What is the difference between lift off and take off?

As per aviation terminology, take-off is the distance covered by an airplane from the start of take-off roll to the point the airplane is 1500 feet above the take-off surface. Lift off is when the airplane becomes airborne, that is when the main wheels lift off the ground.

How to Calculate Liftoff distance?

Liftoff distance calculator uses Liftoff Distance=1.44*(Weight^2)/([g]*Freestream density*Reference Area*Maximum Lift Coefficient*Thrust of an aircraft) to calculate the Liftoff Distance, The Liftoff distance is a function of weight, altitude, maximum coefficient of lift, and thrust of the aircraft (ignoring drag and rolling resistance). Liftoff Distance and is denoted by sLO symbol.

FAQ

What is Liftoff distance?
The Liftoff distance is a function of weight, altitude, maximum coefficient of lift, and thrust of the aircraft (ignoring drag and rolling resistance) and is represented as sLO=1.44*(W^2)/([g]*ρ*S*CL,max*T) or Liftoff Distance=1.44*(Weight^2)/([g]*Freestream density*Reference Area*Maximum Lift Coefficient*Thrust of an aircraft). Weight is a vector quantity and defined as the product of mass and acceleration acting on that mass, Freestream density is the mass per unit volume of air far upstream of an aerodynamic body at a given altitude, The Reference Area is arbitrarily an area that is characteristic of the object being considered. For an aircraft wing, the wing's planform area is called the reference wing area or simply wing area, Maximum Lift Coefficient is defined as the lift coefficient of the airfoil at stalling angle of attack and The Thrust of an aircraft is defined as the force generated through propulsion engines that move an aircraft through the air.
How to calculate Liftoff distance?
