Correct answer is... 175 km/h. It is equal to 95 kn or 109 mph.
A cruise speed is the speed of a plane in relation to the air masses surrounding it. If we wanted to figure out how fast the plane is moving in relation to earth we would have to take into account the factor of wind. In windless weather the cruise speed equals the speed in relation to earth. However, the higher the plane flies the stronger the wind.
To give an example, the cruise speed of de Havilland Dragon flying at 500 meters against the wind of 40 km/h will equal 135 km/h. With the wind, it will equal 135 km/h. If there is a side wind, the speed will vary between 135 and 215 km/h, depending on whether it’s more against or with the wind.
