How High do airplanes travel?
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 ballistic 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).

From 28,000 to 33,000 feet.
Sound molecules can stack up in front of airplanes traveling at very high speeds. this can cause what?
Yes! Horses are transported by plane every day. All ages and types of horses are flown if they are sold to a home in another country. Competition horses are also flown. Horses… can be flown on a regular cargo plane like Fedex, or a specialty plane like this one: http://www.suttonforwarding.com/AboutUs.aspx
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.
it is only safe if your doctor tells you it is, it might be safe for you but it wont be safe for people around you because the germs are in the air for a however long the jour…ney is, but mostly it depends on what your doctor says, so the best thing would be to see your doctor/gp. hope this helps :D
The first airplane was used for travel in the year 1921
The first president to fly in an airplane while in office was Calvin Coolidge in 1933. ? ?The first ex-president to fly in an airplane was Theodore Roosevelt, who flew as a pa…ssenger in a 4-minute flight in one of the early Wright biplanes on October 11, 1910, a year after he had left office. Theodore Roosevelt rode on a very short flight with the Wright brothers. The first sitting US president to fly in an air plane was Franklin Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt flew in a plane soon after he left office, so you can say he was the first ex-president who flew in an airplane. You can find reports that Calvin Coolidge took a plane ride while he was in office, but these reports can not be verified.
Children ages 5-7 years can only fly on nonstop or direct flights with no change of planes. * Children ages 8-14 years can fly on nonstop or connecting flights, but may not …connect to other airlines, with the exception of Delta Connection carriers (excluding AA Eagle) and Air France. * Children 15-17 are not required to have unaccompanied service but we will provide it when requested. * An unaccompanied child can not be booked on the last connecting flight of the evening. This is to prevent the need for an overnight stay in a hotel.
Your ears pop in planes because the air high above the surface of earth is less dense than air near the surface has all the air above it pushing it down.
Yes. Statistically speaking it is the safest mode of common travel.
The air pressure in the cabin of the airplane changes slightly as it goes up and down, just as the air pressure in a car changes when it drives up into the mountains or ba…ck down towards the beach. The changes set up different pressures on the inside and outside of the eardrum, making the ears feel "stuffed" and interfering with hearing. In most people, the eustachian tubes (small tubes inside the head that connect the middle ear with the mouth and nose) open from time to time to let air in or out of the middle ear, which equalizes the pressure and produces a popping sound. However, in some people, these tubes refuse to open, and then the pressure builds up and produces pain in the ears. In the worst case, the eardrums may rupture, but usually it just produces severe pain. This condition is called ear block. It's not a health risk (unless it's bad enough to rupture the eardrum), but it's not pleasant. It is often worse on the way down than it was on the way up. You can help avoid it by pinching your nose shut, closing your mouth, exhaling into your mouth and nose, and then swallowing. This tends to open the eustachian tubes to equalize the pressure. If you have problems every time you fly, ask your doctor about it. There may be something he can do to fix the problem. Sometimes taking a decongestant before a flight helps, but usually only if the problem is due to a cold or flu.
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). Red-Breasted Merganser 80 mph (129 km/h) n/a . Bird (dive). Peregrine Falcon 217 mph (349 km/h) in a 45Â° dive n/a . Autogyro. WA-116F 120.5 mph (193.76 km/h) 18 September 1986 . Rotorcraft.

You get to your destination faster.
in your luggage you can but on a carry on bag.

I HATE travelling through airplane. Perhaps travelling with ryanair. First you have to wait hours before your gate number comes up. And then when you get on the plane they try… to sell you the most expensive things on earth which you could get in the supermarket for about 1/2 that price!
Yes. However, from the security requirements you may be required to place the device in a solid container and this will be situated in the cargo area. As you'll be travell…ing with two different airlines and therefore potential long haul it would be expedient to check with both carriers and currently there has been a number of security alerts across some of the European air spaces. /
