Is this that "hot and heavy" stuff I've heard about? I like to use the SGA DC-9-30, and it takes up nearly the whole runway at KDEN on takeoff. Does this have to do with the old engines or something else?

Make sure the payload is set correctly, since this may be caused by an overweight aircraft. Also make sure you have your flaps set.

Make sure your trim is set, too.

Some download aircraft have bad flight dynamics. Try it out somewhere else and with an empty plane. If that does not work, it is the flight dynamics. I had a DC-10 that had the same problem. To take off from MEM, I had to hold the brakes, power up the plane, then let go of the brakes as the engines reached their full RPM. I would even have to shake the wings at the end of the runway and pull up all the way to get it off the ground.

It ain't called the Mile High City for nothing. Density Altitude.

With the SGA DC-9/MD-80/717 series (or most T-Tailed aircraft in general), you MUST set trim. Your flying experience will be difficult and dangerous if you don't. In addition, the SGA flight dynamics of the pre-MD80 Douglas narrowbodies are programmed such that the engine spooling takes a much longer time to spool up (which is actually realistic on the real older DC-9 aircraft).

When taking off a high-altitude destination such as DEN, make sure you spool up before releasing brakes on the older DC-9 aircraft. Don't forget to set trim! (in case I haven't mentioned it already)
