    performance

    That depends. At sea level, 5 deg C with a 30 knot headwind, short well mowed grass and no mud and every thing working right all of them. Change some of these factors and things might get dicey. I have a 1965 Musketeer with an IO346. I would not like to operate from a 1900 foot grass strip on a regular basis. A 200 HP Musketeer with a constant speed prop would be better but they are rare.

    performance

    Make that a Sierra with three blade prop, engine that runs perfectly, field altitude below 2000' MSL, moderate or low temperature, newly mown grass, firm to hard soil with no recent rain. smooth, well drained runway and a few other things. I can often break ground in less than 1000 feet with my 165 hp and fixed pitch prop, but not with full fuel and 375 lbs of people. With most of our airplanes you need 50 lbs of baggage to counter balance 375 lbs of people or one in the back seat for a marginal take off. I remember well a 3000 foot takeoff roll at Albuquerque on a warm morning and only 40 gallons of fuel. Not a problem with 13,000 feet of concrete, but a real problem with 1,800 feet of grass.
