How to Calculate the True Airspeed of the Airplane

In order to calculate the True Airspeed of the Airplane we require the altitude at which the airplane is flying from which we extract the temperature value at that altitude in Kelvin (K).

 

 

Furthermore, we require the pressure measured by the Pitot Tube in N/m^2.

 

And the Ambient value of the temperature in Kelvin (K).

 

Performing the calculation, gives us,

the Speed of sound at that altitude and

the true Airspeed Vtrue of the Airplane in m/s.
