Is it possible to calculate the ground roll and distance to climb to 1000 ft in a Cessna 172S?
Why? I live near a small airport with 2 active flight schools. As part of a new noise abatement procedure the circuit path will be moving from 500 ft altitude to 1000 ft altitude with no turns below 1000 ft weather permitting. I'd like to be able to calculate some typical scenarios that will result in determining approximately where the end of the departure leg and the start of the crosswind leg of the circuit will happen to understand what the net change will be. If I can get the ground distances, I can use the scale line drawing tools on a Google Earth satellite image to draw in some eastward and westward ranges for where the crosswind leg might start, for example on a typical sunny early September morning like today.
I'm not a pilot. I'm a retired computer systems techno-geek who doesn't mind plunking parameters into formulae to crank out numbers. I'm just having trouble finding the formula or reference chart.
I've downloaded a Cessna 172S Pilot handbook and have the performance info. I can get current weather conditions for the airport thru their AWOS or from aviationweather.gov. I have a binder half full of reference material, sample pilot exam questions, definitions and terminology. I have the current aerodrome chart for the airport. I'm starting to muddle my way thru calculating the ground roll and distance to clear a 50 ft obstacle using that reference material.
What I can't find is anything that extrapolates that and figures out the distance along the ground to climb to what is essentially a 1000 ft obstacle.
Can anyone help?
