Hi, I am creating this topic because yesterday I flew an Emirates 777-200LR from Dubai to Geneva, the flight was pretty much empty (40 pax), and we had an incredible take off roll of 23 seconds, so what was your shortest takeoff roll ?
Not sure I’m one to count.
Mine would be when I flew Cardiff-London City with Flybe on a Dash-8. 35 minute flight which had 13 passengers and 4 crew, we rotated after about 6-8 seconds.
I don’t the time of the takeoff roll. I am too focused on the wonderful sensation of flight :D
In a Bell 206 it was about 1 second, pretty quick if you ask me
Mine was onboard a Ryanair flight from Treviso to Stansted. The flight was full but we rotated pretty quick and it was a steep takeoff
Took off a Cessna 150 in roughly 50 meters a month ago with 20 knots of full headwind. I only had one notch of flaps, rotation speed at 55 knots.
In Johannesburg, heavies take off before the light bodies, odd.
Easy jet a319 took roughly 15seconds to rotate with full passengers and luggage
920 feet. Full loaded 172. 30 knots of headwind
I saw a TAAG Angola B772 takeoff from a runway when I was sitting in a restaurant at JNB, at one point I thought it wasn’t going to become airborne, it took so long to rotate.
0 seconds when I went to Mars.
Ha, beat ya all.
Mine was onboard a Thai Airways A330-300 from Wattay (Vientiane, Laos) to Suvarnabhumi (Bangkok, Thailand). The runway was short and TG usually operated the flight on 734’s, so it was a full throttle takeoff that didn’t take long to get airborne.
Never experienced that, which restaurant were you at?
In an Airbus A320-200, didn’t take much time to rotate, but couldn’t count the time exactly.
Ooh, I can think of it, but not the name! That 777 took ages though. I’ll try and find it now…
Mine was 15 seconds in a 747
2 Second in my glider. Winchlaunch, from 0-100km/h in 2 seconds 😏
Ugh I can smell that glider pilot pride from here. 😉
I think this thread was meant for aircrafts that do not have limited go-around abilities! 😜
They didn’t say anything about helicopters 😉
