|Quoting Longhornmaniac (Thread starter):|
Sorry for my ignorance (I'm usually a pretty smart guy ? ) but what exactly is ETOPS? Everybody keeps refering to the ETOPS 757, and I understand that it has something to do with twin engines (and I assume something about overseas) but somebody please fill in the blanks....
|Quoting MX757 (Reply 8):|
I don't know all the specifics but I know that it would eliminate the 60, 120, and the 180 minute rule for twin engine aircraft.
|Quoting Air2gxs (Reply 2):|
Try searching for ETOPS or Extended Twin Engine OPerationS.
|Quoting CactusTECH (Reply 9):|
ETOPS now stands for Extended Operation
|Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 11):|
It actually stands for "Extended-range Twin-Engine Operation Performance Standards".
|Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 13):|
ut it's somewhat ambiguous if they are rewriting the meaning of the acronym or not.
