What is balanced field takeoff?
A "balanced field" with respect to aircraft takeoff performance refers to the minimum length of runway that will allow for an aircraft to accelerate to V-1 (decision speed), experience failure of the critical engine, and then either stop in the remaining runway or continue to a successful takeoff meeting all applicable takeoff performance criteria.

The simplest answer: for an average-sized commercial jetliner with typical fuel and payload, the "takeoff speed" is around 130-160 knots, or about 150 to 200 miles per hour. The landing speed is more or less the same, usually a few knots slower. The landing/takeoff speed can range from 105 knots …for a light commuter jet to nearly 200 knots for the Concorde. In reality, many factors affect the speed at which the pilot pulls back on the flight yoke (called V R or "rotation" speed) and the speed at which the aircraft can safely leave the ground. The minimum takeoff speed is typically at least 1.3 times the speed at which it is moving quickly enough to actually generate lift (called "V S "). The variables include aircraft weight (more weight requires a faster takeoff speed), temperature, airport elevation, humidity, and degree of flaps (up to a point, increased flaps create greater lift in the wings and may allow a slower takeoff speed). Therefore, in order to fly the aircraft as safely as possible, numerous speeds including V R (rotation speed), V 1 (continue takeoff even with one engine out), V 2 (safety climbing speed with one engine out) and V REF (touchdown speed) must be computed in advance. On most modern-day airliners, the cockpit is supplied with a Flight Management System in which pilots can enter weight and flap conditions and the system will compute several speeds used during takeoff and landing.

A plane has to takeoff in the direction in which wind is blowing so that the airplane can get help when taking off at a speed of 160 knots. So for example you are going to California and the wind is blowing from Europe, you would have to takeoff from runway 13R if your at JFK and you would make a sh…arp left turn heading to the west into the wind and climb at an altitude of 36,000 feet and cruise at a speed of about 500 knots so you can get to California in about 6 hours and 20 minutes. I hope I answered your question. ( Full Answer )
Takeoff speeds of commercial passenger jets can vary greatly depending on aircraft design, weight, flap setting, runway condition, etc. However, most commercial jets take off somewhere between 130 kts (B737)and 155 kts (B747). The Concord had a takeoff speed of 195 kts.
The mission was launched on July 16, 1969. They landed on the moon on July 20th, 1969.
It varies a bit depending on things such as winds, take-off weight and air pressure (runway altitude), but under typical conditions take-off speed is around 150 knots (280km/h or 170mph).
Airplanes need to generate lift in order to take off and fly. The way they do this is to go fast enough on the ground so that the air passing over the wings generates lift in accordance with Bernoulli's principle. When sufficient speed is attained to generate the necessary lift, the plane will fly…. ( Full Answer )
When an airplane takes off, passengers will feel the accelerationand lift off of the plane as it leaves the ground. Sometimes thiscan make passengers nervous, or as it receives elevation, it canmake peoples ears pop.
Eugene Burton Ely was the first person to takeoff from a ship. Ely took off from the USS Birmingham on 14 November 1910 while it was anchored in Hampyon Roads VA. He flew a Curtiss pusher biplane. On 18 Jan 1911 Ely landed his Curtiss pusher on the USS Pennsylvania in San Francisco Bay making the fi…rst landing on a ship. ( Full Answer )
Space ships take off by means of a source of mechanical force,usually a rocket engine, capable of developing a force greater thanthe total weight of the ship and everything in it. The force isthen applied to the ship and pointed upward. This cancels the forceof gravity, provides the ship with a litt…le something extra in theupward direction, and accelerates the ship and all of its contentsupward. This process was developed and explained by Isaac Newton,an Englishman, and it's now used routinely all over the world. It'salso the process you use when you want to lift your whole body UP aflight of stairs. ( Full Answer )
The main engines use liquid hydrogen (LH2) and liquid oxygen (LOX). The booster rockets use solid fuel, which is Ammonium Perchlorate Composite Propellant (APCP).

Take-off is taking measurements and obtaining quantities of materials from a set of plans and specifications that will be required to complete a project. There are many different methods and software programs that make this process more methodical than just starting on page 1 and going through, but …the goal is to come up with quantities to be matched with pricing (construction estimating) to determine the cost of materials in a project.

