(7) Configuration. Mark (4 or X) the
appropriate configuration as determined on the back of
the TOLD card. For this example, it was decided to
takeoff with the Flaps UP.
(8) Takeoff Field Length Required. For this
example, enter the actual ACC/STOP distance of
5,900 feet for a 12,600-pound aircraft.
If the weight to accomplish an ACC/STOP had
been the most restrictive weight, then we would enter
the field length that was used on the back of the TOLD
card to determine the maximum takeoff weight to
achieve an acceleration and stop maneuver (6000

In this example, the takeoff weight is planned at

As already stated, Accelerate-Go distance is
advisory only. However, a point 35 feet above the end
of the departure runway is normally the point from
which climb gradients are calculated. Therefore,
regardless of all other prudent performance planning, if
an engine fails at V1 on this example departure the
aircraft will not be capable of clearing all obstacles. If
weather conditions are at or near minimums, the crew
should consider some other options to assure the
capability to accomplish an acceleration and go
maneuver such as:
Decreasing the load and/or fuel.
Reducing takeoff weight and using flaps 40%.
Delaying the departure for more favorable
