5-18. WEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
The ability to experience loss of engine
power and successfully stop, continue the
takeoff, or climb, before or after gear
retraction is not assured for all conditions.
accomplished prior to takeoff by analysis of
maximum takeoff weight permitted by
takeoff distance, accelerate-stop, positive
one engine inoperative climb at lift off,
accelerate-go, takeoff climb gradient, and
climb performance. This data will describe
performance capabilities for critical mission

5-21. 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 (LAS) unless otherwise noted.
5-22. MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE AIRSPEED.
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 pointer (red striped) between 11,500 feet to
The airspeed limit for extending the landing gear
and for flight with the landing gear extended is 179
5-24. LANDING GEAR RETRACTION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for retracting the landing gear is
5-25. WING FLAP EXTENSION SPEEDS.
The airspeed limit for APPROACH extension
(40%) of the wing flaps is 197 KIAS. The airspeed limit
for full DOWN extension (100%) of the wing flaps is 151
KIAS. If wing flaps are extended above these speeds,
the flaps or their operating mechanisms may be
The minimum single engine control airspeed (Vmca)
at sea level standard conditions is 101 KIAS.
5-27. MAXIMUM DESIGN MANEUVERING SPEED.
The maximum design maneuvering speed is 167
The following maneuvers are prohibited.
Aerobatics of any kind.
Abrupt maneuvers above 167 KIAS.
Any maneuver which results in a
positive load factor of 3.02G's or a negative load factor
of 1.21 g's with wing flaps in up or approach; or a
positive load factor of 2.0 g's, or 0 g's with flaps down.
airspeed is 150 KIAS.
