“Control” means to regulate, or to keep within limits. “Growth” means progressive development. Therefore, this paper will be concerned with the regulation of a progressive development and not with its elimination. Although weight growth begins from the moment an idea for an airplane is born, this talk will be limited to the growth that occurs after the first production airplane is delivered, and for all the versions of the model that follow. A discussion of the growth that takes place in preliminary design during the formulation of the basic configuration and during the development of a prototype, which is often a considerable amount, is beyond the scope of this paper.
