rolling takeoff

rolling takeoff
Any takeoff by a helicopter, tilt rotor, or other VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft in which it rolls on the ground for some time and accelerates before leaving the ground. In fixed-wing aircraft, a rolling takeoff is one in which the aircraft does not stop on the runway when it enters from the taxi track but continues the takeoff by opening the throttle either during the turn on the runway or immediately after rolling out.
