Damarel’s LodeStone is accurate, easy to use and cost-effective aircraft load control software for performing automated Weight & Balance.
Ideal for operations of all kinds, LodeStone is equally well suited to use in a Central Load Control (CLC) facility as in individual stations. Whether for 3rd party flights or integrated with L-DCS, LodeStone ensures safe and efficient aircraft loading.
Our customers choose LodeStone for many reasons – whether upgrading from manual systems, adding load control functionality if their DCS doesn’t provide Weight & Balance or simply to replace outdated and inefficient command line based systems.
Designed specifically for use on commercial passenger flights, LodeStone supports both bulk loading for narrow bodied aircraft and containerised loading for wide bodied aircraft. You get excellent results, whatever your fleet.
