CHAPTER 1 THE EARTH The earth is not a perfect sphere, there is a slight bulge at the Equator and a flattening at the Poles. The earth's shape is described as an oblate spheroid. The polar diameter is 6860.5 nm which is 23.2 nm shorter than the average equatorial diameter of 6883.7 nm. This gives a compression ratio of 1/2967 which for all practical purposes can be ignored. Cartographers and Inertial Navigation systems will take the true shape of the earth into account.

PARALLELS OF LATITUDE Parallels of Latitude are small circles that are parallel to the Equator. They lie in a 090 and 270 Rhumb Line direction as they cut all Meridians at 90. LATITUDE The Latitude of a point is the arc of a Meridian from the Equator to the point. It is expressed in degrees and minutes North or South of the Equator. It can be presented in the following forms. N 27:30

GREAT CIRCLE (GC)

A Great Circle is a circle drawn on the surface of a sphere whose centre and radius are those of the sphere itself. A Great Circle divides the sphere into two halves. The Equator is a Great Circle dividing the earth into the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. On a flat surface the shortest distance between TWO points is a straight line. On a sphere the shortest distance between two points is the shorter arc of a Great Circle drawn through the two points. To fly from Europe to the West Coast of America the shortest distance is of course a Great Circle which usually takes the least time and fuel used. A Great Circle cuts all Meridians at different angles. RHUMB LINE (RL) A Rhumb Line is a curved line drawn on the surface of the earth which cuts all Meridians at the same angle. An aircraft steering a constant heading of 065(T) with zero wind will be flying a Rhumb Line. MERIDIANS Meridians are Great semi-circles that join the North and South Poles. Every Great Circle passing through the poles forms a Meridian and its Anti-Meridian. All Meridians indicate True North or 000(T) and 180(T). As Meridians have a constant direction they are Rhumb Lines as well as Great Circles. EQUATOR The Equator cuts all Meridians at 90 providing a True East-West or 090(T) and 270(T) erection. As the Equator cuts all Meridians at 90 it is a Rhumb Line as well as a Great Circle.

SMALL CIRCLE A Small Circle is a circle drawn on a sphere whose centre and radius are not those of the sphere itself.

DIRECTION True North True North is the direction of the Meridian passing through a position. True Direction Aircraft Heading or Track is measured clockwise from True North. It is usually expressed in degrees and decimals of a degree, e.g. 092(T) 107.25GC 265.37 RL Magnetic North Magnetic North is the direction in the horizontal plane indicated by a freely suspended magnet influenced by the earth's magnetic field only. Variation Variation is the angular difference between True North and Magnetic North

Magnetic Direction (M)

Aircraft Magnetic Heading or Magnetic Track is measured clockwise from Magnetic North, which is sometimes referred to as the Magnetic Meridian, e.g. 100(M)

Compass North (C) Compass North is the direction indicated by the compass needle in an aircraft. Magnetic Fields in the aircraft will attract the compass needle away from Magnetic North causing Compass Deviation. Deviation The angular difference between Compass North and Magnetic North.

Deviation is Westerly when Compass North is to the West of Magnetic North Deviation is Easterly when Compass North is to the East of Magnetic North

DEVIATION EAST COMPASS LEAST

DEVIATION WEST COMPASS BEST

Deviation West is Negative (-) Deviation East is Positive (+) Deviation is a correction to Compass Heading to give Magnetic Heading

CONVERGENCE AND CONVERSION ANGLE CONVERGENCE Meridians are Semi Great Circles joining the North and South Poles. They are parallel at the Equator. As the meridians leave the Equator either Northwards or Southwards they converge and meet at the Poles.

Convergence is defined as the angle of inclination between two selected meridians measured at a given Latitude.

Considering the two meridians shown above, one at 20W and the other at 20E. The Change of Longitude (Ch. Long) or Difference in Longitude (D Long) between the two meridians is 40. At the Equator (Latitude 0) they are parallel, the angle of convergence is 0. At the Poles (Latitude 90) they meet, and the angle of convergence is the Difference of Longitude, 40.

