Assignment Questions
Q1) Determine the runway length requirements for turbine powered aircraft.
Following aircraft performance characteristics are observed:
Normal take off:
Lift off distance
Distance to 11 m height
Engine failure:
Lift of distance
Distance to 11 m height
Engine failure aborted take off:
Accelerate stop distance
Normal landing:
Stop distance

= 2100 m
= 2400 m
= 2460 m
= 2730 m
= 2850 m
= 1500 m

Q2) Find out the required length for the airport of reference code 4 D(Field length =
1800 m), located at 450 m above mean sea level. The runway effective gradient is
0.5%. The monthly mean maximum and mean daily temperatures of the hottest
month of the year are 27oC and 18oC, respectively.
Q3) The weight characteristics (in lb) of a commercial aircraft are :
MSTOW= 220,000; MSLW=198,000; Zero Fuel Weight = 182,513; Operating
Empty Weight= 125,513; Max. Structural Payload = 57,000; Fuel Capacity =
Its assumed that the regulations governing the use of aircraft require 1.25 hours
reserve in route service. The aircraft has an average route speed of 540 m/s and an
average fuel burn of 22.8 lb/mi. Plot the payload versus range diagram
Q4)From the following data, determine the orientation of runway, assume that true
magnetic north is 10 degree East.
