Helicopter Weight and Balance

Having spent some time looking on the internet for a good Weight and Balance Calculator for the Robinson R22 Helicopter and finding most of them to be poorly designed and difficult to customise, I decided to create my own. The following Microsoft Excel spreadsheets have a clear layout and simple tables for adding additional aircraft details. Charts and conditional formatting show clearly when you’re overloaded or outside a CG limit. Following the success of the version for the R22 I’ve also made versions for the R44 and Bell 206B.
