The CAPA policy statement has raised a major technical safety problem in ATA's proposal to extend ETOPS diversion time. They point out the fact that the proposal suggests a limit In Flight Shut Down (IFSD) of 0.019 per 1000 hours, which is slightly bellow the actual performances of the latest generation of ETOPS aircrafts. If we also consider the longer mean diversion time over the North Pacific routes, this restriction is therefore not sufficient to restore compliance to the safety requirements of FAR 25.1309
