  1. 1. You have been dispatched from MCO to MSY along Q-100, but because of significant turbulence along the route Dispatch has filed you at FL 220. Is this legal?
    Answer: No. The minimum altitude for extended overwater operations, defined as beyond 50 NM from the nearest shoreline, is FL 250. For the south and east coasts of the U.S., below 35 degrees north latitude, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean islands, not to exceed 30 minutes of flying time in still air with one engine inoperative, or 162 NM from the nearest shoreline, whichever is less.
  2. 2. Are there any other geographic limits to this limitation?
    Answer: Yes. The east coast of the U.S., 35 degrees North latitude and above, as well as, the west coast of the U.S., not to exceed 30 minutes of flying time in still air with one engine inoperative, or 100 NM from the nearest shoreline, whichever is less.
  3. 3.
    • As you track Southbound toward SJU you need to deviate for weather many miles ahead of your aircraft. If you are unable to get a clearance to laterally offset your track, what must you do?
    • Answer: If possible, deviate away from an organized track or route system.
    • • Establish communication with and alert nearby aircraft by broadcasting the following at suitable intervals: flight identification, flight level, aircraft position (including the ATS route designator or the track code), and intentions (including the magnitude of the deviation expected). Do this on the frequency in use and on the guard frequency of 121.5 MHz (or as a backup, the air-to-air frequency of 123.45 MHz).
    • • Watch for conflicting traffic both visually and by reference to TCAS.
    • • Turn on all exterior lights.
    • • For deviations less than 10 NM, aircraft shall remain at the level assigned by ATC.
    • • For deviations greater than 10 NM, when the aircraft is approximately 10 NM from track, initiate a level change based on the Oceanic/International Procedures and Reference Card. When returning to the track, be at the assigned flight level within 10 NM of centerline.
    • Reference:
  4. In Mexican airspace you experience a depressurization. After performing the Memory Items and initiating your descent, can you descend right on down to 10,000 feet?
    • Answer: When determining the minimum altitude for operation following an emergency descent, consider terrain separation and remaining fuel supply. Do not descend below an altitude that provides adequate terrain separation and ensure that a diversion airport is within range of the aircraft.
    • To ensure adequate terrain separation, do not descend below the Grid MORA or, if established on a published route, the lowest of the MEA, MOCA, or Route MORA.
  5. 5. There are nine Pre-Departure Checks that must be accomplished prior to departure for operations in Class II/Oceanic Airspace. How do we perform the HF Radio Check?
    • Answer: If you are using New York ARINC they prefer the check to be performed on LDOC frequencies found on the dispatch release. Perform the check as follows:
    • • Tune and align the HF LDOC frequency in both HF-1 and HF-2.
    • • On HF-1, request a SELCAL check (e.g., New York, Southwest 123 on [frequency in use], Baltimore to San Juan, request SELCAL check [specific SELCAL ID]).
    • • The HF SELCAL check is successful if the SELCAL chime is received. A “C” should illuminate on the audio control panel's HF selectors.
    • • On HF-2, respond with a successful check. (e.g., SELCAL checks, Southwest 123).
    • • After a successful HF radio check, tune HF-1 and HF-2 to the primary and secondary GP frequencies provided by AIRINC.
    • If using San Francisco AIRINC they prefer the initial contact be made via the published VHF frequency on AIRINC-2 located in the Enroute tab of the Jeppesen binder (EFB myMobile365, Shipset, Jeppesen Text Pages, AIRINC-2). Alternate methods to contact San Francisco AIRINC include using the HF LDOC frequencies or by phone. Request both the primary and secondary HF frequencies and perform the check as follows:
    • • Tune and align the primary frequency in both in both HF-1 and HF-2.
    • • On HF-1, request a SELCAL check. State the frequency being used, aircraft registration number, CPDLC and ADS-C capability, and the SELCAL ID.
    • • The HF SELCAL check is successful if the SELCAL chime is received. A “C” should illuminate on the audio control panel's HF selectors.
    • • On HF-2, respond with a successful check. (e.g., SELCAL checks, Southwest 123).
    • • After a successful check, tune HF-2 to the secondary frequency.
    • If SELCAL check is not successful on either radio, but communication with the operator was established, dispatch is permitted. If a successful SELCAL is not received prior to entry into Class II airspace, perform a continuous listening watch.
  6. 6. You receive your clearance for your Class II flight from BWI to SJU. The ATC clearance for the Oceanic Route differs from the flight plan route. Do you need a revised flight plan?
    Answer: Yes. If the Class ll portion of the ATC clearance differs from the flight plan route, contact Dispatch for a revised flight plan.
