Airplane Scale Calibration Services
Many factors go into the preparation of aircraft for flight, overseen by regulating bodies such as the FAA for safety of pilots, passengers, and even ground operations personnel. One of the most important parts of preparing an aircraft for operation is determining the center of gravity and weight of the empty aircraft. Knowing this information is pertinent in safe and efficient operation and aircraft weighing scales provide a solution for measurement.
Though incredibly important, the process of weighing and balancing a full sized aircraft can be a difficult one. Using either load cell pads, small platform scales, or ramp scales, certified mechanics or repair personnel simultaneously weigh each point of contact between the aircraft and the ground. The interconnected modules then combine these readings for total weight of the entire aircraft. This method allows personnel to see the differences in weight in the individual areas to determine the aircraft center of gravity.
When performing calibration services for aircraft, precision is particularly important. Improper equipment and instrumentation isn’t just a threat to aircraft integrity, it’s a potentially enormous safety hazard for crew and any passengers. That’s why we always recommend working with airplane scale calibration experts like Cross Precision Measurement.
Expert Aerospace Calibration Procedures
It’s important to have any type of aircraft weighing scale calibrated on a frequent basis. And it’s also important to maintain calibration certificates which document exact readings against NIST traceable standards. This prepares you for calibration audits, inspections, and quality control management.
The precision measurement group at Cross knows this importance. We offer NIST traceable master standards capable of generating and measuring up to 100,000 lbs in compression force, as well as ISO 17025 accredited airplane weighing scale calibration to ensure your equipment is giving you accurate results.