At any intermediate Latitude the angle of inclination between the same two meridians will between 0 and 40 depending on the Latitude. This is a sine relationship, convergence varies as Sine of the Mean Latitude. Convergence also varies as the Change of Longitude between the two meridians. The greater the Ch. Long, the greater the convergence. Convergence = Ch. Long x Sine Mean Latitude CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

DISTANCE Kilometre (KM.) A Kilometre is 1/10 000 th. part of the average distance from the Equator to either Pole. It is generally accepted to equal 3280 feet. Statute Mile (SM) Defined in British law as 5280 feet. Nautical Mile (NM) A Nautical Mile is defined as the distance on the surface of the earth of one minute of arc at the centre of the earth. As the earth is not a perfect sphere the distance is variable. At the Equator I NM is 6046.4 feet

At the pole 1 NM -Is 6078 feet

For navigation purposes the Standard Nautical Mile is 6080 feet (South Africa and UK) ICAO 1 NM = 1852 metres or 6076.1 feet Most navigational electronic calculators use I NM = 6076.1 feet. To answer questions in the CAA examinations any of the following may be used :1 NM Conversion Factors

= 6080 feet or 1852 metres

1 Foot = 12 inches 1 Inch = 2.54 Centimetres

As one minute of arc is 1 NM, then Great Circle distance along a Meridian can be calculated. One minute of Latitude is 1 NM and 1Degree of Latitude is 60 NM. The Great Circle distance from N75:30 E065:45 to N82:15 W114:15 is:As W114:15 is the anti-meridian of E065:45 the Great Circle distance is along a Meridian over the Pole where 1 of Latitude equals 1 nm.

CHANGE OF LONGITUDE (CH. LONG) or DEPARTURE DISTANCE Departure is the distance in Nautical Miles along a parallel of Latitude in an East-West direction. At the Equator, two meridians (5W and 5E) have a change of Longitude of 10 of arc. As the Equator is a Great Circle, 10 of arc equals 600 nautical miles. As Latitude increases, either to the North or to the South, the meridians converge, and the distance between them decreases, until they meet at the Poles where the distance between them is zero. Departure (nm) = ch long (mins) x cos mean lat: CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

CHAPTER 2 CHART PROJECTION THEORY The original problem of map making is still with us even in the 21st century, how can you represent the curved surface of the earth on a flat piece of paper without distortion??? The answer is IT CANNOT BE DONE!! It’s the same as trying to flatten out a Orange peel, it too cannot be done. Charts which are produced by conic projections are used widely in aviation – mainly because conic projections “ 1. 2. 3. 4.

preserve true shapes preserve angular relationships (called conformal or orthomorphic) have a reasonably constant scale over the whole chart show great circle as straight lines..

Lets now look at the chart projections and properties that we as pilots are interested in: ORTHOMORPHISM Orthomorphism means true shape. In theory a cartographer starts with a 'reduced earth' which is the earth reduced by the required scale. The 'reduced earth' is a true undistorted representation of the earth. Details, such as Parallels of Latitude, Meridians and topographical features are 'projected' from the reduced earth onto a cylinder (Mercator's Projection), a cone (Lambert's Projection) or a flat sheet of paper (Polar Stereographic Projection). The ideal chart would possess the following features.     

Scale, both correct and constant Bearings correct Shapes correctly shown Areas correctly shown Parallels of Latitude and Meridians will intersect at 90

Unfortunately to reproduce a spherical surface on a flat sheet of paper is impossible. Distortions will occur. Only one of the above features can be shown correctly. If shapes and areas are approximately correct to enable map reading, then slight distortions can be tolerated. Bearings and scale must be correct, but we cannot have both.

The 1 nm square on the reduced earth is correct, the diagonal of a square is 45 and bearings are correct. The 1 nm square of the reduced earth projected onto a cylinder becomes a rectangle. Bearings are no longer correct. The scale has been expanded in the North/South direction to a greater degree than the East/West case. To overcome this problem the scale expansion North/South is reduced mathematically to equal the scale expansion East/West. The rectangle becomes a square and the diagonal is 45 Bearings are now correct. Meridians and Parallels of Latitude intersect at 90 Scale is expanded, but by the same amount in all directions over short distances. Shapes and areas are approximately correct and the chart is orthomorphic. On the Mercator, Lambert and Polar Stereographic charts the Parallels of Latitude are adjusted in the above manner. Bearings are correct but the scale is variable. SCALE Scale is the ratio of a line drawn on a chart to the corresponding distance on the surface of the earth. Statement In Words

LAMBERT CONFORMAL CONIC CHART The Lambert's chart was developed from the Simple Conic chart. Simple Conic A cone is placed over a reduced earth so it is tangential to a selected parallel of latitude. The apex of the cone is above the pole. A light source at the centre of the reduced earth projects details onto the cone. The cone is opened to give a simple conic projection.

CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 29

The scale is correct at the parallel of tangency (45N) and expands north and south of 45N. Due to the scale expansion the chart is not suitable for navigation.

The Meridians are straight lines converging on the nearer pole and the value of convergence is constant throughout the chart. Parallels of Latitude are arcs of circles radius the Pole.

CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 30

SIMPLE CONIC CONVERGENCE When the cone is opened, 360 of Longitude is represented by the angular extent of the chart which is 254.5584. The angular extent of the chart is controlled by the latitude chosen to be the parallel of tangency. Angular extent of the chart 254.5584 ______________________________ Change of Longitude 360

= 0.7071 Constant of the Cone or 'n' factor

Two Meridians 1 apart have a convergence 0.7071 and this is called the: CHART CONVERGENCE FACTOR (CCF) Parallel of Tangency 45 Sine 45 = 0.7071 = CCF = Constant of the Cone = 'n' factor

LAMBERT CONFORMAL CONIC CHART The Lambert's chart is based on the simple conic and is produced mathematically from it. Firstly, the scale is reduced throughout the chart. Since scale on the simple conic is correct only on the parallel of tangency and expands either side, the reduction will give two Standard Parallels (SP) on which scale is correct, one on either side of the simple conic parallel of tangency which is renamed the Parallel of Origin (// 0). Further mathematical modification is applied by adjusting the radius of the parallels of latitude to produce an orthomorphic projection. The above can be shown be lowering the simple conic cone so that it cuts the earth at the two Standard Parallels instead of the original parallel of tangency of the simple conic. Lambert's Chart Properties PARALLELS OF LATITUDE

SCALE

Correct at the two Standard Parallels Expands outside the Standard Parallels Contracts between the Standard Parallels Scale variation throughout 1:1 000 000 and 1:500 000 charts is negligible and can be considered constant if the band of Latitude projected is small and the Standard Parallels are positioned according to the one sixth rule. That is one sixth of that Latitude band from the top and bottom of the chart. Charts of the North Atlantic with a scale of 1:5 600 000 have a marked scale variation and care must be taken when measuring distances.

MERCATOR CHART Before the advent of Inertial Navigation, and GPS computers aircraft flew constant headings. They flew Rhumb Lines. The Mercator chart was constructed so that Rhumb Lines are straight lines and the headings flown were easily plotted.

A cylinder is positioned over the reduced earth tangential to the Equator. A light source at the centre of the reduced earth projects details of the reduced earth onto the cylinder and we have a Geometric Cylindrical Projection. After adjusting the Parallels of Latitude so that the scale expansion North/South equals the scale expansion East/West it becomes a Mercator chart.

PLOTTING ADF/NDB BEARINGS ADF bearings are presented to the pilot by either a RELATIVE BEARING INDICATOR (RBI) or by a RADIO MAGNETIC INDICATOR (RMI). RELATIVE BEARING INDICATOR (RBI) ADF bearings are measured clockwise from the fore and aft axis of the aircraft and are termed RELATIVE BEARINGS, that is relative to the aircraft's fore and aft axis. ADF Relative bearings must be converted into True Bearings (QTE) before they can be plotted on a chart,

RELATIVE BEARING + TRUE HEADING = GC QUJ ± CA = RL QUJ ± 180 = RL QTE

NB

The GC QUJ must be converted into a RL QUJ before the reciprocal is taken. The reciprocal of a Rhumb Line can always be taken, never the reciprocal of a Great Circle

MAGNETIC VARIATION AT THE AIRCRAFT IS ALWAYS USED WITH ADF BEARINGS

RADIO MAGNETIC INDICATOR (RMI) The RMI is a remote gyro compass on which radio bearings (both ADF and VOR) are shown. As it is a compass, the heading index is heading compass and it may suffer from deviation, for which a correction must be made to ADF bearings but not VOR bearings. The sharp end of the pointers are referred to as RMI readings or QDM. The opposite or blunt end of the needle will be a QDR.

ensure a 50 nm separation at the VOR? ensure a 5 minute separation at the VOR?

