How Long of a Runway Do You Need?

Colin Arnold
Brief Description:
The running joke among IFR pilots for those Non-Precision Approaches with high minimum descent attitudes is “give me enough runway and I’ll get it down!” However, just how much runway is really necessary? This talk will present one technique for creating a personal minimum for runway lengths with non-precision approaches. It will begin by exploring commonly misunderstood elements of approach plates then look to see how we can link an aircraft’s landing performance data to it to thus be able to figure out how much runway is necessary to land.
