If you’re considering a career as a professional pilot, it’s important that you understand the four different types of airspeed. This information will allow you to be a safer and more confident pilot. In this article, we will discuss the four types of airspeed and some information about each of them.
These things are important to know. For example, if your airspeed indication shows a stall speed of 55 knots IAS, your aircraft could actually stall at a CAS of 60 knots. The differences between CAS and IAS can depend on the type of aircraft you’re operating as well as many other factors.
Here at Elevate Aviation, we want to make sure that our students feel comfortable operating their aircraft. For more information about learning to become a professional pilot, please contact our Salt Lake City Cirrus training and flight school today!
