Do takeoff mins in the “T” section apply to non-commercial ops?

Asked by: 14645 views ,
Commercial Pilot, General Aviation, Instrument Rating

I understand from 91.175(f) that there are no standard takeoff minimums for us as non-commercial operator etc…. But in the terminal procedures at KBJC for example it has “T” for takeoff minimums for 29L and says “300-1 or std. w/min. climb of 405’ per NM to 5900”. 

So does this mean for us as non-commercial operator that we have 300-1 if we depart 29L? Or does the 300-1 apply to just commercial operations?

    It just applies to the commercial operations. However, the rocks which those minimums are made for don’t care what part you’re operating under, they’ll smite thee regardless…

    Like Jim mentioned, for part 91 operators there are no ceiling or visibility takeoff minimums that must be satisfied.

    However, the climb gradient of “405’ per NM to 5900” applies to everyone. So, if you choose to takeoff on runway 29L in conditions less than 300-1, your airplane must be capable of maintaining that performance all the way up to 5900 feet. It’s your responsibility as PIC to determine if that’s going to be possible.

    Hope this was helpful.