As aircraft B reduces speed to the same speed as aircraft A it is a 'speed of closing' problem. If aircraft B reduces speed to a different speed than aircraft A it is a 'delay' problem. 390 nms

An aircraft, GS 450 Kts, estimates overhead 'Delta' at 0915 Z. ATC requests the aircraft to cross 'Delta' at 0920 Z. To accomplish this the aircraft reduces speed to 390 Kts at time :-

CHAPTER 4 THE SOLAR SYSTEM & TIME The measurement of the passage of time is based upon observations of events occurring at regular intervals. The two repetitive events which most influence life on Earth are the rotation of the Earth on its axis. Causing day and night, and the movement of the Earth in its orbit around the Sun, causing the seasons. THE EARTH’S ORBIT The orbit of a planet around the Sun conforms with Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion which state :-

1.

The orbit of a planet is an ellipse, with the Sun at one of the foci.

2.

The line joining the planet to the Sun, known as the radius vector, sweeps out equal areas in equal in equal intervals of time.

A

Y SYC

SAX

C X

In the above sketch the planet (P) moves anticlockwise in its orbit and is at its closest position to the Sun at position A which is called PERIHELION. At Perihelion the Earth is about 91½ million miles from the Sun and occurs on January 4. At position C the planet is furthest from the Sun and is known as APHELION. At Aphelion the Earth is about 94½ million miles from the Sun and occurs on July 4. The mean distance of the Earth from the Sun is about 93 million miles. According to Kepler’s Law the radius vector sweeps out equal areas in equal intervals of time. If the area SAX equals the area SYC then as the distance AX is greater than the distance CY and the orbital speed of the planet is faster at Perihelion than at Aphelion. The orbital speed of the Earth is variable.

CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 59

The Earth completes one orbit around the Sun in about 365.25 days. The plane of the orbit is called the plane of the Ecliptic, and the N/S axis of the Earth is inclined to this plane at an angle of 66½. The plane of The Ecliptic is at an angle of 23½ º to the Earth’s Equator and this angle is known as the obliquity of the ecliptic. THE SEASONS One effect of the tilt of the Earth’s axis is the annual cycle of seasons. As the Earth moves around the Sun, on or near 23rd of December the North Pole is inclined away from the Sun, which is vertically above Latitude 23½°N. This is known as winter solstice and is midwinter in the Northern Hemisphere and midsummer in the Southern Hemisphere. As the Earth travels around its orbit, being a gyro. Its axis will always point in the same direction relative to space and will reach a point at the summer solstice, on or about 22 nd June, when the Sun is vertically overhead Latitude 23½°N. It is then midsummer in the Northern Hemisphere and midwinter in the Southern Hemisphere. Between these dates the Sun. will be overhead the Equator. These events occur on 21st March which is the spring or vernal equinox, and 23rd September which is the autumn equinox.

MEASUREMENT OF TIME – THE DAY The rotation of the Earth on its axis is used as a basis for the measurement of the length of a day. The length of time taken for the Earth to complete one revolution on its axis can be found by taking the time between two successive transits of a fixed point in space over a particular meridian. Sidereal Day (23 hours 56 minutes 4 seconds) As stars are at immense distances from the Earth, they can be considered to be at infinity and rays of light from stars can be considered parallel regardless of the position of the Earth in its orbit round the Sun. The time interval between two successive transits of a star or a fixed point in space over a meridian is called a SIDEREAL DAY and is constant at 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds.

Apparent Solar Day The time interval between two successive transits of the True Sun over a meridian is an Apparent Solar Day. The Sun and a star are in transit overhead a meridian. After 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds the star is in transit For a second time (a Sidereal Day), rays of light from a star being parallel. Due to the Earth’s orbital speed (approximately 58 000 Kts) it has moved some 1 400 000 nm along its orbit and the Earth has to rotate ‘X’ degrees before the Sun is in transit for a second time. This of course takes time thus an Apparent Solar Day is always longer than a Sidereal Day. An average of 365 Apparent Solar Days is taken and termed a Mean Solar Day which is 24 hours. Mean Solar Day The 24 hour day is based on the Mean Sun. When the Mean Sun is overhead a meridian it is 12:00 Local Mean Time (LMT). Each and every meridian has its own LMT. THE EQUATION OF TIME (E)

The equation of time is the time difference between the apparent solar day and the mean solar day and is of varying duration.