Your question is very broad. One of the things a rocket takes off from is called a launch pad. Launch pads are the place where rockets take off. But the things that cause it to take off are completely different. A rocket takes off or 'launches' from a concept called thrust. Thrust is when say I have… a ten pound ball that I want to throw directly up in the air. I need to create 10 pounds of energy to launch it and then enough energy to actually get it to where I want to go. Those are the basic things that make a rocket launch. ( Full Answer )
There are auto landing systems where the plane can get to theground following a laser flight plath - Taking off is much simplerof the two as a plane whose airframe is set to take off needs justthe speed, direct and it will climb when the yoke is pulled back
In the rocket engine large amount of fuel are burnt. The burning fuel expands and is forces itself out the bottom of the rocket. As it pushes down, it pushes the rocket up. If the force pushing the rocket up exceeds its weight, the rocket will take off.
ANSWER landing because you can crash the plane and you must now how to do it. ANSWER Landing is more difficult because there are more variables that must be taken into consideration and controlled by the pilot(s). A pilot needs to reduce altitude and airspeed properly, set a rate of des…cent and adjust it moment by moment, get lined up with the runway which may not be possible until final approach and keep lined up regardless of wind conditions. If a plane has flaps they need to be lowered at the proper times and airspeeds, and if the plane has raiseable wheels they should not be lowered until just before touchdown. At the appropriate time the pilot must place both feet on the pedals and use them to gently control the rudder to help control the plane's direction. Everything must be executed with near perfection so that the plane touches down at the center of the near end of the runway, at the correct speed and rate of descent, aligned with the runway. When the plane touches down and the wheels come up to speed, the pilot steers the plane with the foot pedals. If the plane has thrust reversers or reversable propellers, they must be used to slow the plane until the speed is low enough to safely use the wheel brakes, which are usually activated by pushing both foot pedals at the same time. While this is all happening, the pilot needs to be prepared to abort the landing (a decision that needs to be made before touchdown) or "touch and go" (taking off again as soon as the wheels touch down). There are a lot of precision maneuvers that need to happen in a very short time, and it takes a lot of repeated practice. Taking off in good flying conditions is a relatively simple procedure that can quickly be taught to a student pilot. If the controls are correctly set, the plane will almost (not quite) take off by itself when the proper speed is reached on the runway. Rotate the nose upward, immediately get your feet off the pedals and keep them off until landing. Raise the wheels if they are raiseable, start reducing the flaps settings if you have flaps, and you will continue to fly as long as you don't try to climb so fast that you stall. That's about it.

No. Not always. For many airplanes, it may be required if the airplane is fullly loaded.
The Space Shuttle accelerates greatly after lift-off, - to prevent any inadvertent damage to the nosecone that may occur due to this excessive acceleration, (bird-strikes, small insects, meteorites etc:) The craft is tilted so that the the main fuel tank will absorb any instances of impact. Hence th…e reason the Shuttle orbits in a rearwards manner. ( Full Answer )
Here's a very simple answer to a very complex question: To take off, an aircraft must accelerate to a fast enough speed so that the airfoils (wings) generate sufficient lift for the aircraft to overcome gravity (its weight) and become airborne. This is accomplished through the use of engines that pr…oduce thrust--jet engines or propeller engines, for example--which move the aircraft forward through the air. To land, the thrust is reduced gradually so as to reduce the speed which reduces lift which, in turn, allows the aircraft to descend. Again, this is a very simplistic explanation to a very complicated process. ( Full Answer )
Because the poo jet propells the bird into the air. :) It needs support taking off!
The aeroplane takes off from the runway with the increase of speed to more than 280kmph.
i guess when the engines are set to full thrust, and when the plane leaves the ground...
An airplane takes off by accelerating in forward velocity until the lift being generated by the wings becomes greater than the mass of the aircraft, and overcomes gravity. Then the pilot usually brings the nose of the aircraft up slightly, increasing the "angle of attack". This means that by chang…ing the angle of the wing as it moves through the air it generates even greater lift, allowing the airplane to climb at a faster rate. However the airplane must have sufficient forward velocity or the airplane will stall. This means that changing the angle of the wing in the forward direction does generate more lift, but also more resistance to the air, thereby increasing the likelihood that it will stall. As airspeed drops, lift drops, and the airplane will drop back to earth. ( Full Answer )
Yes they can land and takeoff at San Diego but they are seen as troop charters or charters for sport teams
If it can be helped always land and take off into the wind (wind in your face)
The aircraft gains speed. Its wing is curved on top and flat on bottom, so it gains lift. Then it soars into the sky with its nose pointing up.
The clip on Youtube is from a video game, if that's what you're referring too.
Any object when it reaches certain speed it will be able to over come the Earth's gravitational pull. This is the reason why we feel like flying when we drive a car, etc. at a high speed. This Speed is proportional to the weight of the object. But still we do not fly. This is because our car…'s speed can increase only when it is touching the ground. Where as an aircraft moves by pulling the air that is in front of the aircraft and creating a vacuum in front of it. Sort of a suction effect. - (similar to when we close a syringe and pull the pump how the pump is drawn back). So the aircraft need not touch the ground to gain momentum.

