# How long of a runway does a 737 need to land?

## How long of a runway does a 737 need to land?

6,800 feet
This is especially true for the critical aircraft – the Boeing 737-900 which requires a landing length of 6,800 feet under wet conditions and a takeoff length of 9,700 feet under maximum takeoff weight.

### What is the runway landing distance required?

about 1,000 feet (305 meters), regardless of runway condition and aircraft model (Figure 4, page 170). Extending the flare (i.e., allowing the aircraft to float and bleed excess airspeed) increases the landing distance.

What is the take off distance of a 747?

Range 5,650. Takeoff distance 10,450. Landing distance 6,920. The Boeing 747 was designed to carry large numbers of passengers at low cost.

How much runway is needed to land a 747?

Different aircraft types have different power/weight ratios that determine how quickly they can become airborne, and how much runway they need. The takeoff runway length requirement for the Airbus A380-800 is 2900 metres. For a Boeing 747-8 the figure is 3050 metres. For a 777-200, it’s 2440 metres.

## What is the minimum distance a 747 needs to land?

Ty Joseph, A liscensed private pilot with a commercial pilot permit. A Boeing 747-8 landing with 85% of its payload and 30% of its fuel, weighs 92% (8F) or 98% (8i) of its Maximum Landing Weight (MLW). The FAA/EASA Minimum runway length requirements for MLW landings are 7,500ft (~2,300m) for the 747-8F, and 6,750ft (~2,000m) for the 747-8i.

### How big of a runway does a Boeing 747 need?

The approx. 10,700 feet Wikipedia figure is for a fully loaded 747 at sea-level. The lighter the plane, the less runway it needs. The 7,500-foot runway at TNCM allows a takeoff at 84% of the maximum takeoff weight. (Not taking into account any climb restrictions, such as the big hill over there.)

Can A B 747 fly over a lake?

Even a stripped down B 747 would require more runway. In addition, the weight would damage the runway and taxiways at the destination since these are designed for a lighter category of aircraft. They ended up taking the plane apart and shipping it over the canals and a lake to its final home.

What’s the typical landing distance for a plane?

The following landing distance factors are typical: • Wet runway: 1.3 to 1.4; • Standing-water or slush-contaminated runway: 2.0 to 2.3; • Compacted-snow-covered runway: 1.6 to 1.7; and, • Icy runway: 3.5 to 4.5.
