Alternate Aerodrome : An aerodrome to which an aircraft may proceed when it becomes either impossible or inadvisable to proceed to or to land at the aerodrome of intended landing. Alternate aerodromes include the following:

Take-Off Alternate: An alternate aerodrome at which an aircraft can land should this become necessary shortly after take-off and it is not possible to use the aerodrome of departure.

En Route Alternate: An aerodrome at which an aircraft would be able to land after experiencing an abnormal or emergency condition while en route.

Destination Alternate: An alternate aerodrome to which an aircraft may proceed should it become impossible or inadvisable to land at the aerodrome of intended landing.

Minimum Fuel: The term used to describe a situation in which an aircraft’s fuel supply has reached a state where little or no delay can be accepted.

Note: This is not an emergency situation but merely indicates that an emergency situation is possible, should any undue delay occur.
