Autopilot Engagement

1. After takeoff with SRS.....100' AGL
2. Enroute 900'
3. RNAV VISUAL APPROACH...500' AGL
4. Non-Precision Approachs...DDA/DA
5. Non Autoland ILS with FMA Cat 1....160' AGL
6. Non-Autoland ILS with FMA Cat 2/3...80 AGL
7. Go-Around (if SRS is indicated)....100 AGL
8. Autoland ILS Approach (one or two a/p)...rollout/taxi
9. When visibility is less than 4000' rvr or 3/4 mile, the approach must be flown with autopilots engaged (if operable)
10. The use of the AP or FD in Open Des or Des mode is not permitted inside the final approach fix or below 1000' AGL on a visual approach.
11. The use of autothrust is approved with or without the AP/FD in selected or managed mode.

14

Autoland Required

1. Autoland is required below CAT I minimums.

2. To minimize the chances of a go around, Frontier policy is to set and brief for an autoland if the reported RVR/visibility is at or below 1/2 mile or 2400 RVR and all of the requirements for and autoland can be met, the approach will be briefed and flown as a CAT II or CAT III autoland.

15

Engine Oil

1. Minimum temperature for takeoff 19°C
2. Minimum oil quantity is 11 quarts plus .5 quart per hour of estimated flight time.

16

Reduced thrust takeoff

Prohibited:
1. on slippery or contaminated runways
2. when suspected, reported, or known windshear is present
3. when a special departure procedure requires full thrust for takeoff.

Stabilized Approach Policy

1000 ft AFE:
1) Steady rate of descent not to exceed 1,200 FPM
1000 and 500 ft AFE:
1) On the correct lateral path (Course) within one dot ILS/LOC, .3NM cross track for RNAV, or 1/2 dot for VOR.
2) On the correct vertical path (“Glidepath”) within one dot.
3) In the final landing configuration (Landing Gear and Flaps Extended).
4) Absent any GPWS Warnings and Cautions.
500 AFE
1) Steady rate of descent not to exceed 1000 FPM.
2) Within -5 to +15 knots of target speed for approach.
