Non ETOPS / ETOPS Destination Alternate

Post by PilotQ400 »

New to this kind of forum, and I have a question that is bugging me.

In accordance with the attached image:
- A non approved ETOPS plane, flies from A to B, being C departure alternate and D destination alternate. E is just a suitable aerodrome, 60 min Single engine distance from B, and about twice that from A.
- For planning, can I consider A as destination alternate?
- In flight, as starting the approach, both B and D are closed (either weather related or other) can A still be destiation alternate?

If possible, can the answer come with the basis for it,i.e., where is it written or what lead you to the answer.

Thank you guys
