The Cessna 172S POH only has Short Field Takeoff Distance tables. How do pilots determine ground roll for a normal takeoff on a long field with hard surface?
The examples in the POH only deal with short field takeoff. Similar thing with chapter 10 in the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge. It's either short field takeoff or referring to charts that don't exist in the Cessna 172S POH.
Do pilots look up the short field ground roll, apply the adjustment factor for headwind and apply another adjustment factor?
The POH says, on page 5-4 "...keeping in mind that the distances shown are based on the short field takeoff technique. Conservative distances can be established by reading the chart at the next higher value for weight, altitude and temperature."
Does that mean to use the chart, but use the row for the next highest PA and the column for the next next highest temp when determining normal takeoff ground roll?
I've searched this forum and haven't found anything applicable.
