Slovenia-based charter management company Elit’Avia received approval from the Slovenian Civil Aviation Agency for extended-range operations (EROPS) for its Bombardier Global 6000 and Challenger 605. EROPS approval allows aircraft to fly routes that provide three-hour access over water using one engine to a suitable alternate airport, twice that for extended-range twin-engine operation performance standard (ETOPS) regulations. This allows for more direct routings. For example, a Challenger 605 flying from Luanda, Angola, to Rio de Janeiro would take more than 10.5 hours and require a fuel stop under ETOPS, but only nine hours nonstop under EROPS.
