Taking off from orbx bowerman with 737

Recommended Posts

Just took off with flaps 15 with the pmdg 737 at the bowerman airport. That was awesome! Just had enough runway to reach v2. Have ya guys ever took off from shorter runways like khqm?

Not sure about Bowerman's runway, but what I found quite scary is landing a heavily loaded 757 at Dutch Harbor (I had to go around about 5 times, and until I stopped a few feet from the end of the runway I wasn't sure if I was going to make it).

Then I taxied to the apron, unloaded and took off with - again -  a heavily loaded 757. Must have been close to your experience at Bowerman, but IIRC I didn't only reach rotation speed at the point where I had stopped on my arrival :o.

Maybe a quite unrealistic experience, but really cool if you want to try that.

If you think that was fun, look up Santos Dumont airport in Brazil. 737's takeoff and land there all the time, and the LONGEST runway is 4,341ft.

Aren´t these 737´s special short take off versions?
