The operator's weight and balance system should include methods by which responsible personnel will maintain a complete, current, and continuous record of the weight and cg of each aircraft such records should reflect all alterations and changes affecting either the weight or balance of the aircraft, and will include a complete and current. Course information pilots deal with aircraft loading situations on every flying day of your working life this course considers the inter-relationship between aircraft loading and other related subjects such as aircraft performance and flight planning and the very important airmanship aspects of proper aircraft. Preparing the aircraft for weighing to maintain consistency in determining a basic weight condition, an orderly preweighing procedure must be followed the following is a recommended procedure to. In general, weight procedures may vary with the aircraft and types of weight equipment employed the weighing procedure contained in the manufacturer’s maintenance manual should be followed for each particular aircraft. Before each flight, the weight and balance of the loaded airplane should be calculated and checked to fit inside the approved limits 1) obtain the empty weight (kg) and cg position.

Aircraft weight and balance is done the same for all aircraft (at lest all ga aircraft as far as i know) this pdf from the faa provides a nice overview of it you will need a few of the constants out of the poh for your plane such as dry weight and moments for various things. Weight addition or removal in many instances, the weight and balance of the aircraft will be changed by the addition or removal of weight when this happens, a new cg must be calculated and checked against the limitations to see if the location is acceptable. The subject of weight and balance covers at least four distinct procedures weighing an aircraft, calculating its empty weight and centre of gravity (cg), establishing the worst forward and aft cg loading cases according to an appropriate design code and. The aircraft must be weighed and a new set of weight and balance records must be computed and compiled what should be done concerning fuel when weighing an aircraft for weight and balance purposes with the aircraft in a level attitude, drain the fuel system until it is empty.
