takeoff speed

takeoff speed

The air speed at which an airplane normally gets airborne. This is dependent on the takeoff weight. The same as unstick speed.

There is actually a point of no return where the steepness of a runway will exceed the excess thrust required to accelerate to takeoff speed. Unless there is a hurricane-force wind blowing downhill, you won't take off.
Clearly the impact on the economy from past QE efforts has been insufficient to boost output growth to "takeoff speed" or additional rounds of money printing would not be needed.
The model's all-wheel drive is an electronically controlled system that helps enhance stability and is equipped with PreTension' which improves takeoff speed and delivers higher traction on slippery surfaces.
He rotated at takeoff speed and, once airborne, reapplied maximum takeoff power to establish a climb.
Covering equipment, behavior, epidemiology, and biomechanics, the 16 papers explore such topics as evaluating the performance of helmet linings incorporating fluid channels, emergency release for winter sports equipment, reaction times of skiers and snowboarders, gender-specific effects of smoking and alcohol consumption on the risk of falling in downhill skiers, aging trends in alpine skiing, skiing and boarding injuries on Norwegian slopes during two winter seasons, jumper kinematics on terrain park jumps: relationships between takeoff speed and distance traveled, and reaction forces and moments in carved turns.
Other common mistakes involved pilots and crew entering the wrong takeoff speed, followed by the incorrect aircraft weight and wrong temperature.
Airline spokesman Paul McElroy says Seattle-bound Flight 68 was approaching takeoff speed when the eagle was ingested into the left engine shortly after 10 a.m.
The preliminary factual report on the incident, issued yesterday in Canberra, found that despite five levels of cross-checking (as recommended by Airbus), an incorrect takeoff weight for the A340 with 257 passengers and 14 crew aboard was entered into the computers that calculate the takeoff speed and thrust.
Further, it typically touches down at 60 to 80 percent of its takeoff speed. A tire's touchdown spin-up occurs on a "cold" tire and at a lighter load.
When Dean first struck land near the cruise port of Majahual, it had sustained winds near 165mph and gusts that reached 200mph - faster than the takeoff speed of many passenger jets.
Had the takeoff speed been faster, they may have made it to nearby Le Bourget airport, where there were fire crews standing by.
"Toward the end of phase A they are learning about takeoff performance from charts that compute proper takeoff speed and distance." In phase B students learn weight, balance and center-of-gravity issues for the P-3, take their first flights and continue to study systems procedures.
