## What is VH speed?

VH is defined as the maximum speed in level flight with the maximum continuous power at sea level.

## What is VX and VY?

Vx is the speed where you have the most excess force (thrust), and Vy is the speed where you have the most excess power (horsepower).

## What is V ref?

V_{REF} is a speed: That gives you at least a 23 percent margin over V _{SR0}, reference stall speed in the landing configuration. That is at least as high a V _{MCL}, minimum maneuver speed in the landing configuration.

## What is maneuvering speed in aviation?

In aviation, the maneuvering speed of an aircraft is an airspeed limitation selected by the designer of the aircraft. At speeds close to, and faster than, the maneuvering speed, full deflection of any flight control surface should not be attempted because of the risk of damage to the aircraft structure.

## What is V1 and V2 on takeoff?

A: V1 is the speed by which time the decision to continue flight if an engine fails has been made. V2 is the speed at which the airplane will climb in the event of an engine failure. It is known as the takeoff safety speed.

## What does the V mean in V speeds?

— From the French word vitesse, meaning “ speed.”

## How do I find VX?

Projectile motion equations

- Horizontal velocity component: Vx = V * cos(α)
- Vertical velocity component: Vy = V * sin(α)
- Time of flight: t = 2 * Vy / g.
- Range of the projectile: R = 2 * Vx * Vy / g.
- Maximum height: hmax = Vy² / (2 * g)

## What is VX in flying?

VX is the speed at which the airplane achieves the greatest gain in altitude for a given distance over the ground. It is usually slightly less than VY, which is the greatest gain in altitude per unit of time. The specific speeds to be used for a given airplane are stated in the FAA-approved AFM/POH.

## What is the approach speed of a 737?

It does depend on the weight of the aircraft, but typically the approach speed of a 737 is around 145knots. The power is retarded and the nose flares just before touchdown, so the airspeed will now be around 125 knots in impact with the tarmac…

## What is V2 in aviation?

V2: Takeoff Safety Speed. V2 is the minimum speed that needs to be maintained up to acceleration altitude, in the event of an engine failure after V1. Flight at V2 ensures that the minimum required climb gradient is achieved, and that the aircraft is controllable.

## How do you calculate maneuvering speed?

Pilots may remember from their written exam that VA-NEW = VA √ (WNEW/WMAX-GROSS) as the way to calculate the corrected (new) maneuvering speed due to operating at a weight less than the maximum gross weight. NOTE: This formula is for calculating the VA change about the pitch axis; however, it can be used for all axes.

## What is G limit?

What is G limit and why is it important in jet fighters? With in the envelope, say one where speed and load factor ( g’s ) are expressed on a plot, you’re ok if you remain within the boundary. Once you cross the boundary, the aircraft may stall, of fail to continue to perform adequately in some other manner.

## What is minimum maneuvering speed?

DMMS: Defined minimum maneuvering speed. This is similar to the speed that airline pilots polled in the video are referencing when they talk about maneuvering speed being a minimum, not a maximum. Gryder calculates the number as 1.404 times V_{S}, to account for a margin above stall speed in up to a 30-degree bank.
