There remains for us to consider Vi(hat
procedure_to follow when no CG location
IS given in the operation record and it
is not convenient to v;eigh the plane in
order to determine wihat effect any equ
ipment change may have on an airplane.
Any equipment removed or installed
which is located between the CG limits
will have no effect on the aircraft
balance. Eqijiipment installed in front
of the forv.'ard CG liinit will tend to
make the airplane nose heavy. Equip
ment installed, aft of the rean/vard CG
limit or removed from in front of the
forward liadt vdll tend to make the
plane tail heavy. How to proceed in
these CciSes is fully explained in
CAA Manual 18 page 110 to II5. If you
master all problems given on these pa.-or
you should have no trouble underst'^ndi n
the principles involved.
