What is the normal landing speed of a 737?

RE: 737-800 Landing Speed?#10937427. At max landing weight (144,000 pounds for our -800s), the flaps 30 (degrees) Vref is 150. We usually add 5 knots to that to produce a “target speed” of 155 knots.

What is the approach speed of a 737?

The proper final approach speed varies with weight, but a good target at typical operating weight is 140 KIAS. With landing gear down and flaps at 30 degrees, set the power to maintain 140. This configuration should hold airspeed with a good descent angle toward the runway.

## How fast are you going when a plane lands?

Depends on how you define “commercial”. Two seat Cessna 152 used by a flight school for instruction is technically “commercial” and its landing speed is around 60 knots. An airliner such as Boeing 777 or a corporate jet such as Citation usually touches down around 150ish knots indicated airspeed (KIAS).

## How many passengers does a Boeing 737 hold?

Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner derived from the 707 and 727, the 737 has developed into a family of ten passenger models with capacities from 85 to 215 passengers.

## How fast does a plane have to be to land?

Speeds vary according to performance, environmental conditions and weight but typically a fully loaded 747 on a normal long haul flight would take off from a typical length runway at around 160 knots which is 184 mph. A typical fully loaded 747 would be landing at around 25,0000kgs.

## How fast does a plane need to go to take off?

A headwind will reduce the ground speed needed for takeoff, as there is a greater flow of air over the wings. Typical takeoff air speeds for jetliners are in the 130–155 knot range (150–180 mph, 240–285 km/h). Light aircraft, such as a Cessna 150, take off at around 55 knots (63 mph, 100 km/h).

## What is the take off speed of an Airbus a380?

Takeoff speed is actually the same more or less for most commercial aircraft. A380 takeof speed is roughly 150 knots while for an A320 it is also roughly 150 knots (I say roughly because the precise takeoff speed depends on how much cargo and people is being carried).

## How much does a 737 weigh in pounds?

A: The Boeing 737-800 is an example of an average sized airplane. It has a maximum takeoff weight of about 80,000 kg (175,000 lbs). This includes the weight of the plane, which is about 41,000 kg (90,000 lbs), and the weight of the fuel which is about 18,000 kg (40,000 lbs).

## What is the take off speed of an a380?

An A380 crosses the landing threshold at a docile 140 knots and touches down, depending on its landing weight, at a speed as slow as 130 knots, about the same touchdown speed of some corporate jets that weigh 1/50th as much as the world’s biggest airliner.

## How much is a 777?

At list price today, the 777-200ER would cost \$261.5 million and would be the lowest priced model of the 777 family. Boeing’s order book currently includes 257 new 777-300ER models; 44 777F freighters; and 66 777X models. The list price for the 777-300ER is \$320.2 million.

## How does a plane take off from the ground?

A plane’s engines are designed to move it forward at high speed. That makes air flow rapidly over the wings, which throw the air down toward the ground, generating an upward force called lift that overcomes the plane’s weight and holds it in the sky. The wings force the air downward and that pushes the plane upward.

## What is the landing speed of 737?

At max landing weight (144,000 pounds for our -800s), the flaps 30 (degrees) Vref is 150. We usually add 5 knots to that to produce a “target speed” of 155 knots.

## How long is the runway?

A runway of at least 6,000 ft (1,829 m) in length is usually adequate for aircraft weights below approximately 200,000 lb (90,718 kg). Larger aircraft including widebodies will usually require at least 8,000 ft (2,438 m) at sea level and somewhat more at higher altitude airports.

## What is the top speed of a 737?

At 26000′ in a standard atmosphere, 340kCAS = 490 knots True Air Speed, which is the absolute maximum permitted speed of a Boeing 737. 490 kTAS = 564mph or 907km/hr (using a generic Speed Unit Converter.) But you asked about the cruise speed.

## How much does a 777 weight?

List of airliners by maximum takeoff weight has everything you need for all passenger models of 777. Boeing 777-300ER = 775,000 lb (350,678 kg) Boeing 777-200LR = 766,000 lb (346,606 kg) Boeing 777-300 = 660,000 lb.

## How fast does a 737 go when it’s taking off?

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. With a very common 737-800 the landing speed is about 180-200 knots.

## How much fuel does a 737 use in an hour?

Q: About how much fuel per hour does a medium-sized aircraft such as the 737 burn? A: In round numbers, a 737 will burn 5,000 pounds (750 gallons) an hour.

## How fast is a 747?

The 747-400, the most common variant in service, has a high-subsonic cruise speed of Mach 0.85–0.855 (up to 570 mph or 920 km/h) with an intercontinental range of 7,260 nautical miles (8,350 statute miles or 13,450 km).

## How high does a Boeing 737 fly?

Although many jets could fly at higher altitudes, they are usually certified to an altitude giving a wide safety margin. For example the new generation Boeing 737 is certified to 41,000ft (7.8 miles). Many military jet aircraft are able to fly considerably higher.

## How fast is a 727?

Airliners generally cruise between about Mach 0.8 and Mach 0.9, which at cruising altitudes of 30,000 to 40,000 feet, is around 450 to 500 knots (or about 500 to 600 MPH). No airliner other than the Concorde is capable of supersonic flight.
