# What is the cruise speed of Douglas YOA-5?

Correct answer is... 245 km/h. It is equal to 132 kn or 152 mph.

A cruise speed is the speed of a plane in relation to the air masses surrounding it. If we wanted to figure out how fast the plane is moving in relation to earth we would have to take into account the factor of wind. In windless weather the cruise speed equals the speed in relation to earth. However, the higher the plane flies the stronger the wind.

To give an example, the cruise speed of Douglas YOA-5 flying at 400 meters against the wind of 30 km/h will equal 215 km/h. With the wind, it will equal 215 km/h. If there is a side wind, the speed will vary between 215 and 275 km/h, depending on whether it’s more against or with the wind.
