Enroute Landing Performance means the actual landing distance required for the actual conditions, aeroplane configuration, runway conditions, and aeroplane system integrity using the deceleration devices planned to be used for the landing. The actual landing distance required is obtained by reference to the data supplied by the manufacturer either through an EFB or the aircraft’s manual.

OPT means the Boeing Onboard Performance Tool software.

        1     The operator’s manuals must be amended to indicate an air distance of 1 500 feet for normal configuration and non-normal configuration landing distances when computing Enroute Landing Performance.
        2     The operator’s OPT must be modified to include an air distance of 1 500 feet for all Enroute Landing Performance computations.
        3     Despite subsection 11 of CAO 20.7.1B, when en route, except in an emergency, pilots employed by the operator must use a landing distance that is 1.15 times the Enroute Landing Performance.
