    HSI
    RMI
    • VHF Omnidirectional Radio
    • Horizondal Situation Indicator
    • Radio Magnetic Indicator
  2. HSI/VOR course deviation scale (dots)
    Each dot is a 2 degree deviation, which is 200 feet per NM
  3. How to calculate time and distance to a station
    TIME
    DISTANCE
    • Time: Time for bearing change (minutes) x 60 divided by
    •                    Degrees of bearing change
    • Distance: Time to station (minutes) x TAS (NM/min) divided by                Degrees of bearing change 
  4. Relative Bearing:
    Magnetic Bearing:
    • Angle between the needle and the aircraft nose reference
    • Magnetic heading, plus relative bearing = Magnetic Bearing
