    It is not apparent what the question is. If you are operating under Part 135, your manual will likely contain a prohibition against landing on a runway with poor or nil braking action.

    If you are operating under Part 91, you are free to attempt the landing. When you slide off the runway, the FAA Inspector investigating the accident/incident will likely ask you why you chose to land on a runway with poor or nil braking action.
