Aviation Rules of Thumb

Convert Mach Number to Indicated Airspeed (IAS)

PREVIOUS Convert Knots to Miles per Hour -- Index -- Distance Travelled Based on Ground Speed NEXT

Mach speed = Airspeed / 60
Airspeed = Mach speed * 60

Miles flown per minute = Mach speed * 10
Mach speed = miles per minute * 10

example: 450 KIAS = ... Mach ? => 450 / 600 = .75 Mach
.70 Mach = ... KIAS ? => 0.70 * 600 = 420 kts IAS

.75 Mach => 7.5 nm per minute
7.8 nm per minute => .78 Mach
