How to Convert Seconds Into Miles Per Hour

The nautical mile is based on the circumference of the earth. If we take a slice of the earth through the equator we can get a flat circle which can be divided into 360 degrees (as if you were navigating using a compass). Each degree, can be split into 60 equal parts called minutes, the length of one of these minutes is equal to 1 nautical mile. By comparison, a nautical mile is equal to 1.85 kilometres or 1.15 miles.

A nautical mile is based on the circumference of the earth, and is equal to one minute of latitude. It is slightly more than a statute (land measured) mile (1 nautical mile = 1.1508 statute miles). Nautical miles are used for charting and navigating.

Ask the pilot: Why is airspeed on planes measured in knots?

Ask the pilot: Why is airspeed on planes measured in knots?

In aviation, there are several different airspeeds (in knots) that we use. Indicated -Airspeed (IAS) is the speed shown on an aircraft’s standard pitot-static airspeed indicator. True Airspeed (TAS) is the speed of an aircraft relative to undisturbed air, while Groundspeed (GS) is the speed of an aircraft relative to the ground (true airspeed corrected for wind).

With this simple unit conversion tool, you can quickly convert any wind speed from an initial unit (miles per hour, feet per second, meters per second, knots, and kilometers per hour) to all other units listed. This is very helpful when you quickly need to see what one measure equates to in other units.

Unstabilised Approach: Inappropriate ATC Speed Instructions

Adventure novels and history books are filled with harrowing stories of sailing ships delayed at sea — tales of sailors running low on food and fresh water, dying of scurvy, and getting trapped in the doldrums, or the tropics during storm season. Unless sailors knew how fast they were going, they could end up days off schedule, endangering those on board and worrying loved ones awaiting them in port.
