Runway Length

I found your article concerning runway length very interesting [Exit, October/November 2013]. As a retired pilot who is now in the aircraft acquisition business, I find that the vast majority of so-called professional pilots have no clue on this subject. I hope that the pilots reading this will take heed and start using their manuals. They might even discover terms like balanced field length, second-segment climb and density altitude. Thanks for your wake-up call.
