AAIB investigation to Airbus A319-111, G-EZFP

Incorrect takeoff performance calculation, Lille Airport, France, 9 May 2016.

Summary:

During pre-flight preparation performance figures were calculated for a departure from Lille Airport using the full length of Runway 08. The subsequent takeoff was from Intersection Tango 5, from which less than the full length was available. The error was not revealed by the crew’s standard cross-check because they misread the runway length, possibly as a result of fatigue.
