Most common properties of air that directly influence the flight of an aircraft are temperature, pressure, density and humidity(Attwooll, 2010, McClamroch, 2011), and how do they affect a flight, is discussed below: Properties of air and their correlation: Air pressure and air temperature are directly associated with each other. Before...
