  • Q710022

    According to Regulations, on an IFR flight a commander shall not commence take-off unless the expected weather conditions at the destination and/or required alternate aerodrome(s) are at or above:

    Answer is Planning Minima, at time of arrival.

    This contrasts with the requirement that the operator 'not select' the aerodrome unless the weather meets the planinng minima +/- 1 hour. So my two questions are:

    (1) Is it indeed the case that the operator adheres to a +/- 1hour rule for planning minima at destination and alternate, whereas the PIC adheres to an 'at the time of arrival' rule when making the decision to take off?

    (2) What is actually meant by 'selecting' the aerodrome in regards to the operator? Does it mean, for lack of a better phrase, that the crew should not even be sent to the aircraft?

    Cheers!
