OPERATIONAL AND PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR STOL AIRCRAFT LANDINGS IN LOW VISIBILITY WEATHER CONDITIONS

The operational and performance criteria for civil CTOL passenger-carrying airplanes landing in low visibilities depend upon the characteristics of the airplane, the nature and use of the ground and airborne guidance and control systems, and the geometry and lighting of landing field. Based upon these criteria, FAA advisory circulars, airplane and equipment design characteristics, and airline operational and maintenance procedures have been formulated. The criteria for STOL airplanes are examined and differences which can influence low weather minima operation are discussed, together with their probable impact upon operations and certification.
