Leidos, GEC, & AWBS: A Great Combination

Aircraft Weight and Balance training


Automated Weight & Balance System, also known as AWBS, is a software application created by Lockheed Martin to simplify and manage the forms necessary to document changes in military aircraft that affect performance and center of gravity. Leidos continues to grow taking on more aircraft maintenance programs, so when it came time to train and certify their new team members, they contracted with General Electrodynamics Corporation (GEC).  GEC also provides Aircraft Weight and Balance training to the commercial and civil aviation sectors. The classroom training covers terminology, terms and definitions, W&B Manuals, Mass Properties W&B basics, A/C preparation, & Weighing Equipment.  Furthermore, the final day includes a practical hands-on exercise.  The certification includes a short exam following course completion.  For more information, visit our web site @ www.gecscales.com
