  • Empty weight and C.G. data comes from the POH of Cessna 172R-180 N24547 current (as of 4 Dec. 2011) weight & balance records.
    Always check to make certain you're using the correct data, as it may have changed since publication of this webpage.
  • Station arms, load limits, and airspeed limits come from the Airplane Flight Manual (before 03-01-79) or Pilot's Operating Handbook [POH] (after 03-01-79) [pop-up more detail], or the FAA Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS). Downloading the TCDS is recommended to learn more about your AC.
