Card Set Information
where your aircraft is pointed
shown on the HSI
an imaginary line extending outward from a NAVAID
the desired track to or from a navigational aid
Is the outbound course intercept the same as a radial intercept?
flying FROM the VOR, course and radial are the same
Is the inbound course intercept the same as a radial intercept?
Flying TO the VOR, the radial is opposite the course
What is TIM
In a no-wind 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.
In GPS mode, full scale deflection of the CDI indicates ____ off course.
The act of using your instrument displays to select and fly a course
intercepting a course that will take you to the selected station. TO
intercepting a course that will take you from the selected station. FROM
the heading you choose to fly to accomplish a course intercept
the angle between your intercept heading and your desired course
What is Fix-to-Fix 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 fix-to-fix procedural steps:
flying a constant distance from a VORTAC or VOR/DME station by reference to DME
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=
Lead point in radials=
NM/min -2x(60/ARC DME)
60-1 rule states that at 60NM from the station, radials are one mile apart. At 30NM there are ___ radials for each mile?
Outside 15NM, using and intercept angle of 30 degrees, apply how many degrees of lead prior to turn?
Inside of 15NM, using a intercept angle of 30 degrees, apply how many degrees of lead prior to turn?
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
