    Expect lightplanes (general aviation single engine airplanes) to give a takeoff distance based on sea level, standard temperature and pressure and a maximum certificated weight - They also often include a distance measured to an obstacle, often 35 ft height (10 meters high) - See if there is a correction for a wind component -

    Transport category airplanes measure takeoff performance differently, on charts and graphs, so I will not go over that subject, unless you want a long explanation...!
