Density Altitude - Wing Loading Converter

Your effective wing loading may change as the density altitude changes. These calculators show the effects. Select the wing loading and density altitudes and click the 'Calculate' button.
Optional: If you want canopy sizes calculated, enter your exit weight in pounds: .

Equivalent Performance

A Wing Loading of at Density Altitude
has the same performance (trajectories, velocities and accelerations) as
a Wing Loading of 1 at Density Altitude.



Comment: If you want your sight picture (aka visual references) to remain the same
between Sea Level Density Altitude and Sea Level Density Altitude then you must
change your Wing Loading from 1 to 1.

Performance Change

If you jump a Wing Loading of at Density Altitude
and change to Density Altitude then that would be like flying
a Wing Loading of 1 at Sea Level Density Altitude.



Comment: Jumping your 1 Wing Loading at Sea Level would be as though you decreased your wing loading to 1 at Sea Level Density Altitude.
Your sight picture will change. The rate of change of distances will be slower.
