The wingspan an airplane is the distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip.

For example, the Boeing 777-200 has a wingspan of 60.93 metres (199 ft 11 in), and a wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans) caught in 1965 had a wingspan of 3.63 metres (11 ft 11 in), the official record for a living bird.

In humans, the term wingspan also refers to the arm span, which is the distance between the length from one end of an individual’s arms (measured at the fingertips) to the other when raised parallel to the ground at shoulder height at a 90º angle.

The US Federal Aviation Administration defines a large aircraft as any aircraft with a certificated maximum takeoff weight of more than 12,500 lb (5,700 kg)

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) defines a large aircraft as either “an aeroplane with a maximum take-off mass of more than 5,700 kilograms (12,600 pounds) or a multi-engined helicopter.
