CFI Tools Weight and Balance App


CFI Tools today announced the latest upgrades to the CFI Tools Weight and Balance App. The W&B App that has become the standard for General Aviation (GA) pilots now offers expanded functionality.

The Weight and Balance App has simplified and standardized this complex and sometimes confusing task.

The new V-Speed feature is a natural add-on for the W&B calculation. A pilot is required to know a long list of "memory items" about the aircraft including what airspeed should be used for each phase of flight. These are known as "V-Speeds". The V-Speed feature keeps these "memory items" at the pilots fingertips. These items aren’t limited to speeds, pilots use this feature to keep track of fuel capacity, oil requirements, flap settings or any other checklist item that the pilot needs at his fingertips.
