777 CAT3B app with one gen failed

777 making CAT3B approach, with LAND3 annunciated and one engine gen failed. Do we have to go around? Or can still go on with CAT3B approach.Thanks.

From an Autoland perspective, continue and land. The ASA will indicate LAND 3, so no downgrade required. In fact, with only one backup Gen operating the B777 is still CatIIIA capable, as the ASA will indicated LAND 2.

But be careful. Not all CAT 3 required items are monitored by the system.
Not to worry about on finals, but items like Windscreen wipers! must be S for Cat 3 approach, but not monitored.

On the bus QRH there is a list of non monitored sys/devices with correspondent limitation(s).
Isn't there on 777 ?

Going back to the original thread, only 1 Generator out shouldnt be a problem at all, according to Boeing 777s have 6 generators (in Total) and only 1 failing should not result in any downgrade from CAT3 !!!

Thank you. No, boeing doesn't state anything concerning non monitering items on QRH. Will be nice to have.

Depends when the failure occured.

Check the inhibited items, different levels for the stages of approach
eg. <1000' , ABP & SOPS
<200'
