using Foreflight for real world ops and I've found it to be useful in Xplane also. Although you currently don't have a proper CG or loadsheet tool built in yet, I thought I could get the data from Foreflight if I had a sample weight sheet and required details to create the profile. It would also give me MAC% and I could use the trim calculator in PERF. Do you happen to have this sample data to share?

Thank you.

The data that ForeFlight wants for weight and balance is extensive and not really necessary for a CL650 type operation. Passengers are constantly moving throughout the cabin and changing the CG, so a table with CG range vs amount of passengers and fuel is generally used.

The tables will be published soon.

Thank you! I have only flown up to Piper Malibu in real and that also requires it obviously. Never operated a larger aircraft yet so I don't know the specifics. Very interesting to hear of those aspects. In the Malibu I always checked where people sit and took CG into careful consideration. In a commercially operated A/C I can understand the tolerances are much higher.
