2.1. At all stages of the flight to LA should not have features that contribute to its involuntary release for operational limits. According to its aerobatic properties LA must be available in the management of novice pilots and Amateurs, easy to pilot on takeoff, landing and performing simple maneuvers. Methods of piloting LA should not contradict the generally accepted methods of piloting. The use of nonstandard control systems is prohibited.
 
2.2. For Amateur-built aircraft must conform to the following limit speeds:

landing speed – not less than 0.95 stall speed;
 
cruising speed – not less than 1,3 stall speed;
 
the stall speed – not more than 90 km/h.
 
Under the stall speed means the minimum speed at which there are signs of intense of flow separation on the wing – shaking warning design or control knobs, parauterine aircraft. As the stall speed (if no stall) can be accepted minimum airspeed without the roll, corresponding to full deflection of the control stick in the direction of decreasing speed in the idling conditions of the engine. The stall should be accompanied by a lowering of the nose of LA without the roll with the subsequent set speed, otherwise LA should be visible to the pilot indications of approach to stall.
