A proper weight and balance control is one of the most important factors in ensuring an efficient and safe aircraft operation.

Crane Weight & Balance stands at the focal point of solution providing the necessary and advanced Weight & Balance functions including load control and comprehensive peripheral functions widened as an operational solution.

Crane Weight & Balance is a web-based solution that is compatible with all standard web browsers with no specific requirement. The graphical trim display makes load planning easy. Compatibility and load limitation checks are made dynamically as the deadloads and passengers are positioned. Clear alerts are shown on the screen instantly. The application accurately and safely manages all the necessary computations to produce the loading instructions (LIRF) and load sheets in IATA format with enriched enhanced data on the layout. Sending load sheets directly to the aircraft via ACARS, while LDM, CPM, and MVT messages can be produced automatically, and all messages can be sent via SITATEX and/or e-mail.

Crane Weight & Balance supports a standalone mode and provides full functionality with an internet connection. In addition, it is integrated within Crane suites including Crane DCS, which accesses real passenger and baggage figures immediately.

Crane Weight & Balance is used by Crane Partner Airlines and by ground handling companies serving major airlines.


Increased efficiency and cost savings

Significant benefits as efficiency in loading, fuel savings and increased aircraft performance with optimized aircraft center of gravity (CG) engined by a sophisticated mathematical optimization module. Pre/Auto-Load function enables a powerful optimization of load distribution and operationally efficient loading by means of several auto applied loading preferences, restrictions, company rules including Dangerous Goods and Special Loads. Autoload Function pays off with the benefits gained.


Expeditious Developments and Customizations

Customers as partners benefit from expeditious developments towards high end industry standards and advanced experiences together with the partner ‘s requests as customizations on their benefit.


Simple to learn and easy to use for faster and reliable operation

Crane W&B is simple and intuitive system that reduces training/operation time. System tells about any action which successfully completed or missing transactions of users with clear warnings. Graphical views make it easy for users to understand the aircraft.
