Summary of Change. Volume 3, Chapter 18, Section 5, Part C Operations Specifications—Airplane Terminal Instrument Procedures and Airport Authorizations and Limitations.

Paragraph 3-871 incorporates new information for OpSpec/LOA C054, and updates OpSpec/MSpec/LOA C059 and C060. Destination runway length requirements have been removed from OpSpecs C059 and C060 for 14 CFR parts 121 and 135. These requirements have been moved to the parts 121 and 135 templates of OpSpec C054. The new guidance in FSIMS reflects these changes. OpSpec C059 has been further revised with new requirements for midfield and rollout RVR reports, making these reports required and controlling if available, and setting minimum values of 600 RVR for midfield RVR reports, and 300 RVR for rollout RVR reports. These changes are also explained in the new guidance.
