  1. KIAS
    Knot indicated airspeed, shown on airspeed indicator
  2. KCAS
    Knots calibrated airspeed: Speed shown on the airspeed indicator corrected for instrument and position error
  3. KTAS
    Knots true airspeed: relative to undisturbed air, it is KCAS corrected for pressure altitude and temperature
  4. Vne
    Never exceed airspeed
  5. Vy
    Speed for best rate of climb
  6. Vh
    stabilized level-flight speed for maximum continuous power
  7. MSL
    Mean sea level: altitude above sea level indicated in feet by the altimeter, when the barometric subscale is set to the atmospheric pressure existing at sea level
  8. Pressure altitude
    Altitude in feet, indicated by the altimeter, when the barometric subscale is set to 29.92 Hg
  9. Density altitude
    Altitude in feet, in ISA conditions in which the air would have the same density
  10. ISA
