Default barrel roll in 172


If kept within the normal category load limits, is 172 certified to do
barrel rolls?

The short answer to your question is no.
The long answer to your question is also no.

Certified? No.
Possible? Yes, but you will finish much lower than where you started.

Where does it say that?

The answer to rolling a normal category plane should be no, always.


The C-172 that I fly is a Utility Category airplane, if I want it to be.

Don't encourage that type of behavior with a yes.


Where did he write that he wants top try it? He was just wondering.

and a blown barrel roll could stall the plane,


Gee... and then fall out of the sky in pieces, I assume. I wonder what
your comment would have been if a journalist had written this.

No. As it's illegal to do barrel roll a 172, there can't be a legal
requirement to wear a chute while doing so.
