(a) Unless specifically approved by the Authority in accordance with OPS 1.246 (a) (ETOPS approval), an operator shall not operate a two-engined aeroplane over a route which contains a point further from an adequate aerodrome (under standard conditions in still air) than, in the case of:
2. Performance Class A aeroplanes with:
3. Performance Class B or C aeroplanes:
(b) An operator shall determine a speed for the calculation of the maximum distance to an adequate aerodrome for each two-engined aeroplane type or variant operated, not exceeding VMO, based upon the true airspeed that the aeroplane can maintain with one-engine-inoperative.
(c) An operator must ensure that the following data, specific to each type or variant, is included in the Operations Manual:
Note: The speeds specified above are only intended to be used for establishing the maximum distance from an adequate aerodrome.
