Does anyone know a good, simple way to convert GS to AS?

As the question says. I’m trying to work out speeds for different aircrafts. Thanks guys! 😄

As you probably know, there’s so many factors, like wind speed and direction, altitude, etc. I say, just have both airspeed and ground speed in your menu bar on the bottom. That’s how mine’s set up

There is no easy way as it depends on:
-airspeed
-wind speed
-wind direction
-pressure
-temperature

I would say, the easiest way is to let the app convert it for you

What app? Do you mean IF?

Yes, just let IF convert it for you.

In the bottom menu/bar. Set one of them to show the GS.

No as it depends on air pressure as well as other factors.

Most important speeds are IAS and Mach number.

Yep here you go have fun.


The E6B is taught to anyone entering the airman world. Effective and time saving the E6B allows you to calculate a ton of aviation knowledge. True airspeed, wind correction angle, ground speed, fuel burn, weight and balance. Great tool for every aviators flight bag.

Shame it isn’t in my currency!

I’m sure they sell them where ever you are as well
