Section III. INSTRUMENT FLIGHT
This aircraft is qualified for operation in
instrument flight meteorological conditions. Flight
handling, stability characteristics, and range are the
same during instrument flight conditions as when
under visual flight conditions.
8A-48. INSTRUMENT FLIGHT PROCEDURES.
Refer to FM 1-240, FM 1-230, FLIP, AR 95-1, FC
1-218, FAR 91 (subparts A and B), applicable foreign
government regulations, and procedures described in
this manual. Accomplish all instrument flight tasks in
accordance with the appropriate ATM.
Section IV. FLIGHT CHARACTERISTIC
A pre-stall warning in the form of very light
buffeting can be felt when a stall is approached. A
mechanical warning is also provided by a warning
horn. The warning horn starts to alarm approximately
5 to 10 knots above stall speed with the aircraft in any
configuration. If correct stall recovery technique is
used, little altitude will be lost during the stall recovery.
For the purpose of this section, the term power on
means that both engines and propellers are operating
normally and are responsive to pilot control. The term
power off means that both engines are operating at
idle power. Landing gear position has no effect on
a. Power-On Stalls. The power on stall
attitude is steep and, unless this high pitch attitude is
maintained, the aircraft will generally settle or mush
instead of stall. It is difficult to stall the aircraft
inadvertently in any normal maneuver. A light buffet
precedes most stalls, and the first indication of
approaching stall is generally a decrease in control
effectiveness, accompanied by a stall warning horn.
