Rules for determining takeoff and landing distances of STOL transport airplanes equipped with powered-lift systems are proposed and discussed. These rules related to speed margins and maneuvering capability required for safe operations and to the procedures for computation of required runway lengths. The most significant difference between the proposed rules and conventional performance rules is that speed margins and maneuver g - margins should be based on the airplanes capability with power on. Procedures for calculation of powered-lift STOL performance are stated in detail.
