1

Approach Categories

  • Cat C . . . A319/A320
  • Cat D . . . A321

2

STABILIZED APPROACH POLICY

3

MAXIMUM WIND LIMITATIONS FOR TAKEOFF AND LANDING

4

RUNWAY LIMITATIONS

“Normal” width runway =

At least 150 ft / 45 meters wide

5

RUNWAY LIMITATIONS

Narrow runway =

Anything less than 150 feet / 45 meters wide

6

PASSENGER & CARGO DOOR LIMITATIONS

  • Max wind for passenger door operation: 65 kts
  • Max wind for cargo door operations: 40 kts / 50 kts
  • If the aircraft nose is oriented into the wind, or if the cargo door is on the leeward side of the aircraft, operation of the cargo door is permitted in winds up to 50 knots. If wind speed begins to exceed these limitations, the cargo door must be closed before the wind speed exceeds 65 kts.

7

SPEED LIMITATIONS

23

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS LIMITATIONS

Auto flight limitations

Autopilot minimum engagement height — Autoland Approach:

ROLLOUT/Taxi Speed

24

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS LIMITATIONS

Autoland parameters

When is an autoland REQUIRED?

Autoland is required below CAT I minimums. To minimize the chances of a go-around, if the weather is reported to be below 1/2 mile or 2400 RVR AND all of the requirements for an autoland can be met, it is Frontier‘s policy to brief it and fly it as a Cat II / Cat III autoland.
