This section also describes preventive maintenance that
may be accomplished by certificated pilots, as well as the
manufacturer's recommended ground handling procedures. It
includes considerations for hangaring, tie-down, and general

The Supplements section contains information necessary
to safely and efficiently operate the aircraft when equipped
with optional systems and equipment (not provided with the
