I consider this recommendation is unduly restrictive. Instead, operators will be required to show that a missed approach point has been identified that will allow a missed approach to be completed which clears all obstacle by not less than 50 feet. Conditions for such a missed approach will be Maximum Certificated Takeoff Mass, full power, and angle of bank less than 25 degrees. No decision has yet been reached as to the level of accuracy needed in making these calculations, i.e. whether or not they should be completed by a certified performance engineer.
