Not such a large hole to be a problem. Have a look at this thread where I both asked for advice and reported back on my success in making home repairs on an Aerotec...

Aerotec patching/glue advice.

Proper prep, proper use of the correct PVC 2-part glue, due regard to air temp and moisture levels, keep pressure on the repair overnight and for me I'd not fully inflate a HP floor to pressure for another 2/3 days.

Yep, that's a PITA (little *******) but at least in a 'good' spot and not on a seam or corner etc.

It's PVC.

I would recommend overlapping the patch pretty significantly.
