Required Runway Length For Beech 1900?

Can anyone tell which runway length is required for a Beech 1900 under "normal" circumstances, i.e. 75% of its max payload and fuel, sea level, normal pressure?

I am asking because I had a discussion with someone whether some of the smaller airports in the Britanny (Bretagne) part of France were accessible by scheduled B1900. Runway lengths are all around 700-900 meters, i.e. approx. 2100-2700 ft. I know there are other considerations, but I would just like to know for runway length.

I'm sorry I don't have any definite numbers but I have seen a few divert to my home airport when YVR was fogged in. Our longest runway is 3500ft and they didn't seem to have any trouble. But I'm sure somebody here has the real numbers for you.

This will probably be more specific:

I know it is possible to do MTOW near sea level with about 3800 ft. 2500 might be theoretically possible, but not legal due to accelerate stop requirements.

Are tje ice vanes deployed or retracted?

Ok seriously, the 1900 was the class airplane, I don't have the charts on me at the moment, but the 1900C was our class airplane for dispatch school last month. I don't see why a 1900 should perform any worse than a Metro, and my minumum planning length was 3000 feet.

Anyway get your hands on the FAA testing suppplement for the ATP and ATX tests. The charts for figuring that stuff out is in it. And since it is a GPO published document, it isn't expensive.
