Short strips

Does anybody fly his/her SR20 from short grass strips?
Among our hundreds of airfields in Sweden a great deal of them are 600 meters (2000ft) grass and sometimes less. They’re usually at sea level or perhaps a thousand feet above.

Wondering how a fully loaded SR20 performs in these conditions. Any experience in the community ?

What part of Sweden are you from? My wife is from Sweden and we visit friends/relatives in the Goteborg area every Dec.

Best regards,


I’m from the front side - Stockholm (your wife would argue that no doubt if she’s from Gothenburg). If you’re in Stockholm give me a buzz - we could go sightseeing or something.
