what airplane has the shortest runway length in terms to its size? also which has the shorter runway length b744 or a340? also what airplane no matter what size(but larger than 30 seats) has the shortest runway lenght? thanks in advance
It all depends on how heavy the aircraft is, what the temperature is and what the airport altitude is. As for the A/C with the shortest length, the Dash 7 would have to be right up there with it's STOL capabilities. The Hercules military transport with JATO would definately be there for short takeoffs but that's an oddball case.
