• Weight and Balance


This EFO Weight and Balance Course gives the learners the ability to perform aircraft weight and balance calculations, using data selected for the specific operation and by applying the appropriate rules in order to ensure the safe and optimal loading of the aircraft.

Learners will produce a load and weight and balance folio which meets all applicable safety and legal requirements.

Course overview

The EFO Weight and balance course is a combination of 3 unit standards that make up the required qualification as required by SACAA, the 3 Unit standards are.

SAQA ID 120157 - Demonstrate understanding of aeroplane loading

SAQA ID 25212 - Calculate and adjust aircraft weight and balance parameters

SAQA ID 252122 - Produce aircraft load-sheets

On conclusion the candidate will receive 30 Credits on the NQF which may be added to a final qualification.
