Airspeed Limitations


SPEED: VS Maximum Stall Speed at Maximum takeoff weight CAS (mph/kts): 48 / 42 SPEED: VA Design Maneuvering Speed CAS (mph/kts): 115 / 100 REMARKS: Do not make full or abrupt control movements above this speed. SPEED: VNE Never Exceed Speed CAS (mph/kts): 145 / 126 REMARKS: Do not exceed this speed in any operation. SPEED: VC Design Cruising Speed CAS (mph/kts): 120 / 105 REMARKS: Do not exceed this speed except in smooth air and then only with caution.




Best Angle of Climb


Best angle of climb Vx is 65 mph CAS, full power at 1320 lbs.




Cruise Speeds & RPM


Cruise speeds and RPM in standard atmosphere and 75% power (above 7,000 ft. the power is less) ALTITUDE : S.L. = 0 RPM: 2500 CAS (mph/kts): 120/104 RANGE (mph): 500+ ALTITUDE : 3,000 feet RPM: 2600 CAS (mph/kts): 124/108 RANGE (mph): 500+ ALTITUDE : 6,000 feet RPM: 2700 CAS (mph/kts): 128/112 RANGE (mph): 500+ ALTITUDE: 9,000 feet (less than 75%) RPM: 2750 CAS (mph/kts): 117/102 RANGE (mph): 500+ At 75% power, the fuel consumption is about 5 gal/hr. With 2 x 12.5 = 24 gal. fuel tanks full, the endurance is about 4 hours with about 30 minutes of reserve (unusable fuel is not less than 1 gallon for each tank).




Crosswind


The demonstrated takeoff and landing crosswind component is 20 kts.




Service Ceiling


Where rate of climb is 100 FPM in standard atmosphere: 17,000 feet.




Stall Speed at 1,320 lbs. (Max. takeoff weight)


Vs = 48 mph CAS




Take-off Roll:  From hard surface, full power at brake release


S.L. = 0 Std. Temp: 600

Above values are in feet

On grass, increase above values by 20% approximately.




Take-off Roll + Climb to Clear 50 ft obstacle at 60 mph CAS


From hard surface, full power at brake release S.L. = 0 Std Temp: 950

Above values are in feet

On grass, increase above values by 20% approximately.

With headwinds, above values are decreased by 25% for 10 kt headwind and 40% for 20 kt headwind.




Landing Distance


Landing distance from 50 ft. height, throttle idle, approach speed = 55 mph CAS S.L. = 0 Std. Temp 1000 ft
