39 6 Hoffmann Weight & Balance H 36 DIMONA Equipment list 6.1 Empty Weight: The DIMONA is weighed at the factory after the minimum equipment and extra accessories have been installed. The weight and the empty weight CG is entered upon the weight report found in Par. 6.3. Should, at some time the aircraft be repaired, or additional equipment added, the aircraft should be reweighed to adjust the weight report accordingly. After removing or adding equipment a sample weight & balance problem should always be performed to insure the CG limits have not been exceeded. 6.2 Reference Datum Line (RDL) and CG Limits : The reference datum line (RDL) is the leading edge of the wing at the wing root rib. The aircraft leveling point is the underside of the wing, mid chord.. The CG Limits are measured in mm from the RDL aft. Forward CG Limit: 270 mm Aft CG Limit Up to 740 kg: 385 mm At 770 kg: 370 mm Between 740 and 770 kg linear run between 385 and 370 mm. 6—2

40 6 Hoffman Weight & Balance H 36 Dimona Equipment list Sample Problem: Pilot 80 kg, Co-Pilot l00 kg, Baggage l0 kg, Empty Weight 520kg Empty Weight CG 340 mm, Fuel 80ltr/57,6kg _____________________________________________________________ Arm Weight Moment (mm) (kg) (kg/mm). Empty Weight 340 520 176.800 1. Pilot 143 80 11.440 2. Pilot 143 100 14.300 Baggage 834 10 8.340 Fuel 834 57.6 48.038 767.6 258.918 The result of the above problem places the CG at 337.3 mm which is within the allowable range. An additional problem may be calculated, for example, that all the fuel is consumed and the aircraft will continue to fly and land as a glider. By removing the 57.6 kg of fuel and the moment, the resultant CG will be 297 mm, still within the allowable CG range. 6—3
41 Hoffmann Weight & Balance 6 36 DIMONA Equipment list 6.2. cont. Empty weight CG limits: With a min. weight of 70 kg (155 lbs) in pilot’s seat, the CG will be within the allowable range, if the empty weight CG is within the limits shown below: Empty weight CG (mm aft of RDL) 6—4

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
