  • Why Is True Airspeed So Inaccurate

    Sorry if I'm being silly but I don't understand how an aircraft have a speed of 2,249 mph.

    Hi Grahamjohson10,

    The True Airspeed reading is providing directly from the aircraft in the extended Mode-S transmission. Unfortunately as this data is feed to us directly from an aircraft there can be errors and this appears to be a situation where you can see one of them.

    For further information about extended Mode-S data please check out our blog post below:
