The President of the United States is flying on a private plane to Andrews Air Force Base to jump on his jumbo jet to fly to California. Currently the speed of the plane he is in is traveling at 250 nautical MPH and he is currently 500 nautical miles from Andrews Air Force Base. It will take approximately 5 mins for him to switch planes and 5 mins to gain clearance for takeoff. Taking all of this into consideration. How long will it take for The President of The United States to be airborne aboard Air Force One?


Answer

No time at all.

He is currently aboard "Air Force One". No matter what plane The President of the United States is aboard, its call sign is "Air Force One." So The President is on "Air Force One" even when aboard the private plane and once he switches to the jumbo jet then it becomes "Air Force One".
