Re: Aeroperu crash question for pilots

The airspeed would have indicated fairly accurately during takeoff, until they started to climb. Then the change in pressure would have also changed the airspeed, with the altimeter being useless. Hope that helps.

By the way this is a failure you can simulate in x-plane.

Since I mentioned it, the oculus is fantastic in xplane 11.
