Well I know I flew LHR-EDI on 11th June I flew BA 1462 on G-CPEM a 757-200 and it was about a 15-20 second takeoff roll off 27L with a very fast 757 type of climb. What about other people. What are the shortest takeoff rolls that you have experienced?

Just about empty BA 744 DOH-BAH - rocket like take off.  Smile

Got me thinking about landings.

Once on the ground and stopped in CHS, I realized the PIC never used the brakes. Runways is very long and I was in a close-to-empty CRJ. Pilot(s) actually had to apply power to get moving again and taxi off the runway.

Having never landed in glider, I guess it was as close to a Space Shuttle landing as is possible and quite enjoyable compared to usual land, brake, thrust reverse.

Hey!


Well I don't know in Jet type what was the shortest but I took like 12 sec to be in the Colombian air, these was on an Aires Dash 8-100 at a little airport in Malaga in our way to Bucaramanga.


Cheers

Shortest take off roll on a jet was on a BMI A321 LHR - MAN. We were running late and as we entered the runway the engines spooled up and we were away. There was a huge input of rudder a few seconds later and then we were up after roughly 15 seconds.

Shortest take off roll in a prop was on an InterCanadien BE1900D YYZ - YGK. I was totally unprepared for it. We lined up and waited, the brakes were released and 7 seconds later we were climbing at the steepest angle i've ever experienced. I almost looked out the window to see if we had any JATO bottles attatched!!! One hell of a good flight.

Cheers

LCY - GLA in a BAe146. Short runway so you have to be airbourne quickly - and we were! Those little planes have some serious thrust behind them, at least for take-off if not cruising speed.

Surprisingly enough for me it was on a Monarch 757-200 flying LPA to LGW. The 757 taxied to the end of the runway and on turning for take off you get feel the power from those lovely Rolls Royce engines being applied. Hardly had the aircraft completed its turn before it thundered down the runway. Despite a full load (every single seat was taken and it was a charter configuration) and hot climate, the roll was very short and in under 20 seconds the aircraft was airborne. That was some take off. The only thing wrong about it was that is was over before it started!

The GB Airways A321 took over a minute to take off from the same runway on my next LPA-LGW flight. It had a lighter passenger load, and the take off was on a winter's evening.

BCAL,

Maybe the GB Airways A321 decided to make a Reduced Thrust Take-off as the conditions, as you said, were favorable for that. The Monarch B757 had to use all its thrust due to the weight and the hot weather, but i guess the fuel quantity on board was just enough to do the trip safely !!!

I have already seen a B736 of Tunisair getting airborne from the quarter (1/4) of Monastir's 2.950m runway. The airplane must have made a roll of 500/650m.

My shortest take off was with KLM-Cityhopper on a Fokker-50 between Rotterdam and Paris CDG! about 11 seconds!

LGW/LAP is well within the range of a 757. Strangely enough it seems that LGW/LAP/LGW is also with the range, as I have never seen those 757s being refueled at LAP for the return journey. I would have thought that with the fuel for the return journey in the tanks, the 757 must be heavy when landing at LAP?

BCAL,

I think it's within the Monarch fuel policy to minimize ordering fuel out of UK airports. Their 757s and A300s rarely refuel at Monastir,Tunisia although the entire journey, UK/MIR/UK reaches 7 hrs sometimes. As far as landing is concerned, i don't think that the weight exceeds the Max.Landing Weight (MLW) authorized, because regulations are stringent on that.

12 seconds on a Northwest 757-200 from DTW-EWR. 20 passengers on the plane, almsot no checked bags, and minimum fuel for the ~450 mile flight.

Was a blast!

Shortest jet: FL 717 on an ATL-BOS flight. We were maybe 3000' down the runway when we took off.

Shortest Turboprop: OH EMB-120 out of MCO. It seemed like we had just started our takeoff roll when we were airborne.

Last week on a KL 744 from CGK to SIN!

About 60 pax, empty cargo bay ( combi 744), and not a lot of fuel for the 1.15h hop to
SIN, all that combined with a full throttle take-off. Rotate at 120 knots.
This was very impressive. I was glad I decided to join the guys in the flightdeck
for that event.

The acceleration force was so mighty, given the fact this is such a massive aircraft.
What a huge difference compared to a fully loaded 744, when there doesn't seem
to be an end to the take-off roll.

Skysurfer -

Neat thought!! Maybe by adding JATO to planes like the 1900D (which I enjoy flying, by the way) regionals could have a whole new world of airport possibilities for service!!! (lol)

Seriously, I love watching films of C-130's with JATO. Awesome!!

While I've never experienced it, I'd imagine that this guy could have a fairly short take-off roll  Wink/being sarcastic

Shortest I've actually experienced would be an US Express ERJ-145 from CAE to CLT. Only a few pax, light luggage load, light fuel load, felt like a rocket.

Ultralight - while flying solo exceptional performance, with one passenger or instructor lot of drag added specially when instructor is with you on the right hand side

Other one, shortest on PIA's Twin Otter, very short take off and landing Roll

On 747 from Saudia to Karachi, just 63 passengers in 747, very short take off run

The shortest I ever experienced was less than 50 metres in a Twin Otter, not sure about how long it took though. The pilot was pretty crazy, he took off on the taxiway to the runway. It was a small airport out in the pacific islands. The along the side of the runway is beach - just lifted off over it! Scared the hell out of the passengers.

DeHavilland DH-89 Dragon Rapide out of Duxford...about 6 seconds from start to airborne, if that! What's that, about 300 feet or so? Just guessing, but it was definitely no more than 6 or 7 second roll...and on grass to boot!
