This Specification was developed by representatives of member companies of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association for use in preparing Pilot's Operating Handbooks that

a. Are of maximum usefulness as an operating reference book for pilots;

b. Meet government regulatory requirements* where applicable; and

c. Meet industry standards for scope of material, arrangement, nomenclature and definitions.

This Specification is designed to provide guidance for the preparation of Handbooks for all types of general aviation airplanes originally certificated at maximum takeoff weights of 12,500 pounds or less (or 5,700 kg). Consequently, not all of the material in the Specification is applicable to any one model and provision is made for manufacturers to omit material inappropriate to specific aircraft types or models. Thus, the Specification provides flexibility in Handbook preparation based on the complexity of the airplane while maintaining a high degree of standardization of arrangement, definitions, and performance information.

* Note: This Specification refers to various FAA regulations. If the Specification is being used to prepare a Handbook for acceptance by an airworthiness authority other than FAA, the appropriate regulations of that airworthiness authority may be substituted.
