In the MEL for the A320 it is mentioned that ELAC 1 is a NO GO if carrying out EDTO operations. Why is ELAC 1 specifically for EDTO? In that case shouldn't it be for non EDTO operations also.

This somewhat contradicts ELAC 2 being a NO GO. Could someone please clarify this with an official reference.

    $\begingroup$ EDTO is the new term for ETOPS, not A320 specific, but the name didn't catch on. $\endgroup$ – ymb1 Aug 8 '19 at 10:16
  • $\begingroup$ @ymb1 didn't mean to pertain specifically to the A320. But while conducting EDTO on the A320. $\endgroup$ – Jai Aug 10 '19 at 9:45
