Tailspin Posted July 10, 2012 Report Share Posted July 10, 2012 Just received this from our head office: "We have recently been informed that a weight and balance addendum for flights with doors off is mandatory. Until the addendums are received and on board the aircraft, FLIGHTS WITH DOORS OFF ARE NOT PERMITTED. We will be making the Addendums up and will forward them to you promptly. Once you have the Addendum, you may remove your door as long as an appropriate entry is made." ie. “Pilot door removed for operational convenience. Weight and Balance Addendum #........ now in effect with and empty weight of …………lbs at …………..inches aft of the datum.” Then you must sign your entry. I think that moving my thermos and lunch box from the cockpit to the hat rack would have a bigger impact to the weight and balance. What if one were to put the door in the backseat when it was removed? A second entry? We're talking about Bell light and intermediates here and I'm a bit puzzled. Is this a standard that I've been missing up until now (whoops) or is this new? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
