INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
CHAPTER SEVEN
T/O Minima
If a pilot possesses a special instrument rating, no T/O ceiling or visibility minima apply. T/O
depends on the judgment of the pilot and the urgency of flight.
If a pilot possesses a standard instrument rating, T/O minimums must be published minimums
for the available non-precision approach, but not less than 300 foot ceiling and 1 statute mile
visibility. When a precision approach compatible with installed and operable aircraft equipment
is available, with published minimums less than 300/1, T/O is authorized provided the weather is
at least equal to the precision approach minimums for the landing runway in use, but in no case
when the weather is less than 200 foot ceiling and statute mile visibility (2400 feet Runway
Visual Range (RVR)).
Section T/O/Approach
A section is defined as two aircraft. Special minima exist for a section (formation) T/O/approach.
If the airfield publishes circling minima, then those minima are the lowest ceiling and visibility
permitted for section T/O/approach. These conditions shall apply at actual time of T/O or landing,
not filing time. If the airfield does not possess circling minima, then basic VFR (1000 3) shall
apply.
Approach Criteria for Single-Piloted Aircraft
Do not commence an instrument approach with intent to land if the reported weather is below
published minima for the type of approach conducted. During a turbojet enroute descent, the
approach is considered to commence when the aircraft descends below the highest initial
penetration altitude established for the high altitude instrument approach procedures for the
destination airport. Once an approach commences, a pilot may, at his/her discretion, continue
the approach to the approved published landing minima as shown in the appropriate Flight
Information Publication for the type approach being conducted. However, absolute minima for a
single-piloted aircraft executing a precision approach are 200 feet ceiling/Height Above
Touchdown (HAT) and visibility statue mile/2400 feet RVR or published minima, whichever
is higher.
Approach Criteria for Multi-Piloted Aircraft
If reported weather is below published landing minima for the approach to be conducted, an
approach shall not be commenced in multi-piloted aircraft unless the aircraft has the capability to
proceed to a suitable alternate in the event of a missed approach. If both pilots of a multi-piloted
aircraft are NATOPS qualified in model, the approach may be executed to published minima. If
both pilots are not NATOPS qualified in model, the absolute precision approach minima are 200
feet HAT and a visibility statute mile/2400 feet RVR, or published minima, whichever is
higher. Note in Figure 7-3 that a multi-piloted aircraft with only one radio may not use PAR
minima as a basis for choosing an alternate.
