Original ETOPS requirements for two-engine airplanes are now applicable to
any airplane types regardless the number of engines
Threshold: 60 min (Twins), 180 min (Tris/Quads)

And what is the meaning of ETOPS/LROPS chosen by EASA ?


= Extended range OPerationS for Two-engine airplanes
LROPS = Long Range OPerationS applicable to three and four engine
airplanes
Threshold: 60 min (Twins), 180 min (Tris/Quads)

and EDTO ?
Extended

Diversion Time Operations


EDTO is the acronym retained by ICAO and some Authorities (e.g. CASA,
CAANZ) to designate the new rules applying to operations beyond applicable
threshold. These rules are applicable to any airplane types
Threshold: 60 min or 90min (Twins), 180 min (Tris/Quads)

History

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

Extended range operations started very early:

1909:

first English Channel crossing (L. Bleriot)

1919:

first North Atlantic Ocean crossing (J. Alcock & A. Brown)

History
1927: first non-stop New York - Paris (C. Lindbergh)

first US Cost-Hawa crossing (A.Hegenberger & L.Maitland)

first South Atlantic crossing (D. Costes & J. Le Brix)

History

1928: first Pacific Ocean crossing (C.K. Smith & C.T. Ulm)

1930: first non-stop Paris - New York (D. Costes & M. Bellonte)

History
Extended range commercial operations started in the late 1930s:

1936:

1939:

first trans-Pacific commercial flights

first trans-Atlantic commercial flights

History

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

These types of flights required large multi-engined flying-boats:

poor engine reliability and performance could not allow design of equally

efficient twin engine aircraft

The 1953 ICAO report shows that for the same amount of
installed horsepower, the risk of an engine failure is greater on a
2 engine design than on a 4 engine design:

History
As reliable and reasonably light engines had limited power:
design of long range aircraft (high weight) implied installation of

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

several engines (more than two)

twin engine aircraft had limited payload/range performance and


were only operated on short flights

ETOPS regulations: past and present


ICAO issued its 90 minutes recommendations in the early 50s
following a review of the piston engine reliability :
no

airplane shall be operated beyond 90 min (all engines operative)


from a diversion airfield, except if the route can be flown with two
engines inoperative
common interpretation was that twin engine aircraft could be
operated on 90 minutes routes

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

In 1953, the FAA published the initial 60 minutes rule:


applicable

to three (until 1964) and two engine aircraft


special approval for operations beyond 60 minutes

History
Until 1952, all commercial flights were operated with piston engine
powered airplanes:

1952: first commercial operation with jet airplane (DH Comet 1)


1958: first transatlantic commercial jet operation (DH Comet 4)

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

Since 1960, jet engine powered aircraft progressively replaced piston


engine powered aircraft:

on all long range routes


on most of regional routes

History
Higher performance of jet engines allowed operations of

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

twins on 90 min routes (Caribbeans, Africa, Bay of Bengal,


North Atlantic, South China Sea, ...)

History
Jet engine reliability
More than 40 years of jet operations have shown that unlike
piston engines, jet engine failure probability is not affected by the
thrust or the size of the engine:

Therefore, the probability of an engine failure is now higher on a quadjet than on a twin-jet

ETOPS regulations: past and present


The introduction in the 1980s of twin aircraft (A310, B767) powered with modern (fuel
efficient) turbofan engines made the old 60/90 minute rules inadequate:

1984

ICAO ETOPS study group amend Annex 6

1985

FAA publishes first ETOPS regulation to address 120 min operations

First ETOPS operation (SIA/A310 - TWA/B767)

1988

The Authorities published rules for 180 min ETOPS based on the very good experience
with 120 min operations

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

2007

January 2007 - FAA publishes new Extended Operations (ETOPS) regulation

July 2007 - CASA publishes new Extended Diversion Time Operations (EDTO) regulation

October 2007 ICAO sent a State letter to introduce new Extended Diversion Time Operations
(EDTO) regulation in its SARPs

In Europe, these regulatory discussions are still on-going

ETOPS Certification Principles


It is the responsibility of the aircraft manufacturer to obtain the
ETOPS certification of the aircraft.

It is a prerequisite to the start of the ETOPS operations (ETOPS


operational approval).

The Authority in charge of this approval is the Primary Certifying


Authority of the manufacturer, i.e. EASA for Airbus.

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

The ETOPS certification of an aircraft is an assessment of the


compliance of the candidate aircraft with all the design provisions
and reliability objectives of the applicable ETOPS criteria (e.g.:
EASA AMC 20-6, FAA AC 120-42A or new Part 25.1535, ...).

ETOPS Certification Principles


The airplane and engine ETOPS certification requirements
fall into five categories:
to reliability (and not only fail-safe)
Lessons learned
Ground and flight testing
Reporting and correcting design problems
Demonstrated reliability

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

Design

An ETOPS certification is a two-fold exercise:


Type

design compliance demonstration


Reliability and capability demonstration by:
In-service experience (Service Experience method) or/and
Specific ETOPS tests and processes (Early ETOPS method)

ETOPS approval of the aircraft: regulations intent


To obtain an ETOPS approval of an aircraft, the Manufacturer must
demonstrate :
Adequate

Propulsion System Reliability (In Flight Shut Down rate)

Adequate

Electrical power source redundancy and architecture

Adequate

APU design (start capability within the overall flight envelope)

Minimum

crew workload under failure conditions

AIRBUS S.A.S. All rights reserved. Confidential and proprietary document.

Single

engine operation: adequate system redundancy

Adequate

Cargo fire extinguishing system

Adequate

Ice Protection for engine and airframe

All

system safety assessment must take into account the ETOPS

specific constraints and the maximum permissible diversion time

Reliability Monitoring - Engines IFSD rates


The regulations require that for 180-min ETOPS capability, for a given airframe / engine
combination, the engine In-Flight Shut Down rate does not exceed:

0.020 / 1,000 Engine Hours, i.e.


1 IFSD every 50,000 Engine Hours, i.e.
1 IFSD every 25,000 aircraft Flight Hours

For operations over 180 min, the engine IFSD rate is further reduced:

0.010 / 1,000 Engine Hours

This IFSD target rate has to be complied with by the manufacturers (Airbus / Engines
manufacturers)

fleet (ETOPS and non-ETOPS)

Note: In Australia, the targets for the operators are slightly different because of
fleet size effect: 0.03/1000E.H for ETOPS 180min, 0.02 /1000E.H for ETOPS >180min

the

Statistics are not reliable enough for small fleets


The operator has to analyse each IFSD on an event-oriented basis (case-by-case analysis)

Operational Approval:
The

National Authority of the country of the operator in charge of

operational matters is responsible for this approval


All documents subject to legal approval are signed and stamped by the
National Authority
The

operator has to send an ETOPS application letter to its

National AA, with the ETOPS objectives (routes, desired diversion

time, fleet, area of operations, planned date for the start of ETOPS
flights, etc...)
It

is required to send this application letter at least 3 months before

the intended date of start of ETOPS (6 months in case of


accelerated ETOPS)

ETOPS Processes (definition)


To obtain an ETOPS operational approval, the Operator must demonstrate competence in required ETOPS
Processes.

ETOPS Processes
Definition:

Series of steps/activities accomplished to ensure that desired result is attained

Process is considered proven when:

Elements are defined and documented


Roles and responsibilities are defined
Procedure to validate the process elements is established
Follow-up of in-service experience is implemented to assure process remains reliable

Background:
ETOPS concept implemented in 1985

First decade of ETOPS operations has shown that:
