Aircraft profiles are completely customizable and Templates are available for many General Aviation Aircraft models. Works with Two, Four, Six, Eight+ Seat aircraft.  Calculate Weight & Balance for A Cherokee Six, Beechcraft Bonanza, or a King Air. The number of seating rows and baggage areas are unique and customizable for each aircraft.

Save your personal weight in the app preferences and you will never have to enter it again.  The app will automatically place your weight in the Left Front Seat of the aircraft every time it launches.  Enter the existing seat weights and they are saved if you change your aircraft selection allowing for quick recalculation between multiple aircraft without reentering values.

Weight and Balance Envelope Graph

Fuel is displayed in English units (Gallons or Pounds) or Metric Units (Liters/Kilograms).  Complete support for Metric units within the aircraft values will follow in a later update to the app.
