The Aircraft Performance module includes training on Part 25 aircraft certification performance standards and on Aircraft Flight Manual (AFM) performance charts. The module is not aircraft-specific. For takeoff performance planning, the module details TORA/TODA/ASDA runway lengths, takeoff field lengths, and climb performance. The difference between Part 25 climb performance and obstacle clearance is highlighted. For landing performance planning, the module details Landing Distance Available (LDA), Part 25 certification standards, and additional additive factors to landing distances. Pavement analysis training is included on FAA Runway Weight Bearing Capacity and ICAO ACN/PCN System.
We also review FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 120-91A from an operational perspective, FAA AC 91-79A, SAFO 19003: Turbojet Braking Performance on Wet Runways, and InFO 18014 Compliance with 14 CFR Part 97 IFR Departure Procedure and Missed Approach Climb Gradient Requirements.
