What is the landing and takeoff speed for an airplane?
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 VR 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 "VS"). 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 VR (rotation speed), V1 (continue takeoff even with one engine out), V2 (safety climbing speed with one engine out) and VREF (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.
This depends on the type of aeroplane. In the case of a VTOL jet the speed is actually zero.
The Vr (rotation for takeoff) speed of a Cessna 172 is around 55 kts. The final approach speed is around 60 kts. When landing pilots strive to stall the airplane at the same time that the wheels touch the ground this happens at around 50 kts.
The aeroplane takeoff is controlled by the engine speed and the elevators.
They are useful for takeoff to get lift and at landing for slowing down the plane.

Flaps and stats increase lift for takeoff and slow you down, for landing.
Increase speed and/or lift. You want the pressure above the wing to be lees than below. In very short times like takeoff, the flaps are increased to sacrifice speed for lift. As the a/c speed increases the flaps are slowly retracted until the wing is at its optimal setting. (Flaps moving is that mechanical noise you hear during takeoff and landing).
Yes, electronics are permitted to be used on aircraft after reaching 10,000 feet after takeoff and before landing.
Yes, Flaps are both used to create lift (on takeoff) and to slow the aircraft (on Landing)
"V1" is the speed at which the flight crew must either continue with the takeoff or abort the takeoff. It is the last point at which aborting is an option.
Yes, with ear buds. You cannot play it during takeoff or landing, but in flight is OK.
Flaps and slats Slats and flaps
Depends on the speed of the airplane and the landing delays.
It's a measure of speed. (Like miles per hour (mph), or kilometers per hour (kph)). The Cessna 172 has a takeoff speed of about 55 knots (kts). A Boeing 737 has a takeoff speed of about 135-140 knots. On takeoff, aircraft need to reach a certain speed to get into the air.
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… Read More
a small 2 seat prop like a cub can be 80 knots
Yes it is possible to have a small custom sized swimming pool in an airplane. But for this the airplane has to be very big and lots of modifications has to be done to the plane and the pool to prevent water from spilling during takeoff, landing and in turbulence.
A VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) aircraft is one that can takeoff and land like a helicopter, but fly like a plane. A good example is the V-22 Osprey.
Rotational speed is the propeller slipstream and engine torque all contrive to make the airplane turn left during takeoff.
Yes,you can but sometimes they wont allow it but most of the time they do warning:you cannot play during takeoff or landing and do not have any internet swithes on
You can use the Kindle, but I believe it'd have to be with the wireless off, and you may be asked to turn it off during takeoff and landing.
Generally for a small Cessna 152 the rotation speed is 50 kias. For larger jets I am not sure but it's a start
It's about 170 mph depending on weight.
When a plane is taking off it should go at a speed at 160 knots before reaching into the air..
Takeoff at Sea Level: 3,450 feet Takeoff at 5000' 25°C: 6,870 feet Landing Distance: 2,078 feet
A small Cub needs approx 80 knots whilst an A380 can lift at 140.
J. K. Wimpress has written: 'Shortening the takeoff and landing distances of high speed aircraft'
How far will an airplane travel before takeoff if the plane can accelerate uniformly at a rate of 2.45 meters per second to its takeoff speed of 70 meters per second?
The first step is to find out how long the airplane took before takeoff. If it travels at a uniform 2.45ms-2 acceleration and needs to get to 70ms-1 then this will take 70/2.45 = 28.57142857... seconds. The next step is to calculate the average speed. The plane starts at 0 and ends at 70, so the average speed will be 35ms-1. To find the distance travelled, we multiply the average speed (35) by the time… Read More
Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It also departed Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and flew 110 feet from takeoff to landing. 1903 If instead you meant the first flight by a commercial passenger airline: then it was Tampa, Florida. It departed from St. Petersburg, Florida and flew 21 miles from takeoff to landing carrying one passenger. 1914
Aircraft landing lights are key to takeoff and landing, and should always be working and checked prior to takeoff. Replacement lights can be purchased from Amglo and XEVision.
An aircraft uses a turbofan engine to reach takeoff and cruising speed. Look up TURBOFAN on Google for more info!
There are different speeds. They are called v-speeds: V1 takeoff decision speed V2 takeoff safety speed Va design maneuvering speed Vb design speed for maximum gust intensity Vc design cruise speed Vd design dive speed Vdf demonstration dive speed Vf design flap speed Vfe maximum flap-extended speed (top of white arc) Vh maximum speed in level flight with maximum continuous power Vle maximum landing-gear extended speed Vlo maximum landing-gear operating speed Vlof lift-off speed Vmca… Read More
Depending on the aircraft it ranges from 160 knots to 130 knots
top speed in the in-run on a class A jump was clocked at 74 mph. At takeoff the speed starts dropping and landing is about 42 mph.
During a takeoff in still air an airplane moves at a speed of 120 mih at an angle of 25 above the ground What is the ground speed of the plane?
cos 25 = groud speed/120 ground speed = 108.76 mi/h
A plane usually extends flaps from its wings during takeoff and landing What is a reasonable explanation?
The flaps help to increase lift, which is essential to the landing and takeoff phase[s].
It can be anywhere between 80 and 140 knots depending on aircraft
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 landing system on an aircraft carrier can stop a 54,000 pound airplane traveling at 150 mph in two seconds." Also, the aircraft carrier is often moving away from the landing aircraft (allowing a greater true air speed for the landing airplane.) Suppose the aircraft carrier is going 15 mph, then the 54,000 pound aircraft can land at a true airspeed of 165 mph.
important to take of the airplane
Approach speed depends on the plane, the load, and the wind. You can go full flaps on a Cessna 150 and land at about 50 mph (stall speed). If you are landing into a 30 mph headwind, you land at about 20 mph.
Most Boeing passenger liners would land around 130 mph.
Takeoff climb out speed is the speed for twin engine climb out and will get performance of best rate of climb and also it is known as (vbroc) but takeoff safety speed is the speed at which the helicopter may safely air born with one engine inoperatied and also it is known as (v2)
The stall speed must be less than the landing speed which is 173mph (about 150 knots). Also, as a rule of thumb, landing speed for an airplane should be less than about 225 knots since airplane tires are the limiting factor in landings and ideally one would land at the slowest speed possible without stalling. Previous answer ...it's between 200mph and 350mph. (That's a pretty wide margin)
Almost every aspect of an airplane landing is managed by computer. The most important aspect is decelerating the airplane so the brakes and landing gear can stop the plane.
The aircraft would change it's flight attitude. If you reduced the speed you would now be in a controlled descent, possibly for landing.
during takeoff and landing
The pilot first needs to check with the tower for clearance for takeoff, because it's never good to have a collision with an airplane that is landing and one that is taking off, or even have a mid-air collision with an aircraft on the approach and the other one leaving. When the pilot's given clearance, the airplane cruises from the tarmac tot he run way, and begins revving up the engines with the throttle so… Read More
