Formulae are derived by which take-off performance measurements may be standardized. These formulae are easy to use and they apply, with suitable numerical constants, to airplanes with any type of propulsive system, including mixed types and types using part-time assistance or boost. Numerical constants are proposed for use with these formulae. Experimental data available support those constsants but are insufficient to check them completely.
