(limitations on these approaches)

(good to know)
The following are not authorized with an engine inoperative:

- GPS PRIMARY is available,
- HIGH accuracy is displayed, or
- Navaid raw data is monitored.

Reduced Thrust Takeoff Limitations

1. Takeoff at reduced thrust is only permitted, if the airplane meets all applicable performance requirements at the planned takeoff weight, with the operating engines at the thrust available for the flex temperature.
2. Thrust reduction must not exceed 25% of the full rated takeoff thrust. To meet the requirement, the flexible temperature must not be higher than ISA +45 for A320
3. The assumed temperature must not be lower than the flat rating temperature, or the actual OAT.
4. Takeoff at reduced thrust is not permitted on contaminated runways.
5. Takeoff at reduced thrust is permitted with any inoperative item affecting the performance, unless otherwise restricted by the MEL, if the associated performance shortfall has been applied to meet all performance requirements at the takeoff weight with the operating engines at the thrust available for the flex temperature.
