Paint Weight Estimation Services

Applicability: Aeronautics

Airbus Aircraft Family: A320 | A330 | A340 | A350 | A380

Airbus Services offers an alternative to Aircraft weighing

After repainting, an operator often needs to weigh the aircraft, as its weight and Centre of Gravity (CG) might have changed.

To avoid this additional activity and save costs and time, Airbus Services has created a new service to estimate the effect of repainting on the aircraft weight and CG.

The estimation method has been developed thanks to the expertise of Airbus Mass Properties domain. The high accuracy provided by this estimation complies with operational safety requirements.


  • Speed up repainting process - Remove weighing lead time with no downtime cost
  • Optimise costs - Save on weighing costs
  • Preserve fuel - Save on pumped and drained fuel as per the aircraft defueling procedure
