I am not sure this topic already has been discussed or not. Anyway, I would like to know, where I can find out how long the runway has to be for a aircraft to depart with MTOW.

Specially I would like to know following aircraft:

B 747-300
B 747-400

B 737-400
B 737-800

A 330-200
A 330-300

The length required would vary dramatically based on field conditions. You would have to include in your question the field elevation, altimeter, OAT, winds, runway slope, pressure altitude, and probably some obvious inputs that I cannot remember just now.

These charts by Boeing will help you get a rough idea:


Click on the appropriate aircraft type and then look at Section 3.0 - Airplane Performance

This will help you work out the runway length required for take-off based on airfield elevation, temperature, etc...

I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
