Consider Cessna 172 which has 4 seats, including the pilot, with the seat configuration as the picture below. Say the airplane has no passenger, only the pilot him/her self. I am not sure where it center gravity (CG). For longitudinal (roll), probably we can consider it separate between left and right seats. But for pitch, I don't have any idea.
My question is, if a pilot want to fly his/her airplane, how he/she assign stability control so the airplane will not has tendencies, either regarding the longitudinal (roll) or the pitch. What else control he/she needs to apply to make the airplane safely fly due to the unbalance load?
