Flying Bozo Posted December 9, 2011 Report Share Posted December 9, 2011 The dimensions given in the aircraft operating instructions P 5-1 for the distance from the leading edge of the wing to the nose gear called "a" is 35.63 inches and the number given there for the distance between the nose gear and the main gear is 58.07 inches. On my weight and balance sheet for my CTSW on the lower right hand corner of the sheet those same distances are different by quite a bit "a" being 33.66 inches and "b" being 56.69 inches. This might sound insignificant but when determining the weight and balance they are used to calculate the empty weight center of gravity or the empty weight moment. So one place a=35.63 and the other place it is 33.66 then b=58.07 and the other place it is 56.69 ???? Can anybody shed some light on this. It has to be a misprint at one place or the other because the wheels don't change position. What gives??? Help Larry, flying Bozo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
