a. Takeoff Power. The maximum power permissible, limited to periods of ive minutes duration.
b. Maximum Continuous Power. Maximum continuous power is the highest power rating not limited by time.
Use of this rating is intended for emergency situations at the discretion of the pilot.
5-16. GENERATOR LIMITS.
Maximum generator load is limited for light and variable during ground operations. Observe the limits shown in
Generator Load Limits
GENERATOR LOAD - %
0 to 95%
95 to 100%
SECTION IV. LOADING LIMITS
5-17. CENTER OF GRAVITY LIMITATIONS.
Center of gravity limits and instructions for computation of the center of gravity are contained in Chapter 6. The center
of gravity range will remain within limits, providing the aircraft loading is accomplished according to instructions in
The ability to successfully stop, continue the takeoff, or climb, before or after gear retraction, fol-
lowing a loss of engine power is not assured for all conditions. Thorough mission planning must
be accomplished prior to takeoff by analysis of maximum takeoff weight permitted by takeoff dis-
tance, accelerate-stop, positive one engine inoperative climb at liftoff, accelerate-go, takeoff climb
gradient, and two-engine/single-engine climb performance. This data will describe performance ca-
pabilities for critical mission decisions.
5-18. WEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
Max. Ramp Weight - 16,620 lbs.
Max. Takeoff Weight - 16,500 Ibs.
Max. Landing Weight - 15,675 lbs.
Max. Zero Fuel Weight - 13,100 lbs.
5-19. TURBULENCE AND THUNDERSTORM OPERATION.
a. Aircraft will not be intentionally lown into known or forecast extreme turbulence or into known severe turbu-
lence. Turbulent air penetration airspeed is 150 KIAS. The provisions and exceptions of AR 95-1 apply.
b. Aircraft will not be intentionally lown into thunderstorms.
5-20. CABIN AIRSTAIR DOOR WEIGHT LIMITATION.
The maximum weight that may be placed on the steps of the cabin airstair door is 300 pounds.
5-21. TOILET WEIGHT LIMITATION.
The maximum weight of a person occupying the toilet during takeoff or landing shall not exceed 238 pounds.
