5-16. POWER DEFINITIONS FOR ENGINE OPERATIONS.
The following definitions describe the engine
Takeoff Power. The maximum power available,
limited to periods of five minutes duration.
Maximum Continuous Power. The highest
power rating not limited by time. Use of this rating is
intended for emergency situations at the discretion of
5-17. GENERATOR LIMITS.
Maximum generator load is limited to 100% for
flight and variable during ground operations. Observe
the limits shown in Table 5-2 during ground operation.
Section IV. LOADING LIMITS
5-18. CENTER OF GRAVITY LIMITATIONS.
Center of gravity limits and instructions for
computation of the center of gravity are contained in
Chapter 6. The center of gravity range will remain
accomplished according to instructions in Chapter 6.
5-19. WEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
The ability to sustain loss of
engine power and successfully
stop, continue the takeoff, or
retraction is not assured for all
planning must be accomplished,
prior to takeoff, by analysis of
accelerate-stop distance, positive
accelerate-go distance, takeoff
The maximum designed gross weight is 14,200
pounds for takeoff. Maximum landing weight is 13, 500
pounds. Maximum ramp weight is 14,290 pounds.
Maximum zero fuel weight is 11,500 pounds.
Section V. AIRSPEED LIMITS MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM
5-20. AIRSPEED LIMITATIONS.
procedures, text, and illustrations throughout this
Operator's Manual are given as indicated airspeed
(IAS). Airspeed indicator markings (fig. 5-1) and
placarded airspeeds, located on the cockpit overhead
control panel (fig. 2-18), are calibrated airspeed (CAS).
Airspeed Calibration Charts are provided in Chapter 7.
5-21. MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE AIRSPEED.
Refer to figure 5-2 to determine limiting airspeeds
at maximum gross weight under various conditions.
The maximum allowable airspeed is 247 KIAS/0.47
5-22. LANDING GEAR EXTENSION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for extending the landing gear
and for flight with the landing gear extended is 184
5-23. LANDING GEAR RETRACTION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for retracting the landing gear is
5-24. WING FLAP EXTENSION SPEEDS.
The airspeed limit for APPROACH extension
(40%) of the wing flaps is 202 KIAS. The airspeed
