ETOPS-Alternates

Wed Jun 19, 2019 10:31 am

Where can I find out what ETOPS-Alternate-Airports are there in and around Newfoundland for an Airbus A-330-220?
Are there any lists or websites, where ETOPS are listed for certain planes?

Thanks for your answers!

ETOPS Alternates are usually in an operators OPSPECS, not generally listed as something to pick and choose from. Pick any airport that has say 8000' of runway, fire/rescue available for the period of time you will be trusting the airspace and weather reporting capbili1t1es and pax support as needed. Sounds as if you are not actually ETOPS approved, but rather just trying to keep within certain ETOPS parameters.

Do you have access to Jeppesen JetPlan computer program? If so, and assuming the database includes your specific aircraft you can run sample flight plans for 120/180 minutes and see how they come out. Would imnagine the 330/220 does this nicely.

The Canadian Maritimes are populated with numerous airports that are used on a daily basis to support NAT traffic. Gander, and Goosebay are just a couple of examples.

Gander, Goose Bay, and St. John's are probably the only three that would meet ETOPS criteria. The other airports are small with minimal infrastructure and short runways. Part of using an airport as an en-route ETOPs alternate is the need for the airport to be able to handle your aircraft's passenger capacity as well as have accommodation in the terminal/hotels for that amount of passengers. Beyond that you've got Kangerlussuaq and Narsarsuaq in Greenland which covers parts of the N. Atlantic as well.

In addition, we use Stephenville and Deer Lake in Newfoundland and in the Maritimes add Moncton and Halifax.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

Only for beyond 180 minutes ETOPS (anything more than 207 minutes).

Something tells me the OP is not a real pilot, nor an operator so no need for the finer details, just the runways the will accommodate his game plan.
