Autoland capability may be used with flaps 20, 25, or 30, with both engines operative or with one engine inoperative.

The autopilot flight director system (AFDS) autoland status annunciation must have LAND 2 or LAND 3 displayed.

Non-AFM Operational Information

Operational approval is required for low visibility operations using HUD TO/GA.

Communications

Flight Deck Communications Systems (Datalink)

Datalink messages sent from the COMPANY format or received with a .COMM or .PRINTER on EICAS are limited to messages which will not create an unsafe condition if:

     the message or parts of the message are delayed or not received, or

     the message is delivered to the wrong recipient, or

     the message content may be frequently corrupted

However, datalink messages can be transmitted and received via the COMPANY format if they are verified per approved operational procedures.

Audio Control Panel (ACP)

Use of the captains or first officers ACP to establish a SATCOM/cabin conference is prohibited.

Engines

Engine Oil System

# Oil temperature must be greater than -40° C for engine start.

Engine Thrust

[Option – GE engines, EEC B120 s/w]

[Option - RR Trent 1000 2 engines] [Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 2 engines]

If the airplane has been parked, un-powered, in an environment below -40° F (-40°C), the temperature of the compartment air surrounding the engine fire extinguishing bottles must be warmed to -10° F (-23° C) or greater and maintained at this temperature for a minimum of 1.5 hours before engine start. Verify the appropriate warming procedure was accomplished, prior to engine start.

Flight Controls

Takeoff is permitted only in the normal flight control mode.

Inflight fuel temperature is limited to 65° C (150° F) for Jet A, Jet A-1, JP-5 or JP-8.

Inflight fuel temperature for TS-1 is limited to 57° C (135° F) at or above 35,000 feet and 65° C (150° F) below 35,000 feet.

Tank fuel temperature prior to takeoff must not be less than -29° C (-20° F).

[Option - RR engines]

In-flight tank fuel temperature must be maintained at least -42° C, as well as 3° C above the freezing point of the fuel being used. The use of Fuel System Icing Inhibitor additives does not change the minimum fuel tank temperature limit.

[Option - GE engines]

[Option – English / Metric units]

Note: The center tank may contain up to 22000 pounds / 10000 kilograms of fuel with less than full main tanks provided center tank fuel weight plus actual zero fuel weight does not exceed the maximum zero fuel weight, and center of gravity limits are observed.

Landing Gear

[Option - EASA rules]

Towbarless towing is prohibited, unless either:

     nose landing gear torque links are disconnected, or

     towbarless towing operations are performed in compliance with appropriate operational requirements using towbarless towing vehicles that are designed and operated to preclude damage to the airplane nose wheel steering system, or which provide a reliable and unmistakable warning when damage to the steering system may have occurred

Warning Systems

GPWS - Look-Ahead Terrain Alerting

Do not use the terrain display for navigation.

The use of look-ahead terrain alerting and terrain display functions are prohibited within 15 NM of takeoff, approach or landing at an airport or runway not contained in the GPWS terrain database. Refer to Honeywell Document 060-4267-000 for airports and runways contained in the installed GPWS database.

TCAS

Pilots are authorized to deviate from their current ATC clearance to the extent necessary to comply with a TCAS resolution advisory. Evasive maneuvers must not be based solely on information from the traffic display or traffic advisory (TA) without visually sighting the traffic.
