### What are kts in speed?

In both meteorology and sea and air navigation, a knot is a unit typically used to indicate wind speed. Mathematically, one knot is equal to about 1.15 statute miles. The abbreviation for a knot is “kt” or “kts,” if plural.

**What is kts Kotlin?**

A KTS file is a script written in the Kotlin programming language. It contains executable Kotlin source code. KTS files can be opened and edited in any text editor, and they can be executed using the Kotlin compiler (kotlinc).

**Why does aviation use nautical miles?**

Ships use longitude and latitude as their historical form of navigation. So it was natural to use nautical miles because 1 nautical mile is one minute of arc in the latitude world. Aircraft eventually adopted knots.

### What is KTAS in aviation?

Knots True Airspeed (KTAS) is different than indicated airspeed. KTAS does not take pressure into account. Indicated airspeed (IAS) measures speed along with changes in pressure. Consider KTAS as the speed a plane would be going on the ground, while IAS offers a more accurate measurement in the air.
