Struggling with the pre-flight weight and balance calculations on your Robinson R22 or R44 helicopter? Then try out these MS Excel spreadsheets. Unlike many of the other weight and balance spreadsheets available on the internet, this CG calculator has a clean and readable layout. It is also very easily customised to match the details of your own aircraft.
Simply enter your weight, and the weight of your passengers plus their baggage, and the calculator will tell you how much fuel you can load to reach MTOW, and also show you the CG position on the charts taken from the POH. Simple drop-down lists allow you to choose your doors and dual-control configuration, and see how the change in weight affects your CG position. If things start to light up red you know you’re overloaded! All you need to do is add the details of your aircraft to the data tables, and you’re good to go.
