How far can non-ETOPS rated aircraft, such as the 737 fly from alternate airports/offshore?

Does this apply to all aircraft or just airliners? If not, what is the restriction to non-airliner aircraft, such as biz jets?

This apply to twin engine aircraft, carrying people.
Biz jets are under same restriction.

Flyf15,

You have a great site where you may explore about ETOPS. It is in Boeing Web, they have a link to their AERO magazine.
Go to:
www.boeing.com/commercial/aeromagazine/index.html

Look for archives, then choose Aero 4 (oct 98). It is all there.

ETOPS, while it is usually applied to overwater flights, applies to flights more than 60 minutes from a suitable airport. A flight from from Sydney to Perth can be an ETOPS flight if the route of flight takes the aircraft more than 60 minutes from a suitable airport.

This may be a bit off topic but since we are talking ETOPS.... I just found out -nope, the discovery is not mine- that Boeing subsidizes an airport in the Pacific (Midway -MDY) so that it provides an alternate airport for airlines flying under ETOPS rule... Now, that is a good investment for Boeing, isn't it.....

I wonder what Airbus will do about it. ;-)
