is there any calculator/screen out there that says how many passengers you can carry for a given runway length? Being a bit silly I picked an Argentina base airport that nobody is else is at and has some nice demand and numbers etc, but I have now realised it has a 2100M runway. My A300 which asks for about 2600M gets off nicely but is limited to 198Y rather than the 260Y it could do.
I'm thinking of leasing a DC8 for a year as it has the range I need, but it requires 2900M of runway. Before I commit to a lease, how can I work out what passenger load I'll be allowed? I've been through the lease screen right up to pushing the OK button and it doesn't do anything.
Also, is AWS clever enough to know that when coming from a large airport with long runways, say ATL, to my little jungle strip, then it could carry more passengers since it's landing with little fuel? I don't think so as the route screens say 198Y limitation both ways for my A300..
