One more question to the experts:
When doing 1-in-60 exercises I am having a problem to calculate the New HDG after Intercept (M).
For example:
Given
FPT= 273 M, Heading held= 274 M, Distance along Track= 80 nm, Distance off Track = 13 nm left, Distance to re-join Track= 50 nm.
I have found Track Error= 10 , TMG = 263 , Drift = 11 left, Closing angle = 16, TTI = 289, and HDG to Intercept = 300 M.
I just missing the step of how to calculate the new HDG after Intercept.

Cheers,
Nikita

Hi Nikita,
Now that you have calculated the drift, 11° in this example, you can now apply it to your FPT. This will give you a new HDG which should keep you on track much better than what you originally planned. So we end up with planned track of 273° + 11° to the right = New HDG 284°.

Always found DR nav to be the most fun to do and it has saved my neck more than once when things like GPS and navaids failed.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Mister W.

Hello all,

My first post ever - and hope that there will be many more.

Just on the Pressure Height calculation, I got 13,740. That is 1013-1015 = -2x30 = 60 and 13800-60 0= 13740

How did we get 13510? What am I missing?

cheers

I think QNH 1015 was for the question below the one we're discussing. You had me thinking though!

I'm not sure M W... I saw 1015 in the very first post, so now I'm really confused :-S

Hi Abargri,

The actual question in the workbook is Alt: 13800 ft, QNH 1022 and OAT 22 degrees C. This gives the Pressure altitude of 13530 ft. There was a misprint in the first post which mentioned the QNH being 1015. I have edited Nikita's original post to make the QNH 1022.

If the QNH was indeed 1015, your calculation would be correct :)

Cheers,

Rich
