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?
