High Performance Takeoff from MGGT

In an article on engine failure after takeoff at MGGT, theoretic calculations from the Cessna 172 POH were used. This numbers change with every airplane and pilot, so I decided to actually verify some the performance numbers, starting with how high I could climb above the runway.

This video shows a high performance takeoff from La Aurora MGGT with a Cessna Turbo 210 M. Hopefully soon, I will be able to simulate the turning back to the runway at a safe altitude.

The Cessna T210M made it to 6,000 FT or 1,000 FT AGL at the end of the runway. Not bad… Should I make every takeoff a high-performance takeoff?
