Section VIII. OTHER LIMITATIONS
5-37. MAXIMUM DESIGN SINK RATE.
The maximum design landing sink rate is 500 feet per
minute. with a normal flare initiated just prior to touch-
5-38. INTENTIONAL ENGINE OUT SPEED.
The aircraft has demonstrated landings on hard smooth
runways. Hard braking, i.e., skidding tires while operating
on other than smooth runways, can result in damage to the
landing gear. Operations from unimproved runways (rocks,
potholes, mud. deteriorated surfaces) are prohibited. When
landing on other than dry surfaces. use discretionary pro-
peller reverse to stop the aircraft on the available runway.
Intentional inflight engine cuts below the safe one
engine inoperative speed (V, sse - 115 KIAS) are prohibited.
5-39. LANDING ON UNPREPARED RUNWAY.
Except in an emergency, propellers should be
moved out of reverse below 40 knots to mini-
mize propeller blade erosion. and during cross-
wind to minimize stress imposed on propellers,
engines. and airframe. Care must be exercised
when reversing on runways with loose sand or
dust on the surface. Plying gravel will damage
propeller blades and dust may impair the
pilots forward visibility at low aircraft speeds.
Section IX. REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF FLIGHT
5-40. REQUIRED EQUIPMENT LISTING.
A Required Equipment for Various Conditions of
listing (table 5-3), is provided to enable the pilot to
identify those systems/ components required for flight. For
the sake of brevity, the listing does not include obviously
required items such as wings, rudder, flaps, engines. land-
ing gear, etc. It is important to note that ALL ITEMS
WHICH ARE RELATED TO THE AIRWORTHINESS
OF THE AIRCRAFT AND NOT INCLUDED ON THE
LIST ARE AUTOMATICALLY REQUIRED TO BE
It is the final responsibility of the pilot to determine
whether the lack of. or inoperative status of a piece of
equipment on the aircraft will limit the conditions under
which the aircraft may be operated.
(-) Indicates item may be inoperative for the
specified flight condition.
(2) (*) Refers to remarks and/or exceptions col-
umn for explicit information or reference.
The pilot shall ensure that all items required for
flight by AR 95-1 are operative.
The pilot is responsible for exercising the necessary
operational control to assure that no aircraft is flown with
multiple items inoperative, without first determining that
any interface or interrelationship between inoperative sys-
tems or components will not result in a degradation in the
level of safety and/or cause an undue increase in crew
d. The exposure to additional failures during contin-
ued operation with inoperative systems or components
must also be considered in determining that an acceptable
level of safety is being maintained. The list may not devi-
ate from requirements of the Operators Manual limitations
section, emergency procedures or safety of flight messages.
