What’s in a name? rotate.co.nz
Rotate is derived from the speeds and terminology used in the cockpit of aircraft and it reflects where we want to take your business and how we can help you.
There are three speeds pilots use during take-off. The first one is the decision speed at which stopping is no longer possible and the aeroplane is committed to fly. This is known as V1.
The second speed is when the nose should be raised and the airplane is rotated into the climb attitude, known as Vr. When the airplane attains the Vr speed, the pilot who is not manipulating the controls calls “Rotate,” then the flying pilot applies aft yoke or side stick to raise the nose.
