The Praetor 500 surpassed its certification goals achieving an intercontinental range of 3,340 nautical miles (6,186 km--NBAA IFR Reserves with four passengers), a high-speed cruise of 466 KTAS, a full-fuel payload of 1,600 lb (726 kg), a takeoff distance of only 4,222 ft (1,287 m) and an unfactored landing distance
of 2,086 ft (636 m).
The landing distance
required was estimated to be 6yd (5.5m).
Takeoff and landing distance
is advertised at 1440 feet.
So back in 2008 when the 4800-foot runway was displaced 1500 feet from both ends, the landing distance
either way was 3300 feet.
We had to decide shortly before landing to deal with a bit of a crosswind while fighting asymmetric flaps or take a 2,000 foot shorter landing distance
. We thought that the riskiest thing would be to accept a shorter runway with a questionable braking system, but any danger with the crosswind on landing could be remedied with a go-around.
Broughton''s declared available landing distance
for the shorter runway 04 approach is 1,663m (5,460ft).
They ask for the CAA to publish a clearer definition of a 'contaminated runway' and to develop a system for measuring snow that enables pilots to determine the landing distance
Another recommendation is that the CAA develop a clearer system of measuring snow that provides accurate and timely runway contamination information to enable pilots to determine the landing distance
This subjective test is worthy of consideration since the stroke force affects the initial speed, and the initial angle affects the landing distance
. For example, if the initial speed is 40 m*[sup.-1], with the release angle of 30 and 60 degrees, their landing distances
are 12.50 m and 10.82 m, respectively.
Relative to a wing-tube-tail design, take-off distance was increased from 2530 to 4380 metres, and landing distance
from 1900 to 2960 metres.
An effective way to reduce the landing distance
of an aircraft is to reverse the direction of the exhaust gas stream.
Major Means calculated the no-flap approach speed and landing distance
, which determined that a visual pattern and landing provided the most runway available for a landing rollout maneuver.
