For most aircraft manufacturers, pilots, and others in the industry, the center of gravity and its relation to the helicopter’s functionality makes sense, but for the average person, it can be a little complex.

The center of gravity is where the mass of an object is concentrated or balanced. The object tends to rotate at this point.
Italian aircraft accident investigation authority ANSV has determined that for a takeoff from Verona, Italy, on September 1, 2009, 87 passengers flying onwards to Rome were not redistributed. 58 of these passengers had been in the rear cabin and another 25 in the center cabin, with just 4 in the front. The passengers were supposed to be redistributed with 29 seated in each cabin.
