View Full Version : Aircraft Performance Groups

30th Aug 2004, 08:02
Can any of you guys either tell me, or tell me where I can find information defining the aircraft performance groups ie. what is a perf A aircraft, perf B etc? The ANO and General Regs provide plent of info. on the rules applicable to the groups, but don't appear to provide the rest of the required info. Any help appreciated.

Have you tried UK AIP? I know that there is a section in the UK Military AIP giving performance groups for military aircraft (Mil AIP available at cost from No 1 AIDU at RAF Northolt - they have a web site). Or you could try lookin at the NATS website (sorry, don't have a URL)

< 5,700kg

Performance Group C

Hope this helps

I believe all these groups which were covered in the domestic regulation are now obsolete under JAR because A,B and C cover all possible types.
