The speed at which engine failure is assumed to occur is selected by the aircraft manufacturer and is referred to as the "critical engine failure speed V1". If an engine actually fails prior to this selected speed, the pilot brakes to a stop. If the engine fails at a speed greater than V1, the pilot has no choice but to continue the takeoff.
