Calibrated Airspeed (CAS)

Technology / Aviation / Calibrated Airspeed (CAS): The indicated airspeed of an aircraft, corrected for position and instrument error. CAS is equal to true airspeed in standard atmosphere at sea level. Compare INDICATED AIRSPEED and TRUE AIRSPEED.

Indicated Airspeed (IAS)

Technology / Aviation / Indicated Airspeed (IAS): A direct instrument reading obtained from an air speed indicator uncorrected for altitude, temperature, atmospheric density, or instrument error. Compare CALIBRATED AIRSPEED and TRUE AIRSPEED. MORE

Calibrated Airspeed (CAS)

Technology / Aviation / Calibrated Airspeed (CAS): The indicated airspeed of an aircraft, corrected for position and instrument error. CAS is equal to true airspeed in standard atmosphere at sea level. Compare INDICATED AIRSPEED and TRUE AIRSPEED. MORE

Airspeed Indicator

Technology / Aviation / Airspeed Indicator: An instrument or device that measures the airspeed of an aircraft through an air mass but not its groundspeed. MORE
