As the airplane crosses the runway threshold it should be:

• airspeed within + 10 knots until arresting descent rate at flare
• on a stabilized flight path using normal maneuvering
• normal landing in the touchdown zone (the first 3,000 feet or first third of the runway, whichever is less).


Conditions for aborted engine start

No N1 rotation
No EGT increase 15 seconds after start lever moved to IDLE
Little or no increase in N1 or N2 after EGT starts to increase
EGT quickly approaches or goes above the start limit line
No oil indication by engine idle


Minimum turning radius

24 meters (79ft)


Fuel capacity

Wings - 3,915 each
center - 13,066
Total - 20,896


Items requires "confirm"

Engine thrust lever
Engine start lever
Engine, APU or cargo fire switch
Generator drive disconnect switch
IRS switch when only one IRS is failed
Flight control switch


Pulling Engine fire switch

Closes engine & spar valves
Closes engine bleed
Trips generator
Closes hydraulic fluid shutoff valve
disables thrust reverser
allows the engine fire switch to be rotated
Arms squibs


Cold weather - engine run up

Temp < 3 : 70% N1 for 30 seconds every 30 min & before takeoff

freezing rain, freezing drizzle, freezing fog or heavy snow, run-ups to a minimum of 70% N1 for approximately 1 second duration at intervals no greater than 10 minutes


Required Fire fighting and Rescue Services

800/900 - ICAO 7 or C FAA
Departure and destination- One category below the aircraft RFFS category may be accepted where provided but not lower than Category 4.

Temporary or alternates - Two categories below the aircraft RFFS category, but not lower than Category 4.


Approach category

Approach Category:

737-800/900 קטגוריה (D (141-165


Take off minima

יום, 500 VIS/RVR ללא דרישות.
400 (VIS/RVR)
יום - תאורת מסלול או ציר מסלול
לילה - בנוסף לדרישת יום + REIL
300 RVR (LVP הוכרז בשדה)
יום - תאורת מסלול ותאורת ציר מסלול.
לילה - תאורת מסלול או תאורת ציר מסלול + REIL
200 RVR (LVP הוכרז בשדה)
תאורת מסלול ותאורת ציר מסלול.
175 RVR (LVP הוכרז בשדה)
תאורת מסלול ותאורת ציר מסלול - כל ה RVR חייבים להיות שמישים.
למעט RVR 175 ה rollout יכול להיות לא שמיש במידה והשלישי אינו נדרש במקרה של הפסקת המראה .


Minimum fuel for takeoff

3800 kg



Carry-On Baggage - up to 100 no action required
Total of 300kg is aloud (cumulative!)


LMC weight

Passenger/crew is considered to weigh 85 Kg.
Each hand luggage 7 Kg and each checked baggage 15 Kg


Wing span

800/900 - 36m


Climb Gradient

Vertical speed (ft/min) = ground speed (Kts) * gradient (%)


Severe turbulence checklist

Yaw Damper..............................................ON Autothrottle ..............................................Disengage AUTOPILOT ..............................................CWS A/P
ENGINE START switches...........................FLT Thrust ........................................................Set


Turbulent air penetration

Climb - 280/.76
Cruise- Use FMC recommended thrust settings. If the FMC is inoperative, refer to the Unreliable Airspeed.
Descent- 76 Mach/280/250 knots. below 15,000, airplane less than the maximum landing weight, may be slowed to 250 knots in the clean configuration.


Engine start limitations

• Multiple consecutive start attempts are permitted. Each start attempt is limited to 2 minutes of starter usage.
• A minimum of 10 seconds is needed between start attempts.


Rejected takeoff up to 80knt

• activation of the master caution system
• system failure(s)
• unusual noise or vibration
• tire failure
• abnormally slow acceleration
• takeoff configuration warning
• if a side window opens
• fire or fire warning
• engine failure
• predictive windshear warning
• if the airplane is unsafe or unable to fly


Meaning of declaring "Minimum fuel"

informs ATC that all planned airport options have been reduced to a specific airport of intended landing and any change to the existing clearance may result in landing with less than planned final reserve fuel.
This is not an emergency situation but an indication that an emergency situation is possible should any additional delay occur.


Fuel leak is suspected, and cannot be explained due to prevailing winds, longer routing, actual level flown, ZFW etc.:

Flight time of up to 6 hrs: when 10% or more of the contingency fuel is consumed without an apparent reason (300 kg for 737 aircraft).


Separation on departure behind J or H aircraft

Departing from the same position: 2min behind H aircraft & 3min behind J aircraft.
Departing from an intermediate point on the same runway: 3min behind H aircraft and 4min behind J aircraft.

Lower/upper/super - 80/100/140 seconds


Separation on approach behind J, H or M aircraft

7nm behind J aircraft
5nm behind H aircraft
3nm behind M aircraft
Non Radar:
2 min behind H aircraft
3 min behind J aircraft

Lower/upper/super heavy - 3/4/5 no


Limited to 15 degrees of bank

• Takeoff Flap Retraction till V2 + 15 knots
• Flap retraction from1to Up with Engine or Wing Anti-Ice ON
• Go-Around - airspeed below top of the amber band.
• Engine Failure During Go-Around - Maintain flaps 15, VREF 30 or 40 plus wind additive speed.
• One Engine Inoperative Go-Around- airspeed is less than VREF 15 + 15 or VREF ICE + 5 knots or the.


Approach ban

Approach Ban Point:
• 1000’ above the aerodrome
-Visibility reported below minima:
• Before: do not pass !
• After: may continue


PIC briefing to cabin crew

• Flight time;
• Weather;
• Timing for PA PIC introduction announcement;
• Aircraft specific safety/security items;
• Cabin MEL/NEF items/cabin log book;
• Update on special passengers;
• Other traveling crew members;
• Service passengers requiring crew seats;
• CAAI inspectors.


If higher speeds are required, the following speeds must not be exceeded:

• 250 KIAS below 5,000 ft AGL;

Takeoff is prohibited if any of the conditions exist

1. Snow, ice or frost deposits are adhering to the wings, control surfaces or engines of the aircraft;
2. Heavy wet snow with ambient temperature around the freezing point;
