Fokker Four Team cannot take off without Zemic Weighpad's!
One of the first activities after the second world war of the aircraft builder Fokker was to develop light instructor planes for the training of pilots. Four of the Fokker S11 planes are still flying on national and international air shows.
During these air shows the Fokker 4 fly in formation with aerobatic figures.
- Portable weigh pads
- Determine centre of gravity.
Centre of gravity determined
The empty weight of the plane is 800kg. The max weight is 1100kg So only 300kg are available for fuel (2x70l) and the weight of max 2 pilots. Due to the limited capacity remaining the actual weighing of the plane is critical. The planes are being weighed every year and every 4 years there is an official weighing required where the centre of gravity is being calculated.