The Siderial Day

Because of the relative proximity of the earth to the sun, attempts to measure the length of the day (one revolution of the earth) are contaminated by the movement of the earth in its orbit relative to the sun. To solve this problem, a fixed point in space is chosen which is so enormously distant that the movement of the earth in its orbit relative to this point is basically zero. This point in space is called the Siderial point or the first point of Aries. The Siderial day then, is defined as two successive transits of the Siderial point at the same meridian. The Siderial day is of constant duration : 23 hours 56 mins 4 seconds. The Earth rotates on its axis from West to East. It is more convenient to imagine the Earth stationary with the Sun rising in the East and setting in the West. At the Greenwich Meridian the sun is rising at 06:00 LMT. At 90ºE the sun is overhead at 12:00 LMT. At 180ºE/W the sun is setting at 18:00 LMT. At 90ºW it is midnight 24:00 LMT on the 5th LD Local Date or 00:00 LMT on the 6 th LD. The Local Date changes at midnight and also at the International Date Line. ARC TO TIME The Earth rotates through 360 in 24 hours. 90 in 6 hours, or 15° per hour, there is a direct relationship between Longitude and LMT. The Conversion of Arc to Time table is available in the Navigation Tables booklet provided in the examination.

SUNRISE & SUNSET The time at which the upper limb of the sun is coincident with the horizon. Corrections have been made for atmospheric refraction.

CIVIL TWILIGHT The time at which the upper limb of the sun is 6 below the horizon. The degree of illumination at the beginning of morning and end of evening twilight (in good conditions and in the absence of other illumination) is such that the brightest stars are just visible, and terrestrial objects can be easily distinguished. The rising and setting tables on pages 74 onwards give the UTC at the Greenwich Meridian. For all places of the same latitude the corresponding phenomena will occur at approximately the same LMT and this will be approximately the UTC tabulated. since UTC = LMT at Greenwich. To obtain the UTC of a phenomenon at a particular position the longitude must be convened into time and applied to the time extracted from the tables. A further correction for Standard Time Factor must be made for LST (Local Standard Time). Sunrise LMT Longitude (Arc to Time) = Sunrise UTC ± Standard Time Factor = Sunrise LST In high latitudes the Sun may be above or below the horizon all day, or civil twilight may last all night. The following symbols indicate the occurrence of these conditions. Sun remains continuous above the horizon Sun remains continuously below the horizon Twilight lasts all night, the Sun is less than 6 below the horizon and it is always lighter than at the beginning or end of morning or evening civil twilight.

CHAPTER 5 Navigational computer VECTOR TRIANGLE (TRIANGLE OF VELOCITIES) Navigation plotting is based around the Vector Triangle which comprises of three vectors.

NOTE All directions are TRUE DIRECTIONS (measured from TRUE NORTH) The length of each Vector is the value for ONE HOUR. (TAS 240 = 240 nm)(W/V 340/30 = 30 nm) The AIR VECTOR (TAS & True Heading) has one arrow and is called the AIR PLOT. The GROUND VECTOR (True Track & Groundspeed) has two arrows and is called the TRACK PLOT. The W/V has three arrows. W/V 340/30 is the direction from which the wind blows at 30 Kts. In the above sketch the Drift angle is 7 Right. The Wind blows from the Air Vector to the Ground Vector. The units cannot be interchanged. The Air Vector is TAS and True Heading only (never TAS & Track) If four of the six values are known, the other two can be calculated. CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 83

NAVIGATIONAL COMPUTER Prior to flight the Heading and GS must be known as well as the fuel required for the flight and the time intervals between enroute points. This can all be found by using simple calculations from the flight computer or Whiz Wheel. There are many wide and varied versions of the Whiz Wheel, but basically they can all do the same thing in the same way. There are two methods of working with the wind side: TAS under the grommet (center) wind down. or GS under the grommet (center) wind up – Jeppesen method. The first method can solve all 3 common triangle of velocity problems, method 2 can only solve 2. Therefore method one will be used in this chapter. In this method the wind is plotted down from the grommet. WIND EXAMPLES Example 1 HDG TAS W/V

330º 150kts 040/25

Find: Track made good The groundspeed Solution: Step1 Plot wind down, then set HDG 330º under index on top. Step2 Read off the drift 10º left, the TRK is therefore 320º Step3 Read off the GS 144 kts Example 2 Required Track 150 TAS 100kt W/V 360/30 Find the Hdg and GS Step 1 CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 84

