I used to fly a 4-seater Rallye Minerva, and, if I recall correctly, the recommended
short field take off involved putting on full flaps (30°) just before liftoff
speed (the flaps were operated by a handbrake sort of affair) and then basically flying level until an appropriate speed was attained.
While no takeoff was relaxing, this procedure was a little unnerving (it took
quite a bit of effort to latch the flaps in, and there wasn't always a second
chance), and certainly not one I would use on a regular basis. A crosswind added to
the tension as the liftoff speed was fairly slow (something like 42KT).
This was a lot more work than I would want to do when operating from a busy
airport, and generally reserved for shorter 'fields' (100m, yep, you read that
