Re: There's a thought....

A post that demonstrates that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

I was going to start correcting the errors (perhaps staring with simple things like "reported airspeed" and "truespeed"), but I'd have been here all night. However in the interests of helping out, perhaps I could just boil the post down to the undoubtedly correct sentiment that "pressure altitude is not the same as height and it can be dangerous to conflate them"?
