YAK-52 W&B and other calculations

Unread post by paulw » Tue Jul 16, 2013 7:25 am

Hi

I have been searching for Weight and Balance calculators/spreadsheets, but couldn't find any of real use.
They all seem to measure their CG, etc from different points like the jack point under the firewall where CXK is from the cowling rim at the front.
So I don't know if I go and measure it myself if it will be accurate.

Anyone with a YAK-52 with CG measured from the front who could share the calculators? Also other performance charts, etc which may be useful?

Thanks in advance....

The Russians work on % of MAC. You should have sufficient information in your PoH to insert these into EasyPlan for example to give you a nice workable envelope/calculation. The chances are you will never het the CoG wrong on a 52 as you have limited space to pack heavy objects. A grossly overweight passenger will also in all likelihood not be able to squeeze into the cockpit anyway.
I was not always this sarcastic.

It took me years of dealing with A-holes to get this good at it...
