Compared to that of a plane on the ground, is Earth's gravitational pull on a plane 7 miles above Earth approximately the same?

    Yes. It's approximately the same, but not exactly.

    The weight of an object 7 miles above the Earth's surface (the gravitational force on it) is about 0.35% less than it is down on the surface.
