## How far can a jet fly straight up?

Commercial planes fly between 35,000 and 42,000 feet these days – which is upwards of 6.6 miles up in the air.

Can a jet fly vertically?

A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft is one that can hover, take off, and land vertically. This classification can include a variety of types of aircraft including fixed-wing aircraft as well as helicopters and other aircraft with powered rotors, such as cyclogyros/cyclocopters and tiltrotors.

### Can an airplane fly straight up?

If an aircraft has enough Thrust (force) that exceeds the weight (Mass times acceleration of gravity) plus the force of drag of the aircraft, then it can fly straight up, until such time as the engines do not have sufficient thrust due to a lack of oxygen in the atmosphere at that altitude.

Can a plane fly vertically in 60 seconds?

The F-15 can climb to 30,000 ft (10,000 m) in around 60 seconds. The thrust output of the dual engines is greater than the aircraft’s combat weight, so it has the ability to accelerate vertically.” What is required is a thrust to weight ratio greater than 1. F-15 has a thrust to weight ratio of 1.04 ( Thrust-to-weight ratio – Wikipedia ).

## How does a plane take off and land vertically?

To take off or land vertically, the powerful exhaust streams from a jet engine can be directed downward as well as backward, and their direction can be changed in mid-flight. This allows fixed-wing aircraft, such as the Harrier or the F-35B, to take off vertically, fly forward, stop in mid-air, back up, and land vertically.

How many miles can a private jet fly?

So if you can fly direct, can you fly nonstop? Aircraft Type Maximum Range Maximum Flight Time Piston Aircraft < 1000 miles 5 hours Turboprop 1000-1500 miles 4-5 hours Light Jet 1000-1800 miles 5 hours Midsize Jet 2000-3000 miles 6 hours

### Are there any planes that can fly vertically?

Yes planes can fly vertically. Probably the most famous example is the Harrier Jump Jet – Wikipedia which is still used by the United States Marine Force. It was originally designed so that it could take off from make-shift landing areas like parking lots or forest clearings. Nowadays it is mostly used to take off from aircraft carriers.

How long does it take to learn to fly a jet?

If pilots are better in a few cases, t… Well you don’t “start” flying a jet – you learn to fly in a small single piston engine aircraft. If you are taught well, once you learn how to aviate and communicate, you can usually solo (fly all by yourself) after about 15 hours.
