No DropDowns for this Checklist

General Operating Conditions of Flight

1) The extension of the Airbrakes is allowed at all permissible airspeeds but may cause a slight vibration of the aircraft.

2) While flying at speeds above M = 1.2, the extension of the airbrakes may generate momentary Longitudinal Oscillations.

3) When flying at speeds close to the permissible limits, the following may happen
If rudder pedals begin to pulse, stop accelerating.
If the Aircraft starts to Oscillate about the Longitudinal Axis, decrease thrust and smoothly pitch up in to a climb to decrease the speed. Extension of the Airbrakes instance may cause an increase in the severity of the Oscillations.

4) The minimum indicated evolution speed is 350 km/h, at this speed the aircraft is stable and controllable.

5) During Training Circuits, Flights with the Landing Gear Extended or Retracted, maintain an IAS of 500 km/h.

6) Level Flight at Altitudes between 5,000 and 7,000 meters and with Afterburners engaged will require a considerable Nose Down Trim position.

7) When the Aircraft reaches Transonic Speeds in level flight, between M = 0.97-1.02, the Altimeter will display an increase in Altitude of about 600 meters and the Variometer might display as much as a 100 m/s climb. After the aircraft transits this speed zone, the Altimeter will decrease and display an Altitude about 100 meters above the actual and the Variometer will return to zero.

8) At Altitudes above 16,000m, the Throttles should not be moved below Military Power, or the Engines will shut down.

9) At altitudes from 14,000 to 16,000 meters, the Throttles should be moved slowly, taking a time of no less than 5 seconds to move from the Idle to Military Power positions.

10) Flight time under negative G Conditions must be limited to 10 seconds if the engines are operating in Military power or Afterburner, or 15 seconds in any other Engine Throttle Setting.
