Landing run will be longer, too, as the true airspeed (and therefore groundspeed in zero wind) is higher. More momentum to dissipate.It's power to weight ratio. I checked the C-150 manual. It needs twice the runway at 7500 feet and 32°.
So an ultralight that can take off in 50 feet at sea level would need 100 feet. Landing run is about half. The problem is takeoff.
Can you fly down a valley after lift off?
