Pardon the question if this has previously been discussed here, but I'm a new member. Can anyone share what's involved in the ETOPS process, specifically 180? I ask because in another post on the forum it's been stated that DL may at some point use ex TWA 757s to Hawaii but not until they're ETOPS certified with their trans atlantic flights. Can anyone shed anymore light on this process?...thanks.

Basically, ETOPS is decided on how long an aircrfat could fly over ocean if it lost an engine. This is different for each aircrfat so different arcraft hve different categorys. Initially, it was 90 minutes from land but it is now 180 with advancements in engine reiability. Other considerations are made such as what is th cabin fire fighting facilities like, and even goes into if they have defribilaters on aboard. However, private jets are exempt from this rule.
By the way, dopn't be nervous to repost things. I have been on A.Netters for around a year, and i have done it a couiple of times. You will get some people who will slaughter you for it, but just ignore them and welcome to Airliners.net.

FAA ETOPS certification regulations are at the link below. This covers recent changes to expand ETOPS rules to cover 3 and 4 engine types. ETOPS now stands for "Extended Operations". Reference to "Twin" has been deleted due to the recent changes.

Just a minor correction here. ETOPS isn't directly related to oceans. It has to do with available alternates en route. It can equally apply to sparsely populated land areas without airports.
