From 28,000 to 33,000 feet.
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.
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.
Somewhere around 100 knots or approx 100 mph. While actual take off speed varies according to a number of factors, such as aircraft weight and density altitude, typicall…y, a large transport type jet such as the B767 would rotate somewhere between 140 to 160 knots. It takes about 3 steps to take off 1. V1(190knots) 2. V2(195knots) 3.Rotate(200knots), and take off
The first passenger plane was flown on Febrauary 8, 1919 from Paris to London. A person called Henry Farman was the pilot. The jouney took six hours. Fokker introduced commer…cial planes in the Netherlands in the early twenties. it is thus said that KLM ( established l9l9) is the oldes surviving airline , as opposed to lines that have gone out of business. One of the earliest commercial transports, of which a number survive in flying order!- is the Ford Tri-motor which was built in various forms between l926-35 or so.-and these were used much later. the Ford Tri-Motor was nicknamed the Tin Goose from the corrugated sheet metal body and wing construction- used also on French Mail trucks!
He has to travel at more than 760mph.
At 550 miles per hour, it would be .15 miles per second.
35 miles an hour
The way this is worded is tricky so I'm going to give you the answer to the question I think you meant to ask. The average speed of a large commercial jet airliner is ab…out 500 mph. A "passenger plane" can be anything from an ultralight on up. If you go from ultralights to jets and everything in between that has more than one seat, your average speed drops drastically.
Obviously every aircraft is different, it can vary from 1 in a small light aircraft, to 853 in the Airbus A 380. Most common passenger jets will carry around 160-200 .
The Airbus A380. . The world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, has completed its maiden flight. "The behaviour of the aircraft both before and after take-off… was completely normal," says Jacques Rosay, the Airbus chief test pilot who flew the aircraft. "After take-off we went up to 10,000 feet accompanied by the chaser aircraft. The aircraft has been fantastic." The plane, which has taken 10 years and $13 billion to develop, flew from its production site in Toulouse, France, with a crew of 6. It also carried 20 tonnes of test equipment to monitor the performance of the autopilot and other aircraft systems. Airbus intends to build four prototypes and to carry out 2200 hours of testing before the aircraft enters service in 2006. The A380 dwarfs the Boeing 747 jumbo, currently the world's largest passenger aircraft. It has a wingspan of 80 metres, more than twice the distance flown by the Wright brother's on their first powered flight. The A380 is capable of carrying up to 840 passengers on two decks and an air freighter version of the aircraft will carry a payload of 150 tonnes on three decks. .

Early Air Travel Very early flights for passengers were usually for pleasure rather than travel. It was such a novelty! As far as I know, t…he first scheduled flights for the public began to operate in about 1912, but only over short distances. Anything much more than 30 miles or so was rare at that stage. Austria claims to have been the first country to have had regular scheduled long-distance air services. Apparently they started to operate early in 1918 on the route Vienna - Krakow (now in Poland) - Lviv (now in the Ukraine). In 1918 these places were all in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Unfortunately, I don't have the mileage, but the distances would have run to some hundreds of miles. NOTE. Please check this, as it seems very early for the kind of distances. In the early days, flights seldom operated every day of the week and air travel was very expensive. Some years years ago I saw a replay of a film made in 1938 (so on eve of WW2) by British Imperial Airways of a flight from London to Bombay (now Mumbai) and Delhi, both then in British India. From what I remember the journey took three days. The passengers spent each night on the ground at a hotel and all dressed up terribly elegantly for dinner. :)
Commercial airplanes typically travel around 550 (five hundred and fifty) miles per hour. They are able to travel and slower or faster speeds, however.
They are called flight attendants. They serve the passengers with food, alcohol and other things. They help passengers escape in the time of disasters of accidents.
