Define heading
 where your aircraft is pointed
 shown on the HSI

Define Radial
an imaginary line extending outward from a NAVAID

Define course
the desired track to or from a navigational aid

Is the outbound course intercept the same as a radial intercept?
 Yes
 flying FROM the VOR, course and radial are the same

Is the inbound course intercept the same as a radial intercept?
 No
 Flying TO the VOR, the radial is opposite the course


In a nowind situation, which two statements are always true?
 The head of the bearing pointer will fall
 The tail of the bearing pointer will rise

How much displacement does each dot indicate on the HSI?
5 degrees of displacement

Since both the bearing pointer and the CDI provide course information, the displays are consistent when within ___ of the selected course.
10 degrees

In GPS mode, full scale deflection of the CDI indicates ____ off course.
5NM

Course intercept
The act of using your instrument displays to select and fly a course

Inbound intercept
intercepting a course that will take you to the selected station. TO

Outbound intercept
intercepting a course that will take you from the selected station. FROM

Intercept heading
the heading you choose to fly to accomplish a course intercept

Intercept angle
the angle between your intercept heading and your desired course

What is FixtoFix navigation? what is required?
 used to fly from one fix to another using a direct track
 DME and a bearing pointer are required

How can the time required to proceed to the new fix be derived?
estimating the distance between the two fixes using distance from the center to the outer edge on the EHSI

How to determine ETA to the new fix?
Divide the distance by groundspeed in miles per minute

First three fixtofix procedural steps:

Arcing
flying a constant distance from a VORTAC or VOR/DME station by reference to DME

601 rule
in order to determine the number on NM/min your aircraft is flying, you should use the relationship of KTAS divided by 60 = NM/min for all aircraft

Lead point in DME=
NM/602

Lead point in radials=
NM/min 2x(60/ARC DME)

601 rule states that at 60NM from the station, radials are one mile apart. At 30NM there are ___ radials for each mile?
2

Outside 15NM, using and intercept angle of 30 degrees, apply how many degrees of lead prior to turn?
2

Inside of 15NM, using a intercept angle of 30 degrees, apply how many degrees of lead prior to turn?
4

How do you correct if you are outside the arc?
10 degrees above wingtip per 1/2 mile

How do you correct if you are inside the arc?
5 degrees below the wingtip per 1/2 mile
