The Extended Range Twin Engine Operations (ETOPS) regulations are there for aircraft that operate on two engines and will fly more than one hour away at any stage from the nearest available airport that is suitable for landing. In these aircraft safety and redundancy is paramount and the integrity of the systems of further importance, this is due to this requirement of the aircraft to operate for an extended period of time with system(s) not operational – in the event of an engine failure.
With increasing reliability, ETOPS time frames have increased for aircraft and we can now fly further and further away from the nearest suitable landing airport – multiple hours now is common and awareness of the impact of ETOPS and its importance is critical.
Anyone who is dealing with twin engine aircraft which are considered to be ETOPS compliant and operate ETOPS routes should have an awareness of ETOPS training – Part 145/Part CAMO/Part 21
An appreciation of ETOPS regulations and awareness to consider how many different aspects can come together and in doing so ensure system redundancy and integrity are not compromised.
