The Special Conditions Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following special conditions are issued as part of the type certification basis for Embraer S.A. Model EMB–550 airplanes. 1. Flight Envelope Protection: Normal Load Factor (g) Limiting. To meet the intent of adequate maneuverability and controllability required by § 25.143(a), and in addition to the requirements of § 25.143(a) and in the absence of other limiting factors, the following special conditions are issued based on § 25.333(b): (a) The positive limiting load factor must not be less than: (1) 2.5g for the normal state of the electronic flight control system with the high lift devices retracted. (2) 2.0g for the normal state of the electronic flight control system with the high lift devices extended. (b) The negative limiting load factor must be equal to or more negative than: (1) Minus 1.0g for the normal state of the electronic flight control system with the high lift devices retracted. (2) 0.0g for the normal state of the electronic flight control system with high lift devices extended. (c) Maximum reachable positive load factor wings level may be limited by the characteristics of the electronic flight control system or flight envelope protections (other than load factor protection) provided that: (1) The required values are readily achievable in turns, and (2) That wings level pitch up is satisfactory. (d) Maximum achievable negative load factor may be limited by the characteristics of the electronic flight control system or flight envelope protections (other than load factor protection) provided that: (1) Pitch down responsiveness is satisfactory, and (2) From level flight, 0g is readily achievable, or alternatively, a satisfactory trajectory change is readily achievable at operational speeds. For the FAA to consider a trajectory change as satisfactory, the applicant should propose and justify a pitch rate that provides sufficient maneuvering capability in the most critical scenarios. (e) Compliance demonstration with the above requirements may be VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:13 Apr 11, 2014 Jkt 232001 performed without ice accretion on the airframe. (f) These special conditions do not impose an upper bound for the normal load factor limit, nor does it require that the limiter exist. If the limit is set at a value beyond the structural design limit maneuvering load factor n of §§ 25.333(b), 25.337(b), 25.337(c), there should be a very obvious positive tactile feel built into the controller so that it serves as a deterrent to inadvertently exceeding the structural limit.
