HPOUND created the topic: Nav practice test 1 - Minor corrections
Minor corrections required.
(1) Referring to this question in Nav practice test 1:
Refer to the Bourke WAC.
You are on a flight from ST GEORGE (YSGE) (2803S 14836E) to WALGETT (YWLG) (3002S 14807E). You departed YSGE at 0308UTC. At 0324UTC you crossed the railway line (approximately 35 nm SE YSGE) and fixed your position between Bonathorne railway station and NOONDOO township.
Using track error lines you estimate that the track error from YSGE to the 0324UTC position is 8 degrees right. You now alter HDG 16 degrees left to intercept the planned TR.
The aircraft should intercept the planned track at time ‐ Select one:
0335 UTC / 0355 UTC / 0340 UTC / 0330 UTC
The position refers to crossing the railway line 35nm SE of YSGE b/w Bonathorne and Noondoo township. However, this point is in fact SW of YSGE.
(2) As mentioned by an earlier post, some of the practice questions refer to the Bourke WAC, and many students may not have purchased this given it isn't a requirement for the exam. Would it be worth changing these questions to refer to routes on the Sydney WAC?
