  • Question 320500

    Hello (again)

    The runway is contaminated by compacted snow. How does it affect the Take-Off Distance (TOD) / Accelerate-Stop Distance (ASD)?
    Answer : Compacted snow does not affect the acceleration therefore the TOD, meaning TODR, stays the same however the ASDR will increase.


    Quite surprising to me, courses says that only ice doesn't affect acceleration during the take off run.

    Do they really manage to compact the snow that much and that evenly so it is considered like flat ice ?


    Cheers
Working...
