John Brandon Posted June 17, 2008 Share Posted June 17, 2008 G'day all, I am currently writing the safety articles for the July and August issues of the RA-Aus journal and need a little information regarding the statements made in various light aircraft POH/Flight Manuals about operations in turbulence. For example the POH for the Piper PA32, a six seat, 300 hp retrac in FAR23 'normal' category states: "In keeping with good operating practice used in all aircraft, it is recommended that when turbulent air is encountered or expected, the airspeed should be reduced to maneuvering speed [i.e. Va] to reduce the structural loads caused by gusts and to allow for inadvertent speed build-ups which may occur as a result of the turbulence or of distractions caused by the conditions." Would you mind checking your POH and advising if essentially the same is stated or if more options are added or if it is substantially different? cheers John Brandon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
