The manufacturer of the aircraft places
check marks or zeros in the first IN AIRCRAFT column
under the RECORD OF CHECKING section of the
CHART A. This is done at the time of delivery of the
aircraft to indicate its delivery condition. This delivery
inventory shows the equipment that is included in the
aircraft's initial basic weight and moment as listed on the
CHART C, DD Form 365-3.
d. ALL CHART A inventories subsequent to the
manufacturers delivery inventory shall be completed as
Inspect the aircraft for equipment actually
installed. Place the date on which the inventory was
made at the top of the next unused RECORD OF
CHECKING column. If all columns have been used,
complete a new DD Form 365-1 and mark the entries in
column 1. Place a check in the IN AIRCRAFT
COLUMN if in the aircraft or a zero to indicate its
absence. When missing basic weight items are added
to column II on the reverse side of FORM B, they should
be checked on CHART A as IN AIRCRAFT.
Marks in the IN AIRCRAFT and CHART C
ENTRY columns are made only at the time of
a complete inventory. Never change the
marks or add new ones under a previously
Compare this new inventory with the last
CHECKING column, noting any changes in the items
installed in the aircraft. Refer to CHART C to ascertain
whether the necessary weight and moment corrections
have been made. If so, place check marks opposite
such items in the CHART C ENTRY column of CHART
A. If not, correct the calculated basic weight and
moment data on CHART C and then enter the CHART
C ENTRY column check marks. A check mark in the
CHART C ENTRY column indicates that the appropriate
weight and moment change has been recorded on the
CHART C. Make sure that the inventory date is entered
in the RECORD OF CHECKING column on the CHART
A. Enter the same date in the DATE column of the
CHART C for the corresponding weight and moment
e. When a new item of equipment which is not
listed on the CHART A is added to the aircraft,
determine its weight, arm and moment from the
applicable MWO or by actual measurement and
calculation. Enter an item number, the name or
description, weight arm and simplified moment on an
open line under the proper compartment on the CHART
A. Also, make required entry on CHART C. When a
new CHART A is initiated, the entries should be
rearranged so that the equipment within
each compartment is listed such that the arms (in the
column titled "ARM') progress numerically from the
forward to the aft limit of each compartment. Then
numerically rearrange item numbers in sequence.
f. CHART A is used primarily as a record of all items
installed at the time the aircraft is weighted. When
equipment is permanently removed, refer to the
instructions for CHART C form entries. When a
complete inventory is made, line completely through the
removed items from the compartment and item number
column through the check column on the CHART A.
When all the check column blocks have been filled, it
will not be necessary to include those items lined out
when initiating new forms.

actual weighing data is listed on DD Form 365-2 (figure
4-3) with comments denoting the type of scales.
reactions, and other pertinent information. Diagrams of
the aircraft are shown to illustrate dimensions required
during weighing process. Form entries are made as
a. Fill in identifying data and enter actual scale
reading in first column.
b. Record measurements taken at time of
weighing. Only dimensions B and D need actually be
measured. Distance I, from the reference datum to jig
point, is obtained from CHART E data. Dimension E is
determined by addition or subtraction.
c. Tare is the weight of supports, such as jacks, that
may be placed on a platform scale to raise the aircraft.
The term ordinarily pertains to the use of mechanical
type scales. The TARE column shall be used to record
tare or correction factors. Follow the instructions
provided in the Technical Manuals for the specific
weighing system being used to arrive at net weight.
d. Record weight and moment of all items in
aircraft when weighed that are not a part of basic weight
(COLUMN I, reverse side of aircraft weighing record
e. Record weight and moment of all basic items
that were not in aircraft when weighed (COLUMN II,
reverse side of aircraft weighing record form). Items
listed in this column must be checked on CHART A as
IN AIRCRAFT to indicate their inclusion in basic weight.
f. Multiply subtotal net weight of reaction (jack
points) by their respective arms (dimensions E and F) to
obtain their moments.
g. Add net weights and moments of reaction (jack
