# What effect does a higher aircraft weight have on takeoff and landing performance?

Contents

The weight of an aircraft is one of the basic factors that determines the landing distance required by an aircraft. An increase in weight increases the stall speed of the aircraft. Stall is a reduction in the lift coefficient generated by a wing as angle of attack increases.

## What effect does increasing the total weight of an airplane have on takeoff distance?

How does weight affect takeoff and landing performance? The effect of gross weight on landing distance is that the airplane will require a greater speed to support the airplane at the landing AOA and lift coefficient resulting in and increased landing distance.

## What is the takeoff and landing distance over a 50?

The average landing ground roll was 688 feet, and the average landing distance over a 50-foot obstacle was 1,466 feet.

## What is the total takeoff distance over a 50-foot obstacle?

5.5.6.2.2.A.1 (Refer to figure 32.) What is the total takeoff distance over a 50-foot obstacle? A) 1,300 feet.

## How does weight affect the flight of a plane?

Weight is the force that pulls the plane down due to gravity. In order for the plane to get off the ground, the plane must overcome its weight throught the force of lift. The more mass the plane has the more lift it has to produce in order to get off the ground.
