In which of the following situations must a pilot calculate the take-off mass and the centre of gravity and check the values against the limits?
  • A
    As soon as the load is different to the load from the last flight.
  • B
    Always after each flight.
  • C
    Always before each flight
  • D
    In predetermined intervals.

Before each flight, during the preflight briefing stage, pilots will discuss the mass of the aircraft.
This will include the planned take off weight and also the weight at which the aircraft is expected to be on arrival at the destination.
Each aircraft type has a Maximum Landing Weight (MLM), the weight above which the aircraft should not land except in emergency.

Correct Answer: Always before each flight.
