iFly Weight and Balance
iFly Weight and Balance is a paid service that is ideal for corporate and commercial operators and is extremely simple to use. American Aeronautics can create a weight and balance system for any aircraft. Each aircraft starting weight and cg is preset. This way you are guaranteed to have the correct starting point every time you do a weight and balance. All you have to do is add your passengers, baggage, takeoff fuel, and landing fuel. If you are out of limits, just adjust the various weights until you are within limits. It’s that easy! You will never worry about being out of limits again.
iFly Weight and Balance comes pre-loaded with one sample aircraft to demonstrate the app’s capabilities. A second sample aircraft can also be downloaded which demonstrates aircraft with complex fuel burn sequences. In order to use iFly Weight and Balance for your aircraft you must be a subscribed user. Contact American Aeronautics for details.
Please bear in mind that iFly Weight and Balance is not a generic weight and balance app that requires the user to enter aircraft specific data. Each individual aircraft is custom created by American Aeronautics to your exact aircraft type and serial number specifications and is licensed to you. We can create a system for ALL aircraft. Each aircraft is payable with a one time setup/design fee and a recurrent maintenance subscription. All pricing can be viewed at our website.
Once your aircraft is downloaded there is nothing for you to do but start adding passengers, baggage and fuel. The software is YOUR actual aircraft. There are no cg limits to program and no fuel moment data to enter. Once you have completed your weight and balance computation you can simply email a copy for your records.
All violations are shown visually. Are you too far forward? The forward cg limit will turn red. Are you over maximum landing weight? The maximum landing weight limit will turn red. Simply adjust your load until all limits are black.
Many aircraft have complex fuel burn sequences. iFly Weight and Balance depicts the exact fuel burn sequence of your aircraft.
ATTENTION TO ALL FAR 135 OPERATORS utilizing (or wanting to utilize) operations specifications A097. iFly Weight and Balance supports (dynamic) curtailing of the CG envelope as prescribed in AC120-27F. This is a requirement of A097. A098, and A099 when using standard average passenger and bag weights. Contact American Aeronautics for details.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app and support
I’ve been a customer over 10 years and this app has made our weight and balance procedures incredibly quick and easy. It just doesn’t get any simpler to make a W&B. Amazing customer service and a fantastic user experience has kept us a customer. Our company has had 5 different aircraft programs with American Aeronautics and I have zero complaints.
Great tool for my PA46 which is W&B critical. Data entry is simple and the envelope graph provides a good visual of CG and gross weight. Since I always have the iPad with me during flights for charts and plates, it's easy and convenient to use the iPad to calculate W&B when loading passengers, baggage, or fuel. App never crashes; no glitches noticed. Highly recommend.
Only for logical for commercial operators
I like how it doesn’t tell you it costs $65 to $250 just to do a piston single. I deleted it off my iPad only a minute after I downloaded it.
