Extended Operations (ETOPS) – August 2020

August 19, 2020

ETOPS training originated when the FAA decided to grant permission for the airlines to operate twin-engine aircraft, such as the B-757’s, Airbus, etc. over the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, or desolate areas. The operation originally applied to two-engine airplanes flying more than 60 minutes from the nearest adequate airport, but now includes three- or four-engine airplanes flying more than 180 minutes from the nearest adequate airport.
