Hi, are small runways like 3900 feet suitable for A42 landing and takeoffs ?

Ohana operates ATR 42-500s into JHM with a runway length of 3000ft

Yes thats the real one. I am asking if that also implemented in the simulator. Its important because will fly with her in Bhutan's domestic airfields. In real life Drukair uses also ATR42's.

Of course you can use short runways in the sim as well, but don't expect to be able to depart with a heavy load from such runways.

At max takeoff weight the accelerate stop distance is around 6000ft at S.L. and ISA conditions.
