FAA 8083-1A

Weight and balance is one of the most important factors affecting safety of flight. An overweight aircraft, or one whose center of gravity is outside the allowable limits, is inefficient and dangerous to fly. The responsibility for proper weight and balance control begins with the engineers and designers and extends to the pilot who operates and the Aviation Maintenance Technician who maintains the aircraft.

This book explains in detail the process to determine the weight and balance of any aircraft. Applicable to both airplanes and helicopters, this book is a primary reference for all FAA Knowledge Exams for both pilots and mechanics. Approx. 96 pages, paperback.

Pros:
This is an eccellent resource of weight and balance information for anyone from the A/P to the kit builder to assure that the aircraft are in a safe condition for flight.
Cons:
none

This book was more in depth than I thought from the discription for an enthusiast like myself but as mentioned above it is great for the homebuilder or the experienced A/P mechanic.
