This strip is 7400' MSL. The density altitude today was 10,300, and the 701 used less than half the "runway" you see behind the plane to take off.

I paced it off and the clear area is around 900'. I'd estimate I was airborne in about half that.

Excuse me if this is my second message (I thought I had posted earlier, but I don't see my post), but I'm curious about how long the landing and takeoff rolls were--any estimates? The perspective and lack of scale make it difficult to judge. I'd like to hear more about high altitude performance.

Unmodified?  Rotax 912S?  Wow.

That is what I call a bush strip.

Thanks Awesome. I spent the evening attaching my slat bracket to the nise ribs. I got 4 of them done. They turned out great!
