* the calibrated airspeed, using the vc option (or alternately, the Mach number, using the mach option)
You can also set the heading using the heading option, but note that the heading is in degrees true rather than degrees magnetic, so in some parts of North America it can be more than 30 degrees different than runway alignment.

fgfs --altitude=5000 --heading=0 --vc=110
