Section IV. LOADING LIMITS
5-17. 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 within
limits, providing the aircraft loading is accomplished
according to instructions in Chapter 6.
5-18. WEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
The ability to sustain loss of engine power
and successfully stop, continue the take
off, or climb before or after gear
retraction is not assured for all conditions.
Thorough mission planning must be
accomplished prior to take off by analysis
of maximum take-off weight permitted by
positive one-engine-inoperative climb at
lift off, accelerate-go, take off climb
gradient, and climb performance. These
capabilities for critical mission decisions.
Maximum takeoff gross weight is 15,000
pounds. Maximum landing weight is
15,000 pounds. Maximum ramp weight is
15,090 pounds. Maximum zero fuel
weight is 11,500 pounds.
5-18A. CABIN DOOR WEIGHT LIMITATION.
Structural damage may be caused if more than one
person is on the cabin door at a time. The door is weight
limited to 300 pounds or less.
Section V. AIRSPEED LIMITS, MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM
5-19. AIRSPEED LIMITATIONS.
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. 2-12), are indicated airspeed (IAS). Airspeed
Calibration Charts are provided in Chapter 7.
5-20. 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 247 KIAS/0.47 Mach.
5-21. LANDING GEAR EXTENSION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for extending the landing gear
and for flight with the landing gear extended is 184 KIAS.
5-22. LANDING GEAR RETRACTION SPEED.
The airspeed limit for retracting the landing gear is
5-23. WING FLAP EXTENSION SPEEDS.
The airspeed limit for APPROACH extension (40%)
of the wing flaps is 202 KIAS. The airspeed limit for full
DOWN extension (100%) of the wing flaps is 157 KIAS. If
wing flaps are extended above these speeds, the flaps or
their operating mechanisms may be damaged.
