Maximum allowable aircraft weight is determined by surface area of the wing and the amount of lift the wing will generate at safe operating air speeds. There are many tools available to help pilots calculate weight and balance, such as low cost iPhone or iPad apps or MS Excel spreadsheets.
Weight and balance is a safety issue. For aircraft operations with multiple aircraft and many pilots, how does management ensure that weight and balance is calculated before each mission? How is this documented? How can management see which pilots are operating without performing their required weight and balance checks? SMS Pro's aviation safety management software helps airlines address these issues. http://www.aviation-
