Re: weight calculation

The other important calculation for load sheets involves the fuel, whose centre of gravity can move around as it is consumed. Having the plane correctly-loaded so that it is balanced for takeoff is important, but making sure it is still correctly balanced for landing after having burnt many tonnes of the fuel is also not something you want to get wrong.
