    Dimitris – what exactly is your question? KIAS is probably ‘Knots Indicated Air Speed’….but I’m not agreeing with the statement…..is there something else you’re getting at??

    Well – assuming a well trimmed airplane – decreasing 100 rpm shouldn’t change your speed at all – it will just climb (if you added) or descend (if you removed power)….
