In case of a Operational Flight Plan System-Failure, whereby its not possible to generate an OFP, its in order to use historic flight plans, while ensuring that:
* Historic flight plan is for the same type of aircraft en engine; * Performance adjusted as required is made; * Additional fuel is catered for on the basis of estimated wind component, when it is higher than the flight plan; and * Delta correction is applied for the difference in estimated take-off weight.

For departure from same position; If an SUPER aircraft is followed by a HEAVY aircraft, the following separation applies.
For departure from same position; If an SUPER aircraft is followed by a MEDIUM aircraft, the following separation applies.
For departure from same position; If an HEAVY aircraft is followed by a MEDIUM aircraft, the following separation applies.
For departure from an intermediate point; If an SUPER aircraft is followed by a HEAVY aircraft, the following separation applies.
For departure from an intermediate point; If an SUPER aircraft is followed by a MEDIUM aircraft, the following separation applies.
For departure from an intermediate point; If an HEAVY aircraft is followed by a MEDIUM aircraft, the following separation applies.
Wake turbulence departure separation limits for “same positions” is applicable when:
A) The same runway; B) Parallel runways separated by less than 760m, (2500’); C) Crossing runways if the projected flight path of the second aircraft will cross the projected flight path of the first aircraft at the same altitude of less than 300m (1000’) below; D) Parallel runways separated by 760m, (2500’) or more, if the projected flight path of the second aircraft will cross the projected flight path of the first aircraft at the same altitude of less than 300m (1000’) below;
Wake turbulence departure separation limits for “intermediate point” is applicable when:
Intermediate standards will be applied when the following aircraft will depart from the same runway, or a parallel runway separated by less than 760m from a point more than 150m after the takeoff commencement point of the preceding aircraft.
The Flight Crew and Cabin Crew joint Briefing has the following objective:
Briefing is an important tool for enhancement of flight safety as it helps to share common objectives, gain good situation awareness and above all organize activities for safe and efficient of operation of flights.
The Flight Crew and Cabin Crew joint Briefing at base should be conducted where?
Prior to every flight, flight crew and cabin crew shall have joint briefing either at cabin crew briefing rooms or at the aircraft. However, at layover stations, the pilot should brief the SFS as required and the SFS shall brief the rest of the cabin crew.
The Flight Crew and Cabin Crew joint Briefing should be completed within ...
The Flight Crew and Cabin Crew joint Briefing should cover the following:
(1) Anticipated or notified delays to the flight (if any); (2) Sterile flight deck philosophy; (3) Review of flight deck entry procedure (Normal and Emergency); (4) Code to be used for alerting the flight deck incase of safety/security breach; (5) Security issues; (6) Aircraft technical issues affecting cabin service; (7) Anticipated weather conditions (Take-off, En-route and Destination); (8) Use of seat belt sign; (9) Service with regard to weather, seatbelt sign usage, etc; (10) When cockpit PA will be made; (11) Any passenger observation concerning safety; (12) Any other special briefing relevant to the flight such as: short cruise time, sunset time during Ramadan, the notification of Meghat time for flights inbound to Jeddah, refuelling with passengers onboard, etc.
A maximum of two approach attempts at the destination aerodrome are permitted. The following must be considered:
* Must have the required fuel to divert after the approach attempt. * Before attempting a second approach, the PIC must be reasonably sure that the reason for Go around will not be encountered again and landing can be accomplished safely. * Use of maximum possible automation and flying a higher category of approach, if available.

When should a cruise briefing be done
As practical, depending on the duration of the cruise phase. It’s recommended performing a structured cruise briefing - or repeated cruise briefings - covering the following aspects as applicable:
- Strategy in case of engine failure (speed strategy depending on obstacles, ETOPS/non ETOPS nature of flight, preferred diversion airfield depending on aircraft position etc.).
- Strategy in case of cabin depressurisation (speed strategy etc.).
The purpose of the Commander's Voyage Report (CVR) is to bring to the company’s attention any occurrence/ observation related to the flight for the improvement of the functioning of the system. CVR should be used in the following situations;
- Should there be any inadequacy of facilities (e.g. navigation and outages, runway closure etc that have not been indicated in the NOTAM)
- Any other Occurrences that will facilitate improving the functioning of the airline.
- CC jump seats may be used for paying passengers based on submission of proof of humanitarian grounds.
- Deviation of and thrust criteria 1000’-500’ AAL as per ATC instruction
- If the PIC applies higher safety margins, including aerodrome operating minima.
- Significant irregularities at layovers.
- If a crew member was left behind because of incapacitation and cannot be transported on the same flight.
IOCC staff on duty will receive all the Voyage reports and forward the copy to all concerned areas for necessary action.
A runway is considered to be contaminated, when more than 25% of the runway surface area (whether in isolated areas or not), within the required length and width being used, is covered by the following:
(a) Surface water with a dept. of 3 mm or more, or by slush, or loose snow, equivalent to a water depth of 3 mm or more;
(b) Snow, which has been compressed into a solid mass which resists further compression and will hold together, or break into lumps if picked up (compacted snow); or
(c) Ice, including wet ice. (OMA 0.1.13.1.60)
Explain final reserve fuel
An amount of fuel, required to fly for 30 minutes at holding speed and at 1500 ft. MSL/ISA conditions, calculated with regard to the expected landing mass at the alternate airport (or at destination - if no alternate is required).
