SECTION V. MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM AIRSPEED LIMITS
5-22. AIRSPEED LIMITATIONS.
All placarded airspeeds, and airspeed indicator readings contained in procedures, text, and illustrations throughout
this Operator s Manual are given as indicated airspeed (IAS) unless otherwise noted.
5-23. MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE AIRSPEED (Vne/Mmo).
Refer to Flight Envelope Chart (Fig. 5-2) to determine limiting airspeeds at maximum gross weight under various
conditions. The maximum allowable airspeed is 248 KIAS below 11,500 feet, and Mmo, of 0.472 Mach as indicated
by the maximum allowable airspeed barber pole (red stripe) between 11,500 feet to 35,000 feet.
5-24. LANDING GEAR EXTENSION/EXTENDED SPEED.
The airspeed limit for extending the landing gear and for light with the landing gear extended is 179 KIAS.
5-25. LANDING GEAR RETRACTION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for retracting the landing gear is 160 KIAS.
5-26. WING FLAP EXTENSION SPEEDS (Vfe).
The airspeed limit for APPROACH extension (40%) of the wing laps is 197 KIAS. The airspeed limit for full DOWN
extension (100%) of the wing laps is 151 KIAS. If wing laps are extended above these speeds, the laps or their
operating mechanisms may be damaged.
5-27. SINGLE ENGINE MINIMUM CONTROL AIRSPEED (VMCa).
The minimum single engine control airspeed (VMCa) at International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) is 103 KIAS.
5-28. MAXIMUM DESIGN MANEUVERING SPEED (Va).
The maximum design maneuvering speed is 167 KIAS.
SECTION VI. MANEUVERING LIMITS
a. The following maneuvers are prohibited.
Aerobatics of any kind.
Abrupt maneuvers above 167 KIAS.
(4) Any maneuver which results in a positive load factor of 3.02G or a negative load factor of 1.21G with
wing laps in up or approach; or a positive load factor of 2.0G or 0G with laps down.
b. Recommended turbulent air penetration airspeed is 150 KIAS.
5-30. BANK AND PITCH LIMITS.
a. Bank limits are 60° left or right
b. Pitch limits are 30° above or below the horizon.
