Calculating Takeoff Distance - Cessna 150
This document is an example for how to calculate takeoff distance for a Cessna 150. Please note, this is an example only. Consult the Pilot Operating Handbook (POH) for your particular airplane for doing real-life calculations. This example assumes you are a Canadian pilot - the logic is all the same as everywhere else, the lookup locations are different.
To calculate landing distance, the following general steps need to be done.
- Calculate pressure altitude
- Calculate temperature at altitude
- Calculate headwind component
- Look up and calculate takeoff distance
