G L Marion: 2058. The Weight and Balance Advisory Circular. 1992.



Advisory Circulars are regulatory documents that provide guidelines for aircraft operators as may be required for specific operations. As such they are intended for guidelines only, but they inevitably have a tendency to become much more than that when viewed by local regulatory authorities. Often, they become mandatory and all changes to them are expected to be incorporated into an operator’s system. Some changes will have an impact on an operation to the extent that there will be fierce rebuttal to that change. It was such with A/C 120-27B when it was first proposed in June, 1989. It is a subject of concern and a topic that is very popular among airline operators. It is the reason for this paper.
