5-22. MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE AIRSPEED.
260 KIAS/0.52 Mach.
The airspeed limit for extending the landing gear
and for flight with the landing gear extended is
5-24. LANDING GEAR RETRACTION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for retracting the landing gear
is 163 KIAS.
5-25. WING FLAP EXTENSION SPEEDS.
The airspeed limit for APPROACH extension,
40% of the wing flaps is 199 KIAS. The airspeed limit
for full DOWN extension, 100% of the wing flaps is
143 KIAS C 154 KIAS D 157 KIAS T . If wing flaps
are extended above these speeds, the flaps or their
operating mechanisms may be damaged.
Single engine stall speed may be higher
The minimum single engine control airspeed
(Vmc) at sea level standard conditions is 86 KIAS.
5-27. MAXIMUM DESIGN MANEUVERING SPEED.
The maximum design maneuvering speed for
flaps retracted is 181 KIAS and 111 KIAS for flaps fully
extended at 12,500 pounds.
Section VI. MANEUVERING LIMITS
a. The following maneuvers are prohibited.
(2) Aerobatics of any kind.
(3) Abrupt maneuvers above 181 KIAS at
(4) Any maneuver which results in a positive
load factor of 3.17 Gs or a negative load factor of
1.27 Gs with wing flaps up, or a positive load factor of
2.0 Gs or a negative 1.27 Gs with wing flaps down at
airspeed is 170 KIAS.
5-29. BANK AND PITCH LIMITS.
a. Bank limits are 60° left or right.
b. Pitch limits are 30° above or below the
Section VII. ENVIRONMENTAL RESTRICTIONS
5-30. ALTITUDE LIMITATIONS.
The maximum altitude that the aircraft may be
operated at is 31,000 feet C D T1 , 35,000 feet T2 .
When operating with inoperative yaw damp, the
altitude limit is 17,000 feet if the aircraft is not
equipped with dual aft body strakes.
5-31. TEMPERATURE LIMITS.
a. The aircraft shall not be operated when the
ambient temperatures are warmer than International
Standard Atmosphere (ISA) +37 °C at SL to 25,000
feet or ISA +31 °C above 25,000 feet.
b. Engine ice vanes shall be retracted at +15 °C
and above for flight operations.
5-32. FLIGHT UNDER INSTRUMENT METEORO
LOGICAL CONDITIONS (IMC).
This aircraft is qualified for operation in
instrument meteorological conditions.
