36.46.2 State the CAR Part 121/125 performance requirements for take-off distances.
121.207 Take-off distance
(a) Each holder of an air operator certificate shall ensure that, for each aeroplane it operates, the take-off weight does not exceed the maximum take-off weight specified in the aeroplane flight manual.
(b) When calculating the maximum take-off weight to determine compliance with paragraph (a), the certificate holder shall, assuming that the critical engine fails at VEF and using a single V1, ensure that—
- (1) the accelerate-stop distance required does not exceed the accelerate-stop distance available; and
- (2) the take-off distance required does not exceed the take-off distance available; and
- (3) any clearway forming part of the take-off distance available shall not exceed half the length of the take-off run available; and
- (4) in the case of a wet or contaminated runway, the take-off distance is calculated to the point at which the aircraft reaches a height of 15 feet above the take-off surface using a reduced V1; and
- (5) the take-off run required does not exceed the take-off run available using V1 for the rejected and continued take-off; and
- (6) on a wet or contaminated runway, the take-off weight does not exceed that permitted for a take-off on a dry runway under the same conditions.
