This morning I measured the take-off and landing roll. My plane weighs 1046lbs, and was carrying me (180lbs) and my friend (200lbs), no bags, and about half fuel. Field elevation is 5500ft and the surface is asphalt. The prop is set-up for climb side. This morning was ~70F -- altimeter setting 29.94.

Take off was just within 450 yards using short field technique. After that climb was a healthy 1600fpm.

Landing roll was about 300 yards, and I was going easy on the brakes.

I'll try again in the next few days with just me in the cockpit.
