ATM limitations

Recommended Posts

Hi before i jump into the cockpit and start her up, i do alot of limitation checks before hand and below is on of them, The ATM...

 


Enter and confirm the assumed temperature which reflects the maximum selected reduction available for takeoff. Assumed  temperature thrust reduction shall be used with the exception of  the following:

 


TOW is within 500 kgs of the RTOW (1000kgs when obstacle limited)

 

Can you'll explain the difference between MTOW and RTOW while calculating ? just not sure and need some help. thanks.

MTOW is maximum TOW which aircraft can handle.

RTOW is max TOW which can be applied in current conditions - runway, obstacles.
