A frequently quoted rule of thumb in aircraft design is that

A frequently quoted rule of thumb in aircraft design is that wings should produce about 1000 N of lift per square meter of wing. (The fact that a wing has a top and bottom surface does not double its area.) (a) At takeoff, an aircraft travels at 58.1 m/s, which is the airspeed just below the wing.
