CHAPTER 17 | HANDLING
[For High-Speed Crafts constructed from 01-Jan-1996 to 01-July-2002]
The operational safety of the craft in normal service conditions and in equipment failure situations of a craft to which this Code applies should be demonstrated by full-scale tests of the prototype craft. The objective of tests is to determine information to be included in the craft operating manual in relation to:
1. handling and performance limitations;
2. actions to be taken in the event of prescribed failure; and
3. limitations to be observed for safe operation subsequent to prescribed failures.
17.2 PROOF OF COMPLIANCE
The information on controllability and manoeuvrability which should be contained in the operating manual should include the characteristics under 17.5, and the list of parameters of the worst intended conditions affecting the controllability and manoeuvrability according to 17.6 and the performance data verified in accordance with annex 8.
