Abstract:

The usability of an aircraft for flights from dirt strips is characterized primarily by its taxiing ability, i.e. its ability to start up from a stop using its engine, accelerate and separate from the ground within the limits of the runway. The track which the aircraft leaves must not be deeper than a certain permissible limit. Calculations of taxiing ability are required for selection and maintenance of dirt air strips and determination of the possibility of performing flights from the strips. The article studies the influence of the characteristics of the aircraft and soil on taxiing ability and the method of calculating taxiing ability.
