Application Note: Bringing Aircraft Weighing In-House – European Air Transport
Conducting weight and balance procedures after maintenance can be difficult to accurately schedule, and can lead to increased costs while having contract weighing on-site and waiting for the aircraft. If an organization could conduct weighings on short notice with a small team, the flexibility would result in direct costs savings.

Application Note: Weighing an Evolving UAV – the RQ-4 Global Hawk
With a wingspan larger than a Boeing 737, the current RQ-4 operates above 50,000 feet in excess of 30 hours for endurance. Initially developed with a payload of 2,000 pounds, later models have increased this to 3,000 pounds with a more recent integration of a UPA, or Universal Payload Adaptor. This enabled additional mission capabilities and the ability to switch payloads easily – with all the accompanying effects to weight and balance.
