Airline's 767 T/O & Landing Ops Specs

Fri Apr 06, 2012 10:39 pm

Does anyone know what the airlines' Ops Specs for the 767 is for limiting take off and landing at airports? I see there was an AA 767 in LIH with a runway of 6500 feet and 767s operate out of OGG's 6995 foot runway. Of course the 767 has been in LGA (7003') and DCA (was 6869' now 7169').

On a side note - When did DCA go from 6869' to 7169' and how did they get the extra 300 feet?

For a 767-300ER, it is about a 40,000lbs payload penalty for a 7,000ft runway at sea level. It's a hit in payload, but for domestic operations outside of Hawaii - East Coast/Midwest the additional payload is not needed. 767s operating from Hawaii to the west coast of the US rarely come close to needing MTOW.

From LGA or DCA, the 767 can fly anywhere within the perimeter without too many problems. Neither airport is a significant cargo airport, so with typical passenger loads, the 767 has no problem.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

From what I understand, AA's OGG-DFW flight is right on the edge as far as takeoff performance on the one runway direction that has a slight upslope. I think they need to do a Packs Off takeoff to do it without a payload penalty.

This is the longest 767 flight from OGG that I have seen.

A basketball team is hardly a full payload flight. Typically the basketball teams fly on A320s, but that's not an option to Hawaii, so I don't' think it is a good comparison.

You're right, I wish we knew how many were on it, but it was probably light.

Are you sure you mean payload?
I can understand a hit in Take off weight, but whats payload got to do with it?
Max payload for a B767 is around 65000 lbs, so losing two thirds of that is massive.

It's still 2094m on my charts (Feb2012), which is 6870'. Perhaps you looked at the TODA ?

Hmm... 6000ft can do 155tons TOW, and 7000ft can do 162tons TOW, based on zero slope, zero wind, dry runway, flap20, 15C OAT. No derates, and PW4060 engines, no obstacles...

Airnav has it listed at 7169 feet:

http://www.airnav.com/airport/KDCA

Though measuring it on Google Maps gives me 6880 feet (though that may be an old photo).

Here you go:

Shifting one runway safety area 300 feet to the south

That would do it.

When Obama was inaugurated DL ran domestic 763s between DCA and ATL.

Thank you all for the information. I hear an airport that handles charters is looking at pursuing NFL charters as well. This airport sees everything from 737s, 320s, MD80s, and 757s but was not sure a 767 could make it. It appears the 767 would be able to operate from this airport. I did not see, but does anyone know the penalty and credit given to runway slope and wind? The airport in question runway is around 6850' with a slight slope (about 14' difference between either runway end).

You also have to worry about obstacles and engine out departure procedures. Max takeoff weight isn't just limited by field length.

Good point. I think there are obstacles around this airport but not sure if they are an issue. I wonder if there is a chart that would show that limitation?

For DCA? No obstacles for rwy 19, but 01, more or less you'd be limited to 150tons Obstacle Clearance TOW for obstacle clearance on all the take off flap settings for 763ER with PW4060.

Several points, some mentioned already, some not:
-The ATOW - actual take-off weight is the consideration. This of course means that fuel is a part of it. Less flighttime = less fuel, that means either more payload (if limited) or better performance. If you take bare minimum of fuel, long-range aircraft can take-off at surprisingly tight spots even with full payloads. Sometimes you can see that planes take-off full of payload for a short flight somewhere with a long runway for fuel, typical at SXM, or at least used to be. Like KLM 747s that used to go to Curacao I think.

-You also have to consider obstacles. If you have 5miles long runway, but there is a hill on the end, you are more often than not out of luck. However the length helps with accelerate-stop performance and landing performance, so it might still make sense.

-Considering obstacles, flap setting is important. Lower flaps means better climbout, but more field required. And vice versa. This means that airports on flatlands, or heading out to the sea can benefit from high flap take-offs, which will mean that while you are basically crawling up from the ground (thank you earth for being round), you can lift off relatively soon. OTOH, in mountainous areas, use as low a flap setting as practical, and while it will look like you are accelerating on the runway for an eternity, once you are airborne, you climb like a homesick angel.

I would not think payload would be an issue with an NFL team on a 767 that is flying domestically. NFL teams have a 53 man roster with 40 or so coaches and support staff. I would guess their equipment would be around 5000-6000 pounds and fuel between cities such as DEN-STL or IAH-MCI (typical short hops for NFL teams) would be relatively light. That being said, are light weights factored into obstruction clearances and single-engine operations?

The obstruction clearance says that at weight X, you will clear the obstacle; and thus, you can not takeoff at a weight heavier than X.

That is of course relevant at V1 cut. Most, if not all, performance criteria are computed around this worst-case scenario (engine failure at V1 or close enought to V1 for the airplane to reach V1 just as reaction time passes)

It has to AFAIK.
Take the lowest allowable TOW for obstacle clearance, and field limitation. Both taking account for single engine fail at or near V1.
And since it's a Boeing, also take account climb limit weights if there are no obstacles, usually obstacle clearance weights are lower than climb limit weights anyways.
