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.

Thanks for the feedback!
No airplane goes faster than the speed of sound wich is 1000km per hour due to safety reasons.
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 airborne! … . 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. .
Different planes travel at different speeds. They range from aprox. 280 mph to 2200 mph. Here's a record chart. Insect. Australian Dragonfly 36 mph (58 km/h) n/a . Bir…d (level flight).

Usually around 600 MPH
gh speed travel via car, train or airplane
Gulfstream V can make the trip in 1:06 a lot of comercial airlines fly bangkok to chiangmai thailands second city flights take just over the hour costs around 50 USD chiangma…i has many good quality hotels and guest houses to suit all budgets and many flights arrive and depart each day to both bangkok airports chiangmai is very popular with tourists and expats
350 km per hour ha ha ha aswered by steven and callum and Liam
Commercial jets usually fly at 10,000 metres.\nHow high can planes fly? It gets technical:\n. \n. \nA manned air-breathing jet aircraft following an uncontrolled ballistic t…rajectory reached 37,650 metres (123,523 feet).\nA manned air-breathing jet aircraft in controlled horizontal flight flew at 25,929 m (85,069 ft).
He has to travel at more than 760mph..
At 550 miles per hour, it would be .15 miles per second.
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)
welll the answer to this question is somewhere on the internet which i couldn't find myself XD TROOLOLOLOLOLOL
Why do you not experience a drop in air pressure when you travel via airplanes even though airplanes travel at high altitudes?
It is because an aeroplane's cabin is pressurized, meaning that it is sealed off from the atmosphere. This prevents air escaping and keeps the pressure constant.
On long flights airplanes generally travel somewhere near the border of the stratosphere and mesosphere?
Commercial airliners on long flights usually try to take advantage of the "Jet Stream". These narrow bands of winds aloft can sometimes reach speeds of 200-250 mph! They are u…sually found in the 35k to 40k ft layer. The pilot can use the wind as a pusher. The average jet flies at about 450 mph. Add another 250 mph tail wind and mama I'm home!
Airplanes are fast because it has to fly through gravity at full force. If the plane goes very slow at 35,000 feet, It will plunge straight to the ground in a matter of second…s
About 670 million miles per hour... which would never happen
