Here's the text of 135.225(e)
[No pilot may begin an instrument approach procedure to an airport unless] The MDA or DA/DH and visibility landing minimums prescribed in part 97 of this chapter or in the operator's operations specifications are increased by 100 feet and 1/2 mile respectively, but not to exceed the ceiling and visibility minimums for that airport when used as an alternate airport, for each pilot in command of a turbine-powered airplane who has not served at least 100 hours as pilot in command in that type of airplane.
I'm interested in the bold part of the text. Does it mean:
- If a pilot shoots an approach at their destination, misses, and chooses to go to their alternate, they need not increase mins at the alternate
- If a pilot intends to shoot an approach at their destination, they need not increase mins if doing so would make those mins higher than if the airport was their alternate
- Or something else entirely?
