weather minima

Criteria, determined by airline operators, that govern whether a particular aircraft under the control of a particular pilot may take off or land at a particular civil aerodrome.

They include runway visual range and critical height for a landing and runway visual range and cloud ceiling for takeoff. A variety of weather minima may be simultaneously in force at the same aerodrome.
