door removed in flight

door removed in flight

<HTML>I read a post that someone wanted to fly with the door removed on a 150 and someone responded it couldnt legally be done. I have a waiver from the FAA to fly a 172 with 1 door removed for aerial photography. All you need to do is give the serial # to your freindly FAA FSDO inspector and it will be done. There are restrictions on yaw and bank, cargo and smoking. Only 1 door ( left, right or baggage) can be removed at one time.All 100 series Cessnas are approved. The plane flies fine althouth a bit noisy. I imagine it would fly the same with 2 doors off as I flew my cubs and champs flew fine with a door off a window down but the FAA wouldnt go for it.</HTML>

<HTML>Thom...
Yes this is true as we have done the same with our C172.  It's quite amusing to read the list of limitations the FAA states... such as no more than 10 degree bank turns.. no smoking, securing loose items...</HTML>

Re: door removed in flight

<HTML>I have just gotten the door off approval from the local FSDO - and in the list of requirements is a guardrail or safety device for the door off.
Would anyone have any info on what would be suitable?
