Quoting EI321 (Thread starter): Im trying to find the following info. What is the minimum take off distance required for the following aircraft, fully loaded, in normal conditions (average temp, wind and height above sea level)?
Doesn't the FAA issue this "minimum runway length requirement" when it certifies the aircraft?

There is no such thing as Boeing vs Airbus as the queen of the skies has three engines, winglets and the sweetest nose!
It seems that from the graph shown on figure 3.3.1, most 777s (all versions) can, with minimum payload, leave the ground at just over 5,000 ft (I could be reading it incorrectly, however). Those numbers, of course, vary depending on weight, temperature/pressure, and altitude of the airfield - as well as flap usage (flaps 5/15/20). Hope this is helpful!
