That's not the case with a low-visibility takeoff
: You have no way of knowing for certain if you're up to speed for an IMC departure until you're actually in the air--when it's too late to do anything about it.

Only airplanes with 20 or more seats must have the capacity to clear obstacles at the end of a runway if an engine fails during takeoff
