The Performance Charts can be used to determine factors such as takeoff and landing distance, range, TAS for a given RPM and cruise altitude, and rate of climb. Before every flight, it is necessary to ensure that the aircraft centre of gravity is within an acceptable envelope and that the gross weight is below the maximum for that particular CG. This calculation can be performed using the Mass & Balance Calculator.

The aircraft has a very well equipped cockpit. More information about the instrumentation found in the aircraft can be found here: The Cockpit.
