Computing True Airspeed
The spreadsheet AirspeedFromThreeTracks.xls
Computes the actual true airspeed of a plane given three GPS tracks
taken at the same airspeed. Given three GPS tracks at the same
airspeed you can compute a complete solution for the heading on each
track and the TAS. The spreadsheet contains actual data taken at low
altitude in Lancair IV-P N776CM. Additional data will be added to the
spreadsheet as it is collected for other altitudes.
The method came from a good discussion by Doug Grey which can be found at:
