We want to caution every pilot who flies the R model Skyhawks, especially those who learned in an older 172, that with more than two people on board, you could have a weight and balance issue.
Please check your weights carefully and advise dispatch at the time of scheduling if you suspect that fuel weight may be a factor. Aircraft are routinely topped at night. We need to know a few days ahead if we have to keep the fuel low on a particular aircraft for your flight – all planes do not fly every day, so if you let us know on Tuesday that you need half tanks for a Wednesday flight, the plane may have been topped on Sunday and not flown since then.
We have a weight and balance program loaded on our website for most of our aircraft for your convenience and safety. Please feel free to do your computations there. The following is for your information only – a complete weight and balance should be done prior to any flight where payload may become a safety consideration.
|Plane||Basic Empty Weight||Usable Fuel (lbs)||Max Ramp Weight||Max Payload|
Defueling is a very timely process, one we wish to avoid if possible, so please plan ahead.
There will be a charge to the renter if an aircraft requires defueling.
There will be no reimbursement for fuel purchased away from base if aircraft is returned at a level higher than it was at dispatch.
