Data is advisory and includes 15% safety margin and 1,500 ft. air distance from threshold to touchdown.


The approved method is to use the LPR (Landing Performance Report). The format is: LPR4ATL27L. The runway condition varies from 1=Poor to 6=Dry.

This is not an approved method of determining landing distances. This was developed without the approval or cooperation of Delta Air Lines or ALPA.

This is in the early stages. I have done no more than TLAR ("That Looks About Right") standard checking on a couple of cases. I have not thorougly tested it.

I retain rights to the code which was developed on my own time, but the underlying data belongs to Delta Air Lines. However, my terms for sharing it are pretty liberal.

My purpose in developing this is that such a tool should be available in the cockpit. While I retain rights to the code, I am quite willing to share the code and concept if you contact me. My purpose is not to sell this, but to demonstrate the concept of having a quick way of finding landing performance information from a tablet. Please note that the underlying data belongs to Delta Air Lines and is not mine to offer.


This ER uses the ODM data effective 01Jul16. The LR uses the ODM data effective 23Sep16. Thus, one could argue that the underlying data is FAA accepted.

I have not included flaps 25, because it is not really being used at the current time and I did not want to spend the extra time to add it.

It is necessary to enter a weight and altitude. You may leave other values blank if appropriate. A blank temperature will default to ISA for the altitude and all other values will default to zero.

Headwind and tailwind corrections to ODM data use the steady state value. The Vref additive is calculated using one half of the steady state headwind and all of the gust. The gust crosswind component is presented for crosswind limitations and is not used for data purposes.
