Takeoff Speed Optimization – Speed Ratios V1/Vr and V2/Vs

Takeoff optimization principal has objective of attaining highest possible performance limited takeoff weight while fulfilling airworthiness requirements. Parameters influencing takeoff performance can be Sustained Parameters (can’t be changed) and Free Parameters(variable to certain extent). As part of free parameters takeoff speed optimization is the most important method to gain better takeoff performance and hence higher …
