A runway length design concept in which the length of a prepared runway is such that the accelerate-stop distance (the runway length required for an aircraft to accelerate to a specified speed, and then, in the case of an engine failure, to be able to stop safely on the runway) is equal to the takeoff distance for the aircraft for which the runway is designed. Also called the balanced field length.

The Falcon 5X is expected to have a balanced field length of about 5,250 feet/1600 meters (MTOW, ISA, SL) and an approach speed of about 105 kts at typical landing weight.
In addition to more range, the aircraft's balanced field length has been reduced from 4,960 feet (1,512 m) to 4,750 feet (1,448 m).
The 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LXS will allow operators to access more airports because of new full-length inboard slats which give the aircraft category-leading airport performance and balanced field length. Oct 29, 2012
Featuring a high-speed cruise of M 0.90(i), these aircraft are designed to outperform all others, connecting more key city pairs non-stop worldwide through a combination of outstanding range, fuel efficiency and balanced field length.

Balanced field length concerns engine failure situations for larger aircraft, and is the runway length where, for a given gross weight, elevation and takeoff configuration, "accelerate-stop" distance and "accelerate-go" distances are the same.
The balanced field length is 4,325 ft (SL, ISA) at a MTOW of 41,000 lb; it climbs directly to 41,000 feet in 19 minutes, reaches a mid-cruise altitude of 45,000 feet and offers a certified ceiling of 47,000 feet.
The G650's takeoff balanced field length decreased to 5,858 feet (1,786 m) from the original 6,000 feet (1,829 m) at the aircraft's maximum takeoff weight of 99,600 pounds (45,179 kg).
For example, requiring a balanced field length of just 3,000 ft (914 m) at maximum take off weight, it can operate out of fields traditionally the domain of a turboprop; even out of unimproved runways.The spn will also be certified for single pilot operation, and is equipped with an avionics suite more advanced than that of any other aircraft in its class.
According to the company, the 4,000 nm Falcon 2000LXS will allow operators to access more airports because of new full-length inboard slats which give the aircraft category-leading airport performance and balanced field length.
