Please reply to this request for information !!!!!!


Hello from Miami.

I just completed recurrent training here in Miami. I was told by a GS instructor that cargo carriers of 2, 3, and 4 engine a/c are NOT !!!! required to use or have an ETP on their computer flight plans for dispatch on any domestic or international flight, regardless of the flight being overwater, polar, etc.

I say horse hockey !!!!!!!!

However, the FAR's change all the time, so I could be wrong.

I have searched all over the FAR's; domestic, flag and supplemental, aircraft performance, dispatch/flight release, definations, etc and cannot find the wording that requires an ETP to be calculated, and used.

Guy's, where is the FAR that REQUIRES an ETP to be computed and used.

Please submit a reply, with the correct reference FAR or ICAO regulation.


Thanks.
