It also includes functions that help you with preflight planning, such as calculations for groundspeed, heading and how much fuel is required based on the expected wind conditions for the flight.

5. WnB Pro

The most interesting fact about this application is that WnB pro was designed by a pilot who was not satisfied with the existing applications on the market.

This app was built from the ground up to quickly and accurately provides weight and balance calculations for nearly any general aviation aircraft (Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Diamond, Mooney, Piper, Remos, etc.).

It is easy to configure a custom aircraft of your choice, because all you need is to enter the points on the weight and balance envelope and the aircraft stations. You can configure as many aircraft as you want and it can be configured with as many stations, fuel tanks, and envelope points as necessary. Overall, the app is very easy to navigate and by using “share airplane” function you can save and share your custom aircraft with your fellow colleagues.
