The Importance of Weight and Balance

The Importance of Weight and Balance

Today the BMAA has published the first in a series of Pilot Information Leaflets (PILs) which are designed to inform microlight pilots and help improve their safety and skills.

Pil 001 is entitled "The Importance of Weight and Balance". It is designed to highlight the importance of knowing the true weight of an aircraft and alerting to the dangers of not doing so or, worse still, ignoring the real numbers.

We can also make use of third party services such as video clip players which can set cookies, for example to enable them to know that you part played a video clip previously, or to store customised settings such as brightness or volume. Close
