Stuff related to commercial airplane training that didn't really fit anywhere else :)

Equation to determine Va at different weights. Va2 is the new Va you're seeking, Va is Va at gross weight, W is the current weight of the airplane and Wmax is the airplane's gross weight:

Va2 = Va x Sqrt(W / Wmax)

Equation to determine how moving weight around affects the CG of an airplane:

Wmoved / Wairplane = CGmoved / Delta(arm)
