Takeoff and initial climb performance depend on rotating at the correct airspeed and proper rate to the rotation target attitude. Early or rapid rotation may cause a tail strike. Late, slow, or under-rotation increases take-off ground roll. Any improper rotation decreases initial climb flight path.

An improper rotation can have an effect on the command speed after lift off. If the rotation is delayed beyond V2+20, the speed commanded by the flight director is rotation speed up to a maximum of V2 + 25. An earlier lift off does not affect the commanded initial climb speed, however, either case degrades overall takeoff performance.
