Vso

58 MPH

Stall speed in a landing configuration. ; the calibrated power-off stalling speed or the minimum steady flight speed at which the airplane is controllable in the landing configuration.

2

Vs1

64.5 MPH

Stalling speed clean or in a specified configuration; the calibrated power-off stalling speed or the minimum steady flight speed at which the airplane is controllable in a specified config.

3

Vy

87 MPH

Best RATE-of-climb speed. the calibrated airspeed at which the airplane will obtain the maximum increase in altitude per unit of time. This best rate of climb speed normally decreases slightly with altitude.

4

Vx

66 MPH

Best ANGLE-of-climb speed; the calibrated airspeed at which the aircraft will obtain the highest altitude in a given horizontal distance.

5

Vle

Maximum landing gear extended speed.

6

Vlo

Maximum landing gear operating speed.

7

Vfe

125 MPH

Maximum flap extension speed; the highest calibrated airspeed permissible with the flaps in a prescribed extended position.

8

Va

124 MPH

Maneuvering speed; the calibrated design maneuvering airspeed. This is the maximum speed at which the limit load can be imposed w/o causing structural damage.

9

Vno

140 MPH

Normal operating speed. the maximum calibrated airspeed for normal operation or the maximum structural cruise speed.

10

Vne

176 MPH

Never exceed speed.
