Aircraft Registry

All Weather Operations

The IOMAR may grant approval to conduct All Weather Operations (AWOPS) to operators who can demonstrate the aircraft is suitably equipped and certified, flight crew are trained to the appropriate standard, and have AWOPS operating standards and procedures published in an Operations Manual (OM).

AWOPS approvals which the Registry can issue are: -
  • Low Visibility Take-Off (LVTO) to conduct a take-off with an RVR lower than 400m.
  • CAT II Approach and Landing using ILS/MLS with a DH below 200ft but not lower than 100ft; and RVR of not less than 300m.
  • CAT IIIA Approach and Landing using ILS/MLS with a DH lower than 100ft; and RVR not less than 200m.
  • CAT IIIB Approach and Landing using ILS/MLS with a DH lower than 100ft, or no DH; and RVR lower than 200m but not less than 75m

Note: The Isle of Man operating standards for the use of EVS HUD to conduct an approach below minima are published in Registry Publication 44. Operators wishing to apply should submit Form 44 with the required supporting documentation.

The Isle of Man operating standards and procedures for AWOPS are published in Registry Publication 39.

Operators who have AWOPS operating standards and procedures published in their OM may use these in support of their application.
Operators who do not have AWOPS operating standards and procedures in place, the Registry can provide a generic Operating Standard and Procedures Manual (OSPM). To request a copy, please contact flightoperations
