Airline Operations Extended Airplane Operations ETOPS


Basic airline, aircraft and aviation knowledge (not mandatory).


Airline Operations: Extended Airplane Operations – ETOPS course is an aviation course about airline operations, flight planning and dispatch of twin jet engine airplanes on extended routes. In this advanced course we will learn the difference between standard operations and so called ETOPS operations, which allow the airplanes to fly in remote areas where airport availability is limited, for example in deserts, over oceans or sparsely populated areas, such as Siberia or Amazon jungles. Advances in engine technology and fuel-efficiency have made twin-engine jets the first choice for airlines not only for short haul regional routes, but also for long-haul and very long-haul operations. Twinjet efficiency advantage is multiplied when paired with ETOPS. My intention is that you understand the meaning and importance of ETOPS operations, including aviation regulations, certification process, flight planning and dispatch considerations, fuel planning and critical scenarios, technical aspects and other. The course is built from Airline Operations and Dispatch perspective based on my own more than 10 years’ experience in this field.The structure of the course is following:IntroductionETOPS overviewETOPS flight planningBONUS lecturesYou will learn such topics as History of ETOPS, EASA and FAA Regulations, Adequate and Suitable aerodromes, International Standard Atmosphere, Equal Time Points, Minimum Required and ETOPS fuel, Aircraft speeds, ETOPS scenarios and Diversion procedures, Runway Approach Categories, ETOPS alternate planning, Weather impact, and much more!The objective of this course for you is to be well oriented in most of ETOPS aspects, and get deep theoretical and practical knowledge on the subject and aviation in general. For better understanding the course contains a lot of graphical information, practical examples, additional reading materials, and quizzes after each section.I encourage you to begin this journey to Airline Operations and you will not regret it! If you have any questions during the course feel free to contact me, I will answer as quick as possible!
