Runway Analysis (eLearning)

On most departures performance is not an issue, but extreme altitude, weather, and obstacles could cause the need for alternative planning. Runway analysis evaluates the interaction of aircraft performance and runway/obstacle data. Your limiting weight for takeoff as well as landing may be determined by using your aircraft's AFM performance section, the particular characteristics of the runway in front of you, and an obstacle database.
