# What is accelerate-stop distance required?

## What is accelerate-stop distance required?

The “accelerate/stop distance” is the total distance required to accelerate the twin engine airplane to a specified speed and, assuming failure of an engine at the instant that speed is attained, to bring the airplane to a stop on the remaining runway.

### What increases take off distance?

An uphill slope increases the take-off ground run, and a downhill slope increases the landing ground run. For example, an upslope of 2 percent increases take-off distance by about 15 percent and a 2 percent downslope decreases it by about 10 percent.

#### Does stopping distance include reverse thrust?

Usually the idle reverse thrust is applicable for normal situation in order to prevent wear and tear on aircraft,during emergency situations full reverse thrust is used to decrease the stopping distance and prevent runway overrun.

What is VLE speed?

VLO is the airspeed at which the landing gear can be safely operated—extended or retracted. VLE is the maximum speed at which you can fly with the gear extended.

How do you reduce takeoff distance?

A downhill slope increases the accelerating force, and therefore reduces the takeoff distance required, whereas an uphill slope reduces the accelerating force and increases the takeoff distance.

## What is the condition for normal takeoff?

A normal takeoff is one in which the airplane is headed into the wind; there are times that a takeoff with a tail wind is necessary. However, the pilot must consult the POH/AFM to ensure the aircraft is approved for a takeoff with a tail wind and that there is sufficient performance and runway length for the takeoff.

### What do you mean by accelerate / stop distance?

The “accelerate/stop distance” is the total distance required to accelerate the twin engine airplane to a specified speed and, assuming failure of an engine at the instant that speed is attained, to bring the airplane to a stop on the remaining runway.

#### What is the distance required to accelerate an airplane?

The “accelerate/go distance” is the total distance required to accelerate the airplane to a specified speed and, assuming failure of an engine at the instant that speed is attained, continue takeoff on the remaining engine to a height of 50 feet.

What is the all engine operating takeoff distance?

(iii) Is such that exceptional skill is not required to control the airplane. (d) All engines operating takeoff distance. The all engine operating takeoff distance is the horizontal distance required to takeoff and climb to a height of 50 feet above the takeoff surface under the procedures in FAR 23.51 (a).

When to discontinue the takeoff and stop distance?

With such a slight margin of safety (305 feet) it would be better to discontinue the takeoff and stop if the runway is of adequate length, since any slight mismanagement of the engine out procedure would more than outweigh the small advantage offered by continuing the takeoff.
