Default W & B near Orange, TX

The current owner of my RV-6, N168TX, is based at KORG. He wants to do a new weight & balance. Anyone around there help him out or direct him?

Try reaching out to the local EAA chapter, I've found it's not uncommon for chapters to have a set of scales available for member use.

I think this is correct: What you really need for EAB W&B is accurate scales. I don't think that you need certified aircraft scales, which are presumed accurate because of their certification.

Yeah, I don't know that there is a requirement for certified/calibrated scales. Those calibrated scales always say I'm too fat

Default Scales at VCT

I am about an 1.25 hour flight from ORG in Victoria, TX and willing to weigh his aircraft.
