[-] Short field package for B737-600/700/800/900/900er ?

Why not add that to the game?
It has a lot of advantages especially for the airlines which are based in Sao Paulo Congonhas or Santos Dumont in Rio de Janeiro and other airports with short runways to give better performance and increased payload.
For those who don't know a lot about SFP here is some information about it:
It is an optional package for 737NG which allows operators fly with increased payload in and out of airports with runways less than 5000ft long.
How?
1. Two-position tail skid that enables reduced approach speeds
2. Sealed leading-edge slats that provide increased lift during takeoff
3. increased flight spoiler deflection on the ground that improves takeoff and landing performance

And to prove that they can actually do follow the link below

Highly doubt that anybody has mentioned this before but correct me if it was.

Modifying runway performance with the newly added 'upgrades' package isn't possible so far. And if this is the only model, then I wouldn't see the benefit of adding that.

Anything between 5000ft and 3000ft.

A318/319, B737-300/500, Lockheed L-188A Electra are STOL aircraft as well and couple of regional aircraft including ERJ170/190.
