Assignment Sheet No. 4.4.1A
Aircraft operate in a dynamic environment. To ensure flight safety and accurate navigation
solutions, aircrew must be familiar with the principles of pressure and altitude in order to
understand and apply them to an accurate True Airspeed solution. As one of the four basic
elements of DR, an understanding of airspeeds allows the aircrew to accurately maintain a
