Brazil - IFR Airports throughout Brazil - Airport Charts and Departure Procedures

Brazil issued AIP Supplement N230/18 – A136/18 which includes information regarding extensive changes to their take-off minimums criteria. In the past, Brazil published take-off minimums with the Standard Instrument Departure (SID) procedures. This will continue ONLY for take-off minimums that have been raised to accommodate obstacle avoidance. When take-off minimums are directly associated to a particular SID, they apply to that procedure only. Take-off minimums NOT associated to a specific SID or series of SIDs will be depicted on the Airport chart.

Guide for determining Take-off Minimums in Brazil:

SID Reflects Take-off Minimums

Brazil intends to transition to this new take-off minimums philosophy in phases. In the first phase, NOTAMs were issued which removed the take-off minimums from numerous SIDs. This action means their new take-off minimums apply. If the take-off minimums have been removed from all SIDs at a particular airport, the new take-off minimums would apply for all SIDs as well. The Jeppesen Airport chart will be updated with the appropriate take-off minimums. When the new take-off minimums apply, the attached tables can be used to determine the applicable required visibility for your operation. In the interim, Brazil has indicated that the take-off minimums currently charted can be used during the transition to the new philosophy.

The new take-off minimums are in the form of a visibility only and can be determined by the availability of specific runway lighting, the number of RVR sensors, and a Head-Up Guidance System. Based on those factors the following table displays the appropriate visibility required for take-off.

Examples – The Jeppesen chart depiction of Brazil’s new take-off minimums represents the basic version of new take-off minimums. When HIRL/CL/RVR/HGS are available, lower minimums that apply to Brazil Civil Aviation Regulations for 121/135 operators will also be depicted. When these minimums appear on the Jeppesen Airport chart it has been converted to the new Take-off Minimums concept.
