Sec. 23.55 - Accelerate-stop distance.
For each commuter category airplane, the accelerate-stop distance must be determined as follows:
(a) The accelerate-stop distance is the sum of the distances necessary to --
(1) Accelerate the airplane from a
standing start to V
(2) Accelerate the airplane from V
(3) Come to a full stop from the point
at which V
(b) Means other than wheel brakes may be used to determine the accelerate-stop distances if that means --
(1) Is safe and reliable;
(2) Is used so that consistent results can be expected under normal operating conditions; and
(3) Is such that exceptional skill is not required to control the airplane.
