  • A
    With OEI to 1 000 ft.
  • B
    With AEO to 1 000 ft.
  • C
    With AEO to 1 500 ft.
  • D
    With OEI to 1 500 ft.

1. According to CAT.POL.H.200 - General (PC1):

  • The steady rate of climb without ground effect, 305 m (1 000 ft) above the take-off surface, must be at least 46 m (150 ft) per minute, for each weight, altitude, and temperature for which take-off data are to be scheduled with:

(i) The critical engine inoperative and the remaining engines at maximum continuous power including continuous OEI power, if approved, or at 30-minute OEI power for rotorcraft for which certification for use of 30-minute OEI power is requested;
