hi all !

would like to get some infos, if Your airplane (medium up to GLEX) is legal to land and t/o on this privat strip, dry/wet.

3760ft x 76ft (1140m x 23m) PCN 14/R/C/X/U
SL, 30°, 4pax+400lb bag., fuel to fly 180nm after this landing, 70nm alternate + reserves.

we are operating a 900ex here, would be very interesting how other biz jets perform here - it´s a resort-runway.

thank´s a lot ! - Toolowflyer.

@ transmach, thank´s a lot for posting this data ! - incredible values for the G550...

...but also thank´s for the other replys, i can imagin (and respect) that not everybody is comfortable with this size of runway - others seeing it more like challange...

Taking a G550 into CRQ made me "more attentive" than usual. That "challenge" was sufficient.

If I wanted to test the limits of both the airplane and myself, I would have become a test pilot.

Just be cause you CAN do it, doesn't mean you SHOULD do it.

CRQ has 1100 more feet! I used to fly a Hawker in there and it was always "fun." Anyone who takes a large jet (or a small jet for that matter) into a 3700 foot strip is asking for trouble. Sure you can do it, the numbers say you can, but one hiccup and you are toast! Also, what kind of weight limits are there on that small strip? This sounds like a salesman trying to be a pilot.

I flew several trips in the Citation Ultra into Buttonville, Ontario (CYXZ) and do a circle to land from an NDB approach for runway 15 which was 3,900 feet. With a good cross wind this was an interesting runway... not to mention obstacles on both ends. I thought it was a little tight myself. But each time we visited there was no shortage of G550s on the ramp. I'd be interest to know how the GLEX compares to the G550 from this runway in the discussion. I imagine the GLEX runs circles around the G550 on/off this runway...

Our Bravo would do it dry and wet sometimes

These resort private runways often have large slopes and slopes combined with rain ruin everything (if you actually do the math).

Not sure how you guys, and you know who you are, land at SMO runway 21 when its wet...
