Welcome to the CPL Performance question and answer forum. Please feel free to post your questions but more importantly also suggest answers for your forum colleagues. Bob himself or one of the other tutors will get to your question as soon as we can.
I understand why it's the answer, however if you're at 2360kg then the FWD limit is 2400mm as stated by casa. Is the idea that this can still move if you burn from aux or do we need to consider this fwd limit unmovable, because if you do the math's and you're at 2360 and burn from aux you will move fwd outside the fwd limit of 2400mm?

I just ran a search check in case this had arisen in the past and it has. My previous comments still apply and I guess the question will be amended once either Bob or Stuart review this thread. How they manage to keep track of everything they have on their plates is rather amazing - that the occasional ball goes through to the keeper has to be an accepted reality.
The question assumed that the gross weight at take-off would be well above 2360kg. I have changed the wording to say "the gross weight at take-off is 2900kg and the centre of gravity is exactly on the forward limit".
Then, as weight reduces, the forward limit moves forward faster than the centre of gravity does. That makes the question valid.
