While doing a test in the car he said: "Thus the information on speed would be accurate in calm conditions or flying downwind but into the wind considerations of the wind's speed are necessary as the wind added to the reading."

He seems not to understand that driving downwind the speed of the wind will make the indicated airspeed less.

Later, when talking about a test in the air he said: "That speed was probably 86 miles per hour on a calm day or down wind but maybe only 76 MPH into a ten mile per hour wind."

Here he seems not to understand that the indicated airspeed of a plane in flight is affected at all whether the plane is going up or down wind.

Maybe you also don't understand fully?
