Depends on the type of jet.
The Cessna Citation (500/501/550/560) etc all the straight wing aircraft can land at 110kts.
Also - when flying in the jumpseat on Transbrasil 767-200 (back in 1997) from GRU to GIG we approached the GIG airport at 129kts. (We also use 5 degrees flaps for tkeoff - something we dont do here in the USA)
(A) A weight probably typical for empty airplane, two pilots, enough fuel to make a takeoff and landing with reserves.
(B) Stall speed, or minimum steady flight speed in the landing configuration.

Boeing 737-300; Flaps 40; Landing Weight of 78000 lbs (A) gives me a VSO (B) extrapolated from VREF chart is 82.3 knots.
Same airplane at 132300 lbs, same flaps, the speed is 112.3 Knots.
|Quoting Ward86IND (Reply 16):
I find this extremely hard to believe....132,300 lbs on the 733 is quite a load...i would expect a VREF in the 140 knot range at least...
|Quoting SlamClick (Reply 17):|
You are quite right.
You are talking about VREF
I posted VSO which, again, is stall speed or minimum steady flight speed in the landing configuration. (in this case Flaps 40)
|Quoting 2H4 (Reply 23):|
Even less with the right treadmill...
|Quoting Airbuster (Reply 25):|
airbii use air from the bleed system to blow over the trailing edge of the wing, to so increase the lifting force of the wing at lower speeds without the need to fly faster. Resulting in a reduced FAS. anyone that can confirm the story
