HELICOPTER WEIGHING (AIRCRAFT ON PLATFORM SCALES) continued
f. Record helicopter weight and weighing data in Aircraft Weighing Record, DD Form 365-2.
(1) Record platform scale readings in SCALE READING column, blocks 1, 2, and 3.
(2) Record plumb-bob angle (a) and record in MEASUREMENTS and REMARKS area, blocks 4, and 23.
(3) Record Main and Tail Reaction points as measured, blocks 5, 6, and 8 of Figure G-3A.
g. Reservice tire per para 1.43 before moving aircraft if needed.
h. Remove helicopter from scales and zero scales. Ensure the tires are clear of the scales and ramps.
A minimum of two weighings shall be made. If the first two weighings are within one quarter of one
percent in weight i.e. (divide the less weight reading by the greater reading, subtract the results from
1.00 to obtain the percentage) and 0.1 inch in c.g., additional weighting are unnecessary.
i. Return to paragraph G-1A.4. and perform another helicopter weighing by repeating steps a. through g.
