Question Aircraft Field Performance

Greetings all,

I need a website where I can compare different aircraft performance. Cessna vs. Gulfstream etc. Some websites offer some brochures but the information I really need is landing distance based on a given weight at a different runway altitude.

Just ask here. What aircraft, what weight, what landing elevation, temperature, pressure, gradient etc and I'm sure someone will be along and give you some numbers.

I checked, and unfortunately they don't have the Falcon 8X. Only 7X.

Take off for a Falcon 8X. MSL, 35 and 40 Celsius OAT. Only 1000 m available. With a max payload how much fuel would it take just for a takeoff? Field is SDAG. I've been asked this, but I am not a Falcon 8X pilot and a POH is hard to find on the net. I believe that only 5-10% of fuel would be max allowed for a short trip to SBGL or SBRJ nearby, but you would take off already in an emergency and would not be aware of that. Loss of one engine would reduce flight time from 30 to 15min tops or any other factor such as both airports closed for IFR ops etc. Very risky in my opinion. My research showed that the biggest jet that operates in such a field is the Citation Sovereign.
