Was playing with it last night. I was on the Aerodynamics page and kept looking at the TAS - 560Kts, that can't be correct, back to the Speeds page - TAS - 331Kts now that more like it, matches GPS - standard day set. What the heck!!!:-eek Opened the PDF again, OH!!! Aero page TAS - ft/sec; Speed page TAS - Kts!!!:-lolMaybe we can get Herve' to put some units by same name variables.:)

Though I like to see the units by the number. That 'Aerodynamics' Window is all based on Engineering units. For example, CD = Thust/(Q*S). Where Thrust is in lb, S is Wing area in ft^2, and Q is Dynamic Pressure in ft/sec. I guess you need to view the 'Speeds' window to see kts. ;)
