Technique - Soft Field Takeoff

Squishy does it


Not every runway is sealed smooth and black with asphalt. Some are paved but covered with slippery snow or wheel-clogging mud; some are dirt; some are grass; some are simply in poor shape with holes and cracks. Now you’ve got to take off, and your objective is to minimize the drag on your airplane’s wheels and get off the ground as quickly as possible.