Place the W/V on the plotting disk: Step 2 Move the circular scale to have the Track under the Index mark. Step 3 The drift is noted to be 7ºR, adjust the disk so that 143º (150º-7) is under the index. Observe that the drift has changed and is now 8ºR. Futher adjust the disk until the difference between the required track and the HDG under the index equals the drift. Note that if this is done correctly HDG 141 is under the index and the drift will be 9ºR. The TRK will equal 150º which is what we require. Now read off the GS at the end of the wind vector 125 kts. Example 3 If TAS is 174kt, Track is 290, the wind velocity is 240/40. Find the Heading and GS. ANSWER: Approx 280, 145kt Example 4 The in-flight type of problem…finding wind You know the following figures, find out the Wind Velocity. HDG TAS TRK GS

138 120kts 146 144kts Step 1 Place the HDG under index and TAS in the middle on the whiz wheel:

CPL NAVIGATION CPL DOC8 Revision 1/1/2001

FLIGHT TRAINING COLLEGE Version 7

Page 85

Step 2 (diagram to the right) Now in your head work out the drift, and its found to be 8 right, so now draw in a straight line along the 8 right drift. The GS is 144kt, draw a line along the 144 line so as to intersect the 8º drift line. Draw a line from the grommet to the intersection of 144kt and 8 drift and you have drawn in the wind vector.

Step 3 (diagram below) Rotate the grid until the wind vector blows straight down. Under the Index mark you can read the direction, in this case its 360, and from the 120kts under the grommet at the beginning of the wind vector to its tail is the strength of the wind, in this case its 30kt. So the answer is 360/30

THE CALCULATOR SIDE OF THE COMPUTER

This side of the computer can do many weird and wonderful calculations, but we are only concerned with the GS/Dist/Time and the Fuel Qty/Fuel Flow/Time problems. In order to make things simple we shall use the whiz wheel in the same manner as you would a electronic calculator, in that we use the following methods for the equations: DISTANCE

TIME

GS Fuel Qtty

Example 2 At a GS of 147kt, how far will you travel in 11minutes?

Example 3 A leg is 25 minutes long, and the fuel flow is 32 lph, what is the fuel burn for this leg of the flight?

ANSWER = 13.3 litres, say 14 litres.. Example 4 If you burn 24 litres per hour, and the duration of the leg is 88minutes, what will be the fuel burn?

CHAPTER 6 LAMBERT'S PLOTTING CHART The chart used for the South African Commercial Pilot's plotting examination is the Lambert's Conformal Conic of Southern Africa. Scale 1:5 000 000 with Standard Parallels of S 20:20 and S 33:40. The Chart Convergency Factor is 0.45 which is the sine of the Parallel of Origin S 27:00. Straight lines drawn on the chart are considered to be GREAT CIRCLES for all practical purposes, which is the prime advantage of the chart, especially when plotting radio bearings. The other main advantage of the chart is that Great Circle tracks can be flown which are shorter than Rhumb Line tracks. This is useful when using Great Circle navigation systems such as INS, and GPS . The main disadvantage of the chart is when Rhumb Line navigation is used (flying constant headings or tracks). This is overcome by splitting the Great Circle track into short segments of 200 to 300 nautical miles or perhaps 5º of Longitude and using the MID MERIDIAN technique. MEASUREMENT OF DISTANCES USE THE VERTICAL LATITUDE SCALE ONLY TO MEASURE DISTANCES IN NAUTICAL MILES 1° OF LATITUDE = 60 NM

1° OF LATITUDE HAS 12 INCREMENTS OF 5 NM EACH

Errors in distance measurement can easily occur. It is suggested that every distance is measured twice as a check. Each VOR has a feather indicating Magnetic North. There is a warning on the chart that these feathers should not be used for plotting purposes due to possible inaccuracies.

MID MERIDIAN TECHNIQUE - GREAT CIRCLE NAVIGATION Draw the straight line GREAT CIRCLE TRACK from A to B. Select the nearest Meridian to the mid point along the track, this is the MID MERIDIAN WHERE THE MEAN GREAT CIRCLE TRACK IS MEASURED.

The usual exam question is -the MEAN MAGNETIC HEADING from A to B is:  Measure the MEAN TRUE TRACK: at the MID MERIDIAN.  Using the TAS and W/V calculate the mean TRUE HEADING.  Apply MAGNETIC VARIATION at the MID MERIDIAN. Other exam questions are :- the INITIAL or FINAL MAGNETIC TRACK or HEADING from A to B is:      

Measure the INITIAL TRUE TRACK: at the nearest MERIDIAN to A. Using the TAS and W/V calculate the INITIAL TRUE HEADING. Apply MAGNETIC VARIATION of the first ISOGONAL along TRACK. Measure the FINAL TRUE TRACK at the last MERIDIAN before B. Using the TAS and W/V calculate the FINAL TRUE HEADING. Apply MAGNETIC VARIATION of the last ISOGONAL along TRACK.

