This video provides pilots and operators an overview of the topic of declared distances. It defines these distances and how they relate to the part 25 takeoff & landing runway requirements. It demonstrates the significance of declared distances in meeting runway and airport design standards. It also discusses the applicability of declared distances during the actual takeoff and landing operation. Finally, the video also cautions pilots against overreliance in FMS takeoff and landing performance computations where the stored runway information does not include a runway’s declared distances.
