Section VI. MANUEVERING LIMITS
a. The following maneuvers are prohibited:
wing flaps in up or approach, or a positive load factor of
2.0 gs or 0 gs with wing flaps down.
b. Recommended turbulent air penetration airspeed is
(2) Aerobatics of any kind.
5-29. BANK AND PITCH LIMITS.
(3) Abrupt maneuvers above 166 KIAS.
a. Bank limits are 60° left or right.
(4) Any maneuver which results in a positive load
factor of 3.02 gs or a negative load factor of 1.21 gs with
b. Pitch limits are 30° above or below the horizon.
Section VII. ENVIRONMENTAL RESTRICTIONS
5-30. ALTITUDE LIMITATIONS.
The maximum altitude that the aircraft may be operated
at is 35,000. When operating with inoperative yaw damp,
the altitude limit is 17,000 feet.
5-31. TEMPERATURE LIMITS.
a. The aircraft shall not be operated when the ambient
temperatures are warmer than ISA +37°C at sea level to
25.000 feet, or ISA +31°C. above 25,000 feet.
b. The ice vanes shall be extended for operations in
ambient temperatures of 5°C or below when flight free of
visible moisture cannot be assured.
c. Minimum free air temperature for operation of
deicing boots shall be -40°C.
5-32. FLIGHT UNDER IMC (INSTRUMENT
This aircraft is qualified for operation in instrument
5-32A. ICING LIMITATIONS (TYPICAL).
While in icing conditions, if there is an
unexplained 30% increase of torque needed
to maintain airspeed in level flight, a
cumulative total of two or more inches of ice
accumulation on the wing, an unexplained
decrease of 15 knots IAS, or an unexplained
deviation between pilots and copilots
airspeed indicators, the icing environment
should be exited as soon as practicable. Ice
accumulation on the pitot tube assemblies
could cause a complete loss of airspeed
The following conditions indicate a possible
accumulation of ice on the pitot tube assemblies and
unprotected airplane surfaces. If any of these conditions
are observed, the icing environment should be exited as
soon as practicable.
1. Total ice accumulation of two inches or more on the
Determination of ice thickness can be
accomplished by summing the estimated ice thickness on
the wing prior to each pneumatic boot deice cycle (e.g. four
cycles of minimum recommended ½-inch accumulation.
2. A 30 percent increase in torque per engine required
to maintain a desired airspeed in level flight (not to exceed
85 percent torque) when operating at recommended
3. A decrease in indicated airspeed of 15 knots after
entering the icing condition (not slower than 1.4 power off
stall speed) if maintaining original power setting in level
flight. This can be determined by comparing pre-icing
condition entry speed to the indicated speed after a surface
and antenna deice cycle is completed.
4. Any variations from normal indicated airspeed
between the pilots and copilots airspeed indicators.
