I've gotten some good feedback over the past week, and have made another revision to the weight and balance briefing. In this version, I added a slide explaining zero fuel weight because in some cases, it's possible to load some
RV's so that the CG will remain neutral or shift forward slightly during flight. I added another slide using an RV-8 example with a light weight pilot and forward baggage only to illustrate the concept.
I also added a bullet to the compartment weight slide highlighting the need to understand the different baggage configuration for a particular aircraft.

If you'd like a Powerpoint version, just drop a line.
21 March Edit:
Added slide numbers and revised bullet on slide Number 9 regarding baggage limits, which vary depending on RV-type.
