A day of fair-weather flying, tailwinds, and an airport restaurant with tasty barbecue makes for the perfect flying day. The after-lunch departure, however, has your full attention. The runway is short and sloped, and your takeoff weight and warmer temperatures won’t leave much of a margin. You can takeoff uphill and into the wind, or downhill with a tailwind. Not the options you were hoping for, and the departing airplanes don’t seem to be clearing the trees by a lot.
Would you depart? Which way? Watch the video for more details, then test your knowledge.
