1.1 General

1.1.1 This document provides the policy, procedures and guidelines for obtaining Type Design and/or Operational Approval for two-engine transport category aeroplanes to operate over a specified route containing a point farther than 60 minutes flying time at the approved one-engine-inoperative cruise speed (under standard conditions in still air) from an adequate airport regardless of terrain. The 60-minute threshold is a point beyond which the provisions of this publication will apply. Previously issued approvals for ETOPS/EROPS programs will continue to be valid; requests for new ETOPS authorizations or changes to existing programs will be assessed under the criteria outlined in this document. Specific criteria are included for deviation of 75, 90, 120, or 138 minutes and beyond.
