Helicopter is unstable on jacks. Jack helicopter evenly and carefully on a firm, level, flat
surface. Death or serious injury can result if helicopter should fall off jacks.
When weighing helicopter, ensure that area is roped off and that multiple warning signs that
read HELICOPTER ON JACKS are prominently displayed. Do not allow unauthorized persons
in or around helicopter while it is on jacks.
Weighing should be done inside a hangar with all doors closed. Weighing the helicopter outdoors is not
recommended as wind velocities may affect the accuracy of scale readings.