I can think of no reason at all to wet an aircraft before take-off. If anything, this would degrade performance by adding weight, possibly also degrading the aerofoil efficiency (especially for laminar-flow aerofoils such as on high performance gliders) and possibly reducing cockpit visibility - try… driving your car in the rain without wipers. A possible explanation for someone who sees a liquid being sprayed onto an aircraft's flying surfaces (wings, tail-fin(s), rudder, flaps, tail-plane etc) might be that de-icer (Glycol or similar) is being used to removed accumulated ice. The removal of ice (which could badly spoil your day if you try to take off with too much on your aeroplane) is essential; the very slight performance reduction due to the remaining thin layer of de-icer is a small price to pay.

Well, first you will need to put the body of the aircraft inside a wind tunnel capable of at least 200 mph wind, see how many pounds of lift it creates. Depending on how much lift there is will determine how much weight it can take off with. maximum take off weight is calculated using the aircrafts… basic empty weight and adding the weight of fuel, passengers, and cargo. this should be found in your POH (pilot operating handbook). once you have calculated the weight of the amount of fuel you will need, passengers and where they will be sitting, and the weight of your cargo, you should refer to your weight&balance charts.

Hold your forward key down (default W) then once you are going fast enough it will start to lift when it does pull your mouse back until the front goes up. [It's easier to learn if when you get in the plane you press V twice]
Take off speed depends on the make of airliner, the airport, the number of passengers and cargo being carried, the distance to the destination and the weather.

Take Off's are meant for what is the take off of a 10 90.that would be 15.a standard long radius 90 will be one and half times the diameter of the pipe.8 would be 12a short radius fitting would be different.the system this is it=22.214.171.124. works well.
When a plane is taking off it should go at a speed at 160 knots before reaching into the air..
I takes off at about 160 kts (184 mph). It really depends on what your pay-load is.
Exactly the same way it takes off from the earth. Gravity on the moon is so relativistically low that the propulsion required to reach an escape velocity is very very low compared to the earth.
Sometimes, yes, but if they are sat on a tree or on a fence post, they do not :)
Generally for a small Cessna 152 the rotation speed is 50 kias. For larger jets I am not sure but it's a start
No gliders can not take off without power otherwise they would just be sitting/standing were there mean't to take off.
It's the world's busiest airport, ATC (Air Traffic Control) at Heathrow tries to accommodate most aircraft to land into the wind, so you would probably be taking off against the wind
By producing a downward thrust of air suited to push the helicopter upwards. When entering forward flight there is a transition to another set of laws of physics.

No. It is one, nonhyphenated noun. It refers to aircraft beginningflight, or metaphorically the beginning of a venture or startup. Ifused as a noun adjunct (takeoff speed), it never means the processof taking something off .
It depends on the context. If a plane plans to take off , it is two words. The actual process, its takeoff is one word. If an item is a take-off (copy of another item) then it is hyphenated.
Construction takeoff software is that of the usual computer package that is not specified. The takeoff software specifications are found on the back of the box and is quite involved because of the uniqueness of its use.
Elevators help your takeoff by raising the tail of the aircraft and putting the whole aircraft in 'flight' attitude.
