Etops Questions

Sun Sep 24, 2000 5:16 am

Hey Everyone,
I had a couple of questions regarding "ETOPS"...

1. Is this designation only for Boeings? Airbus twin jets (300/310/330) also fly across the atlantic. Are they also classified as ETOPS aircraft?

2. From this forum, I learned that an "Extended Range(ER)" model is not the same things as an ETOPS one. So a 767-300ER is not necessarily an ETOPS aircraft. But is the converse true? In other words, are all 767/777 ETOPS by definition of teh extended range model?

3. Are ETOPS regulations the same for all oceans? Or are they more stringent for Pacific routes than for Atlantic routes, given the greater over-water distances covered?
