Minimum runway lengths

Recommended Posts

Since I miss performance charts, what runway lengths can I consider to be safe for takeoff and landing? Do I need to take the worst case into account and select from the tables published in the FCOM (I think I remember these are for landings only, so I don't have lengths for takeoff)?Andreas

Please do a forum search for this subject or performance tables. Just a couple of days ago someone posted a link to some tables that provided FAR distances.As discussed in previous thread, min distance is that required to accelerate to V1, reject takeoff and come to stop. You also need enough distance to rotate, climb at V2 and clear obstructions by 35 ft. I think the RTO scenario is the critical distance.
