    1. Consider the following factors when recommending an emergency airport:
      1. Remaining fuel in relation to airport distances.
      2. Weather conditions.

        NOTE: Depending on the nature of the emergency, certain weather phenomena may deserve weighted consideration when recommending an airport; e.g., a pilot may elect to fly farther to land at an airport with VFR instead of IFR conditions.

      3. Airport conditions.
      4. NAVAID status.
      5. Aircraft type.
      6. Pilot’s qualifications.
      7. Vectoring or homing capability to the emergency airport.
    2. Consideration to the provisions of subpara a and para 10-2-16, Guidance to Emergency Airport, must be used in conjunction with the information derived from any automated emergency airport information source.
