What is the minimum amount a feet it takes for teh major planes (e.g. 73X, 74X, 75X, 76X, 77X, A300, A310, A320 (entire series), A33X, A34X)....if anyone knows I would appreciate you spreading your knowledge...thanks

I'm pretty sure the minimum for a 744 is around 6000 feet. Not aure about the others.

Its very dependate upon the airports altitude, the temperature, the wind conditions, aircraft weight, etc..... But 737s and the like here at PHX usually use about 1/2 of the 12,000 ft long rwy.

Yeah, there are an enormus amount of variables to takeoff distance. Aircraft weight, engine choice, field elevation, temperature, humidity, runway slope, runway condition, etc. I assume you're looking for the usual, standard day, maximum takeoff weight, sea level, level dry runway. If I get some numbers, I'll post them.

quick list i pulled off an EDI newsgroup:


Here is a list of some aircraft takeoff/landing figures. Not a full list
but will be
updated. Other aircraft types will be added later.

They are all sea level/ISA figures, included typical pax loads
(usual 2/3 class split depending on type) and ranges for this takeoff length.

Based on most common engine choice so published figures can be variable with
different engine options. Range figures included which incorporate
maximum tankeage at this airfield performance, on some aircraft this means
the fitment of additional tanks at the detrement of cargo capacity.

Therefore this may clash with some figures you have seen published as they
normally only list range on standard max fuel.

Paragraph belows details EDI runway length, TORA,TODA,ASDA,LDA.

Find everything you need here:

Click on the aircraft type, and then open chapter 3.

Well done nighthawk for that list!!

Mia777 - It is a complicated question you are asking, as despite it looking like you are asking about one type of aircraft each variant has different figures depending on their set ups. A while ago someone asked specifically about the A300 runway requirements. After looking in the Janes civil aircraft 'bible' there were about 12 entries for the A300 - each one varying due to engine type fitted and loadings etc. So it's not that your questions get ignored it's just that the answer can be more complicated than your question may first appear.

I have landed in a 727 and stopped within 2,000 - 3,000 feet.

Well I wasn't looking for specifics, just a VERY approximate figure for each...oh well, thank you Nighthawk! Except I am American and have a little difficulty with visually perceiving meters (rather than feet), but again thanks!

737s can land in an airport like Detroit City airport (DET). The runway there isn't much longer than 5000 feet.

Citation-VI, 2000-3000ft for a 727 to stop? Are you sure about that? That seems rather short unless it were severely load-restricted. The distances listed are in metres by the way.
