(b) Takeoff distance available (TODA): The length of the takeoff run available plus the length of the clearway, if provided. (c) Accelerate-stop distance available (ASDA): The length of the takeoff run available plus the length of the stopway, if provided. (d) Landing distance available (LDA): The length of runway which is declared available and suitable for the ground run of an aeroplane landing.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
