1. Find Basic Empty Weight from A/C data
2. Fill in weight of passengers and baggage
3. Total weight
4. Figure weight of fuel in each tank / ONE GALLON OF FUEL WEIGHS 6 LBS.
5. Total weight with fuel
6. Find arm of helicopter in A/C date (longitudinal CG)

A/C = Aircraft
POH = Pilot's Operating Handbook
CG = Center of Gravity

Weight x Arm = Moment

Moment / Weight = CG

Basic Empty Weight includes oil and unusable fuel
