Flying a heavier than air ’requires some precautions….
The weight distribution on board must allow it to fly away ... This is the balance!

The points that will be developed during the videoconference sessions will be as follows:

  • Using manual centering sheets

The Objectives of Theoretical ATPL Airline Pilot Training

The stability and maneuverability of an aircraft are associated with the position of its center of gravity.
This changes position depending on the loading of the aircraft.
Calculation methods are therefore studied in order to fly safely.
