  • Answer: normally aspirated jets or ram jets either one have a limitation near mach 3.6 2550mph. However, some specially designed jets have reached mach 7 near the edge of space.
  • Answer: 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, typically, 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
  • Answer: Depending on the type of engine the jet is using. A jet can go from 200 mph to 17,500 mph. This all comes down to a few key areas. Wind speed, wind direction, jet fuel used, octane levels, fuel consumption, weight of aircraft full loaded, and the type of engines the jet has. most common jets fly within the 700 mph range though or Mach 1.
  • Answer: 500-600 mph
  • Answer: most military air combat jet aircraft can go over mach 1.0, passenger aircraft fly at around mach 0.80
  • Answer: Air force jets can range in speed from sub-sonic ( below the speed of sound ) to speeds of mach 2 ( twice the speed of sound ) some can even reach mach 3

    the average military fighter jets average speeds of mach 1.2
  • Answer: Most fighter jets have a top speed of about Mach 2 (1400 mph) a few fighters can reach nearly Mach 3 about (2,000 mph).
  • Answer: This is too broad of a question. Different size jets will have different high cruise and long range cruise speeds. The link below is a good place to start, it shows the high cruise speed for a number of aircraft and even has graphs comparing the jet to others within a category.
  • Answer: about 87mph
  • Answer: This depends on the mission they are put into. Generally they do fly in groups when needed. If it is a solo mission they do not travel in groups.
  • Answer: The maximum cruise speed of a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 is Mach0.88 (610 mph / 982 km/h / 530 kt)
  • Answer: A jet can travel from 1000mph to 7000mph.
  • Answer: too slow!!a bus is never on time
  • Answer: The typical cruise speed of a Boeing 737-700 is Mach 0.785 (447 kn,514 mph, 828 km/h). The maximum speed is Mach 0.82 (475 kn, 545mph, 877 km/h)
