## What is the best glide ratio of a Cessna 172?

A Cessna 172 might glide at 8:1, so it could go 8000 feet forward for each 1000 feet it lost at a Vg of 65 knots indicated (KIAS). Maybe at 75 KIAS, the ratio is 7.8:1.

**What plane has the best glide ratio?**

According to its makers, the twin-jet wide-body Boeing 767 has a best glide ratio of about 20 to 1; that is, it can glide 20 feet forward for every foot of altitude it loses.

### What is the glide ratio of a 737?

Power Requirement to Keep a Jet Aircraft in the Air Assuming that a Boeing 737-300 has a similar glide ratio to a Boeing 747 of 17:1, a Boeing 737-300 has a descent speed of approximately (dh/dt)= (221m/sec)/17 = 13 m/sec.

**What is the glide ratio of a Cessna 182?**

9.3:1

The 182 has a glide ratio of 9.3:1, which is typical. Most singles have glide ratios between 8.0:1 and 10:1.

## What is the glide ratio of a Cessna 152?

about 9:1

An example of this can be determined by looking at the classic airplane trainer, a Cessna 152. At 60 knots, the published VBG, you find the descent rate about 6.5 to 7 kts, yielding a glide ratio of about 9:1.

**What is best glide speed?**

Best glide speed is the airspeed at which the aircraft glides the farthest with the least loss of altitude. If faced with a forced landing situation, the best airspeed depends on what you’re trying to do.

### What is the glide ratio of a 737 800?

Figure a 3:1 glide ratio roughly. Depending on weight, temperature and other variables. So 90,000 feet or 15 nautical miles.

**What is the glide ratio of an Airbus A320?**

The glide ratio of a clean A320 is 17:1 which means it can travel 17 units of distance forwards for every 1 unit of distance downward at best glide speed.

## What is the aspect ratio of the Mooney M20?

The Mooney M20 has medium aspect-ratio tapered wings with 1.5 degrees of washout and 5.5 degrees of dihedral.

**What kind of wings does a Mooney M20 have?**

The Mooney M20 has medium aspect-ratio tapered wings with 1.5 degrees of washout and 5.5 degrees of dihedral. Later models were equipped with stall strips to improve the stall characteristics. The empennage of the Mooney M20 is easily recognizable by its unique tail fin with a vertical leading edge.

### How many seats does a M20 have?

Although all M20s have four seats, the fuselage length increase provided more rear passenger legroom, but with a slight performance decrease: for a similar engine and vintage, a long-body plane is 4 to 6 knots slower than the short-body plane.

**What is the difference between the Ford M20K and M20S Eagle?**

The M20K Encore was released in 1997, an M20K with more horsepower and a higher gross weight, giving it performance similar to the original M20K. It also had an improved interior and reduced cabin noise levels. The M20S Eagle, released in 1999, was powered by a 244 hp (182 kW) Continental IO-550-G.
