CALIBRATED AIRSPEED
Given an IAS, it will be necessary to calculate the CAS because it is a more accurate value
to use when calculating the TAS. Looking at the instrument calibration card (Figure 4.4-5),
an IAS of 255 knots equates to a TAS of 252 knots. Since there is not a 255 (IAS)
available on the calibration card it is necessary to use the closest value of 253 (IAS). At
253 knots (IAS) the correction factor is 3 knots to arrive at a CAS of 250 knots. Therefore,
the same correction factor, -3 knots, would be applied to an IAS of 255 to arrive at a CAS
of 252. This would be an example of correcting for instrument error.
Once CAS is calculated, the TAS can be solved for using the CR3 navigation computer.
