How Fast Does a Plane Go?

Answer

Speeds of an aeroplane depend on the type of plane. Small, one-engine propeller planes (reciprocating engines) fly at speeds of 80 to 200 mph (130 to 320 km/hr). Jet airliners at cruising altitude average around 500 to 600 mph (800 to 960 km/hr). Military turboprops cruise at 350 mph (560 km/hr) and jet fighters routine exceed the speed of sound (768 mph or 1235 km/hr at sea level).
