CE-525 Perf Question

Hello all,

I have an owner that is looking at using an early CE-525 out of a 3000ft paved strip with an elevation of 900ft at ISA+15. Can it be done???

As we don't have one of these its a bit difficult to get real world data, I asked a local tech rep but got nothing but shrugged shoulders and a dumb look because these guys are all ex Beechcraft since the merge.

So collective PPRuNe crew..... can it be done and what kind of mtow???

Thanks in advance.

I have asked APG in the past for a one off T/O / LDG distance sheet in the past and they were always helpful. Worth a try: APG: Aircraft Performance Group

3000 wont cut it. At 4000 it would be possible, but barely....

Just to qualify that. I have been in and out of Bembridge, fair oaks, Shoreham, and a few other airfields which are a performance challenge with no issues at all.

Hi all, thanks for the response's.

Just to qualify the question FO above has it right don't take max fuel..... I just need to know what weight can get out of a 3000ft strip.

Plane, pilot, boss & significant other is all that needs to get in/out...

What is a realistic weight for a 3000ft strip?

TB
