Airport Toolbox 33 minimum runway length requirements are typically greater than those published by aircraft man- ufacturers. An example of assessing runway length needs for a particular aircraft is shown in Figure 5-2. 5.2.3 Runway Width The required runway width is based on the ARC of the critical aircraft and consideration of wind coverage. Per FAA guidance, the minimum runway width may be increased for additional cross- wind tolerance (as discussed in 5.2.4) or as required to support a precision approach. Minimum Local Conditions Elevation: 1,000' MSL Mean Maximum Daily Temperature: 85oF Critical Aircraft: Cessna Mustang used for Part 135 operations, at an approved destination airport Mustang Manufacturer Handbook Takeoff Distance (SL, ISA, MTOW): 3,110 feet Guidance Adjust runway length requirements using figure below for 100% fleet, FAA AC 150-5025-4B, Runway Length Requirements for Airport Design (while Mustang was not one of aircraft used by FAA to develop this table, its sea level standard day requirements are very similar to the general curves at 3,220 feet.) Resulting Runway Length 3,940 feet of Runway For Part 135 operations at approved destination airport- 4,730 feet (3,940 x 1.2 feet) of Runway Source: FAA AC 150/5325-4B, Runway Length Requirements for Airport Design, Cessna Mustang Specifications, Cessna Aircraft Company, and Aerofinity, Inc. analysis.
