Hello everyone!
I wonder if a Saab 340B can be used on 800m runways with 33 pax for 30min flight...
Thanks,

SF340B considering 20'C at sea level, 27300lbs takeoff mass, 0 wind and 0% slope requires Takeoff field length of 3800ft (1.15x factor to 35ft).

So the answer is NO.

The only pressurised aircraft that I know that will satisfy the above requirement, fulfilling approved performance requirements, is the DHC-8 100/200.
Widerĝe`s Flyveselskap AS has been operating these aircraft successfully for many years on the Northwest coast of Norway with several runways boasting runway lengths of 800 metres.
