After the technical demonstrations, several performance
options were studied to improve the takeoff weight capability from Paro. These included additional optimization of the turn procedures, increased takeoff thrust, use of alternate forward center of gravity positions, and installation of a weather station to allow use of Druk Air procedures B and C for runway 15. Using these procedures, the 737-700 can take off from Paro with 114 passengers and 4,850 lb (2,200 kg) of payload. Other enhancements that were studied, such as potential runway extensions and the removal of obstacles surrounding the airport, will further improve safe operation at Paro.
