Do the procedures specify that no person may begin an IFR flight operation unless it carries enough fuel (considering weather reports or forecasts or any combination of them), to complete the flight to the first airport of intended landing; from that airport to an alternate airport (when an alternate is required); and in either case, fly after that at normal cruising speed the minimum time appropriate to that aircraft?


REFERENCES: 8900.1 Vol 3 Ch 25 Sec 5, 135.223

NOTE: An alternate airport is required if destination weather is not: 1. At least 1,500 feet above the lowest circling MDA, if a circling approach is authorized for the airport; or 2. If a circling approach is not authorized, at least 1,500 feet above the lowest published instrument approach minimum or 2,000 feet above the airport elevation, whichever is greater; and 3. The visibility at that airport will be at least 3 miles, or 2 miles more than the lowest applicable visibility minimums, whichever is greater, for the instrument approach to be used.
