Generally how high and how fast do airplanes travel?
A typical commercial aircraft will travel at around 35,000 feet and will be moving at an airspeed of roughly 500-550 miles per hour, depending on the plane.

Maximum Speed: 568mph / MACH .86 (913km/h , 439kn) at 35,000 ft. * Maxiumum Cruise Speed: 530mph / MACH .80 (851km/h , 470kn) at 35,000ft. Link: http://en.wikipedia.org…/wiki/Boeing_767#Specifications
normally, a 747 flies about 500 knots, or 580 mph, at about 33,000 ft. depending on the weight, it normally flies between FL290 and FL410. it is certified for 45,100'. (the sp…eed doesn't change that much with altitude or weight -- it usually is a function of trying to save fuel)
It depends on the type of plane. Small, one-engine propeller planes (reciprocating engines) fly at speeds of 80 to 200 mph (130 to 320 km/hr). Jet airliners at cruising altitu…de average around 500 to 600 mph (800 to 960 km/hr). Military turboprops cruise at 350 mph (560 km/hr) and jet fighters routine exceed the speed of sound (768 mph or 1235 km/hr at sea level).. Because of their lower weight compared to engine power, some private jets travel faster than large passenger jet planes. 500 to 700mph It depends on the airplane. A Piper Archer will do about 135mph, a King Air will do around 300, an airliner like a 757 will go about 600, jet fighters will go about 1200 for real short distances and an SR-71 will go about 1800. The SR-71 broke the record at Mach 3.2 Aircraft fly at many different speeds, depending on their use and construction. The first aircraft flown by Wilbur and Orville Wright traveled just 7 mph (11 kph). The speed of flight for modern planes can vary from less than 60 mph (96 kph) to more than 2000 mph, and manned rocket aircraft have reached 4500 mph. Ultralight aircraft, which in some cases are merely powered hang-gliders, can cruise at less than 35 mph. A Cessna or Piper private plane flies at between 80 and 140 mph. Your average Boeing 737-300 passenger airliner will travel at around 500 mph when at cruising altitude. Many military jets can fly at supersonic speeds between Mach 1 and Mach 2 (750-1500 mph), but heavier bombers such as the B-52 and B-2 are subsonic aircraft. it ranges the piper Cherokee (the slowest aircraft I could think of) flies at about 200 km/h and the fastest COMMERCIAL airliner (the concord) could reachmach 2.23= 2 731.84812 km/h and then the fastest human controlled aircraft ever was the sr-71 blackbird at 3,530+ km/h or mach 3.2sorry about all the different fonts and sizes I used about 4 different websites to find all this information it ranges the piper Cherokee (the slowest aircraft I could think of) flies at about 200 km/h and the fastest COMMERCIAL airliner (the concord) could reachmach 2.23=2 731.84812 km/h and then the fastest human controlled aircraft ever was the sr-71 blackbird at 3,530+ km/h or mach 3.2sorry about all the different fonts and sizes I used about 4 different websites to find all this information . There is a whole variety of airplanes, but if you are talking about Jet Airliners, the average speed is about 80% of the speed of sound, in the aviation industry this is called Mach .8. The actual speed the differs from type to type, if you look at the Boeing 747, the maximum speed is mach .85, the Boeing 737 Classic on the other hand has a max of around mach .74.. The speed that a mach number relates to differs with altitude, temperature and air density. But in general terms, if a plane flies Mach .8 at 37000 feet, the speed is around 850 km/h, 520 m/h or 450 knots.. Hope it helps. Obviously it varies depending on the plane, weather, payload, etc. Typically a light aircraft will do 150-350 mph A jet 500-700 mph And a military aircraft up to 2,000mph Concorde used to do up to 1,555mph it goes about 500 miles an hour when it gets in the air but before it takes off it will get to 180 mph to get airborn but it can go faster the faster it goes the easier it is to take off and if you are planing on stealing a plane good luck!!!!!!!! dont do it or we will come for you
Generally it depends on the weight of the airplane. Light airplane like Cessna 172 can take off at about 60mph, heavy airplane like Boeing 747 needs 180mph to get airb…orne! * Speeds vary depending on type of aircraft, weight, and enviromental conditions. Takeoff speeds are referred to as "V1" and "V2". V2 is the speed at which the aircraft can safely become airborne. V1 is the "point of no return" during a takeoff. In other words, if an aircraft experiences a problem at a speed below V1, the aircraft may safely abort takeoff. If the speed is above V1, the aircraft will in most circumstances commence with takeoff regardless of a problem.
600 miles an hour
Usually around 600 MPH
Commercial jets usually fly at 10,000 metres. How high can planes fly? It gets technical: A manned air-breathing jet aircraft following an uncontrolled b…allistic trajectory reached 37,650 metres (123,523 feet). A manned air-breathing jet aircraft in controlled horizontal flight flew at 25,929 m (85,069 ft).
The cruising speed of a Cessna 150 is about 85 knots. That is air speed, so over the ground it would be the same in still air, and more or less when going downwind or up…wind. Generally 90 to 110 miles per hour, I would think.
Depending on the plane, it could be anywhere around 500 knots. (600 MPH, 1,000 KPH)
The official recorded first flight was Dec 17, 1903 and Orville flew 120 feet in 12 seconds for a estimated speed of 6.8 MPH.
He has to travel at more than 760mph.
At 550 miles per hour, it would be .15 miles per second.
easy way to find this answer is to find the miles per minute and multiply by 60 to get miles per hour 95/10=9.5 miles per minute 9.5 mpm x 60 minutes per hour = 570 …MPH.
