I'm studying for my IR exam and came across another tricky AIP question.
Which of the following statements about the TETAN 1A standard departure chart are correct?
- Single engine aeroplanes are not allowed to depart on this SID >>> marked as correct
- Aircraft equipped only with RNAV (GNSS) avionics equipment may not fly this procedure
- If the SID is in force, an aircraft that cannot comply with the minimum climb gradient on the chart may not take off
- The altitude at which Cape Town Radar control must be cancelled will not be confirmed in the ATC departure clearance
I would say #3 seems more likely because of the terrain. However, it says that that if an aircraft cannot comply with the climb gradient, it just needs to notify ATC.
As for #1... how would one determine that? I've had a look at the TETAN C and TETAN B Dep charts and they don't indicate anything about being single engine or multi engine aircraft limited either.
I'm located in South Africa and we use ICAO as a reference for most of our regulations.
