I am doing a project for my Airport Management class where we need to redesign an airport which currently has a 2700 foot runway. The city will be home to an automotive plant and therefore the airport will be receiving cargo and pax. I have decided to suggest a longer runway (4500 feet), larger ramp and Jet-A1 fuel. I need to say why I want these changes. Right now I am saying that the longer runway will be able to accommodate the B1900 and Dash 8. Where would be the best place to look to find minimum runway lengths required for take off/landing of these aircraft? I tried the manufacturer's websites but I could not locate the information. The two publications we were suggested to review were Transport Canada's TP312 and TP1247.
Precision and specifics are very important in this assignment as the teacher has very high standards and basically "knows his shit" for lack of a better term. For anyone who went to or knows the Aviation program at Georgian, the teacher is Mr. S.
