Wakeballast steel shot is ideally suited to aircraft ballast applications where the precise placement of extra weight is required. As ballast can be used to simulate aircraft loading or to bring the centre of gravity into the allowable range.

The loading, or weight and balance, of an aircraft is one of the most important items in the flight test as it affects both performance and stability. Using Wakeballast steel shot ballast bags during flight tests allows different payloads to be simulated and small compact weights to be positioned in precise locations.

Wake Ballast Alaska

We’ve been a long time customer of WB. Ben and the whole team are quick to respond to questions, provide added details whenever needed, and I even got a call from Ben when there was an issue with our account and shipping totals were off. The level of personalized customer service is incredible. The product speaks for itself but the customer service is what puts them over the top. Great job WakeBallast! We love you in Alaska!
