  1. All aircraft are flying levers. Weight distribution is very important. After any work that involves moving, removing or installing equipment in an aircraft, a weight and balance must be performed involving calculation of moment and arm length from the established datum line for items moved, removed or added to make sure the center of gravity falls within a determined area under the wing to maintain proper flight characteristics. It’s Physics!
