Brake systems on passenger aircraft are designed to be adequate for
7000 ft runways near sea-level so that unplanned landings don't pose a
risk, as long as there are no unusual worries about obstructions in the
glide path, runway weight loadings, poor braking conditions due to ice
or snow, very high temperatures, a flap problem, etc.
