Airspeed is the speed of an aircraft relative to the air.

Airspeed may also refer to:

Specific measures of airspeed[edit]

  • Calibrated airspeed (CAS), indicated airspeed, corrected for instrument error and position error
  • Equivalent airspeed(EAS), the airspeed at sea level which represents the same dynamic pressure as that flying at the true airspeed at altitude
  • Indicated airspeed (IAS), the airspeed read directly from the airspeed indicator on an aircraft
  • True airspeed (TAS), the speed of an aircraft relative to the airmass in which it flies
