Did you know? IF tips PT1

Did you know that for every 1,000ft of density altitude in a light piston engine aircraft (C172) runway run increases by 25% ?

hope this helps for flight planning (: Juan Tavares

This is why runways at KMYL are so long

May I ask how this affects commercial jet aircraft? The article and the topic itself only cover general aviation, light aircraft, and you mention Denver International, an airport that does not handle light aircraft, as an example. Mind elaborating?

I don’t know how it effects large aircraft, maybe KDEN wasn’t the best option, but I know that it effects large aircraft, not as much though.

I’ve never seen a smiley face that way, this is revolutionary, I’ve only seen :)

thanks for the tip but like back to the smile, whaa
