Homework Consider a Boeing 767-300ER. Calculate the velocity in knots (nautical miles per hour) for a) maximum endurance and b) maximum range at 1) 10,000 ft and 2) 36,000 ft. Solution For a turbojet aircraft, the velocity at maximum endurance is V me = b 4 π eA ρ 2 o σ 2 ( W / S ) 2 ( f / S ) B 1 / 4 For the Boeing 767-300ER, A = 7 . 9, e = 0 . 7, W = 387 , 000 lbf, S = 3084 ft 2 , b = 156 . 1 ft and f = 127 . 5 ft 2 . Thus V me = 243
