Jet Departure from Courchevel!

Pretty scary if an engine were to fail prior to or even after V1.....

525 m and 18.5% runway gradient

I wouldn't call that rotate, that is chucking it of the end and praying the wings bite.

Wow!!

Well, I've added a new item of my list of things to do before I'm 50 - and one of them is hire a Citation to fly me into and out of Courchevel!

I love pilots with nerve and skill!

So, there's going to be a whole lot of reasons why that was possibly a bad (illegal?) idea...
But, man, that was awesome!

The landing at Courchevel is the easy bit compared with the take off. The only thing is, that once you are inside about a mile from the threshold, you are committed to land (always up the hill of course). There is no go around from that point on!
Good fun though.................In the correct aircraft!!

But don't most of those aircraft have ejection seats.
