Did you Know? Some planes can fly 5 hours after their engine goes off
ETOPS, or extended twin operations, is a designation that indicates the amount of time a twin-engine plane can safely cruise with one engine out of commission. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner received 330-minute ETOPS certifications in 2014, indicating that it can operate safely on just one engine for more than five hours before landing.
