There’s a tremendous amount of operational information in the Pilot’s Operating Handbook, an Airplane Flight Manual, old-style Airplane Owner’s Manuals, and even maintenance manuals. But how much of it is mandatory, and how much is just a recommendation? A pilot’s gotta know his or her limitations. In this webinar you’ll learn which apply to your airplane, and why.

Topics we’ll cover include:

• FAA Approved POH and Airplane Flight Manual vs. FAA “accepted” data

• Inoperative equipment and the KOEL

• Limitations for optional and aftermarket equipment

• Limitations from Airworthiness Directives

• Instructions for Continued Airworthiness

Although this American Bonanza Society program is oriented toward pilots of Beech Aircraft, the discussion, techniques and procedures described are valuable to the pilot of any airplane.
