IAS (Indicated Air Speed)
« on: June 18, 2010, 09:32:49 PM »
Hello, I'm new to this board so please be gentle with me.

Why is there no data in the IAS section of My Flights and Network?

Well you will occasionally see values in that column, but they are True Air Speeds (TAS) and not Indicated Air Speeds (IAS):
