1

Define V1 speed

Takeoff decision speed for jets, turboprops or Transport category aircraft

  • Below V1: abort
  • V1 and above: continue 

2

Define V2MIN speed

Minimum takeoff safety speed 

1.2 x stall speed in takeoff configuration

3

Define VA speed

Design Maneuvering speed.

The highest speed for abrupt control deflection -- does not allow for multiple large control inputs.

4

What is VSB (sometimes shown as VABO)?

Maximum speed for Speedbrake (Air-Brake) operation

5

What is VAC?

Missed Approach Climb speed for flap configuration with critical engine inop (2.1% climb gradiant)

6

What is VAP?

Approach target speed

7

What is VB?

Transport category aircraft design speed for maximum gust intensity.

 

Part 25: Turbulent-air-penetration speed -- will protect up to 66 fps gusts

8

What is VC?

Design Cruising speed

9

What is VD?

Design Diving Speed

10

What is VDEC?

Accelerate/Stop Decision Speed for Multiengine Piston/Turboprops 

11

What is VDF or MDF?

Demonstrated Flight Diving Speed in knots or Mach

12

What is VEF?

Critical engine failure speed used during certification testing

13

What is VENR?

Enroute climb speed with critical engine inop.

Accelerate to VENR above 1,500 feet AGL

 

14

What is VF?

Design Flap Speed...

Should be the same as VFE

15

What is VFC or MFC?

Maximum speed for undesirable Flight Characteristics -- knots and Mach

16

What is VFE?

Maximum Flap-Extended speed

Top of the "white arc"

Highest speed permissible with flaps at a perscribed position

17

What is VFR?

Flap Retraction Speed -- minimum speed required for flap retraction after takeoff.

18

What is VFS?

Final Segment speed (take off) with critical engine inop.

Accellerate to VFS at 400 ft AGL.

19

What is VFTO?

Final Take Off Speed.

End of the takeoff path, enroute configuration with one engine inop.

20

What is VH?

Maximum speed in level flight with maximum continuous power.

21

What is VLE?

Maximum Landing Gear Extended speed

 

 

22

What is VLLE?

Maximum Landing Light Extended speed.

23

What is VLLO?

Maximum Landing Light Operating speed.

24

What is VLO?

Maximum Landing gear Operating Speed

Maximum speed where landing gear can be extended or retracted.

25

What is VLOF?

Lift-Off Speed

26

What is VMCA or VMC?

Minimum Control speed with the most critical engine inoperative and out of ground effect.

"Red Line"

With airspeed below VMC full rudder will not prevent yaw toward dead engine.

Not constant -- changes with CG and power.

27

What is VMCG?

Minimum speed to maintain directional control following an engine failure during takeoff -- still on the ground.

28

What is VMO/MMO?

Maximum Operation limit speed (turbine/jets)

VMO -- lower altitude and in Knots

MMO -- higher altitudes and in Mach

29

What is VMU?

Minimum Unstick speed.  Slowest speed at which an aircraft will become airborne.

30

What is VNE?

Never Exceed speed -- redline (piston)
