Abstract:

Pressure-airspeed tables based on the latest established value for the nautical mile and the physical constants and atmospheric properties adopted for the International Civil Aviation Organization ICAO standard atmosphere are presented. Impact pressures are given for airspeeds up to 1,000 knots and 1,100 miles per hour. Pre sure-altitude tables are given for altitudes up to 100,000 geopotential feet. Mach number in terms of the ratio impact pressure to freestream static pressure for Mach numbers from 0.10 to 5.00 are given. True airspeeds are tabulated for calibrated airspeeds from 100 to 1,000 knots and for altitudes from 0 to 100,000 geopotential feet.
