Cessna 172 Weight & Balance Excel Worksheet

I created an Excel worksheet for easily computing, charting, and printing the weight & balance for my aircraft, based on an older version that I had found on the net somewhere. The values are specific to my aircraft, but the spreadsheet should be really easy to modify for other similar model Cessna 172 aircraft.

The spreadsheet includes a simple macro to make printing the worksheet portion easy. If you get the "Macros Enabled" warning, that is why.

  4. Wow thank you so much!!!!! Had to change quite a bit around for my 2008 cessna 172sp but it was a lot easier than making one from scratch. If anyone wants my updated one for the 2008 cessna 172 sp i can email it to you.

  7. I'd love your version Eric. I'm flying a Cessna 172 SP G1000 and I'm not sure how to tweak anything but the arms, moments, and weights.
