Takeoff Distance

Postby Jim Hardin » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:43 am

Granted, a Martin 4-0-4 is not an LSA but this writeup in Wikipedia caught my attention. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_4-0-4

They list a TO distance to 50 feet as 1980!

That is mind boggling when looking at 44,900 lbs max TO weight.

I seem to recall an aquaintence who told me he could fly it from our 2200 foot field. He never did it.