FLIGHT PLAN Plotting starts from a known point of departure and the initial flight conditions are taken from a flight plan. Navigation from the point of departure to destination will consist of fixing the aircraft's position, and if off track, calculating a new heading and ETA for the destination. TRACK PLOT An aircraft is to fly from A to B as per flight plan. Some time later, after maintaining a constant heading a fix is obtained at C.

This is the simple I in 60 rule application that was covered in Navigation General Track Error  __________ = 60

Distance Off 9 run _______________ Distance Run 108 nm

Track Error 5 Alter Heading 5 Right to parallel Track

Track Error  ___________ = 60

Distance Off 9 nm ________________ Distance To Go 135 nm

 = 4 Alter Heading a further 4 Right to B

The procedure is effective and accurate for short range navigation if the angles are small and no alteration of heading has been made between A and C. To make life easier and no calculation required try the following :TMG

The Track Error is actually Drift Error when the forecast W/V is in error which is of course usual. The alteration of heading is made without knowledge of the actual W/V. If the angles are large then the actual W/V must be found and used to alter heading for B.

DRIFT During the 1939 - 1945 war and for some years thereafter most aircraft were equipped with drift sights. They were optical devices that protruded through the side of the aircraft and had a grid that could be aligned with objects on the ground tracking below the aircraft. An accurate drift angle could be measured. Although drifts sights are obsolete, drift may be given in an exam question. 1315 1330 1335

CP The drift is applied to the Heading to give a Track Made Good and is used as a position line to give a Fix at 1335. Note that the drift position line at 1330 is not transferred but extended.

TRANSFER OF POSITION LINES A position line is usually a bearing of the aircraft from a radio facility. If the radio station were moved along a track parallel to the aircraft's track and at the same groundspeed. the bearing of the aircraft from the radio station would remain constant

QTE 340. Track 090. Groundspeed 240 kts.

The aircraft at position A at 0900 Z obtains a QTE of 340 from VDF station X. At 0912 the aircraft will have flown 48 nm along track to position B. If the VDF station is imagined to travel from X to Y at the same speed as the aircraft, then XY is equal and parallel to AB and the line joining Y to B will be an imaginary position line parallel to AX. The distance AB or XY is known as the run. The line BY drawn through the aircraft's position at 0912 is known as a transferred position line and has two arrows and no time. In practice 48 nm is measured forward from where the 0900 position line cuts the track and the position line redrawn through this point.

CONSTANT SPEED (RAS) CLIMB This is the normal climb technique used by commercial aircraft. Navigation wise the most important parameter required for a climb to cruising altitude is the mean climb TAS. This will occur at the mid-point of the climb in TIME and not ALTITUDE. The mid-point of the climb occurs at approximately two-thirds of the climb for both piston and turbine aircraft. Example 1. Climbing from Sea Level to FL 240 at RAS 175 kts and a mean rate of climb of 800 feet per minute. Temperature is ISA + 10C 24 000 feet x 2/3 = ISA at Sea Level 16000ft x 2C/1000 ISA at FL 160 ISA + 10 OAT By computer

THE DESCENT A CONSTANT RATE OF DESCENT is normally used. The temperature and W/V at the mid altitude of the descent are used to calculate TAS and Groundspeed. Example: An aircraft cruising at FL 370 at GS 495 obtains a fix at 1000 Z which gives a distance of 230 nm to go to destination. Descent details:

Rate of Descent 2000 feet per minute Mean Descent GS 360 kts

Plan a descent to arrive overhead the destination at FL 90. The Navigation Log is useful for descent calculations.

AVERAGE WIND COMPONENTS  The average WC is the difference between the average TAS and the average GS.  The average TAS is calculated by the Total Air Nautical Miles flown divided by the Total Time.  The average GS is calculated by the Total Ground Nautical Miles flown divided by the Total Time.

Question 66 If an aeroplane, in zero wind conditions, flies a heading of 040(T) for one hour, and then flies the reciprocal heading 220(T) for one hour at the same TAS it will return at its point of departure. This question involves a strong wind, but with an Air Plot the Air Position will be overhead GEORGE at 1800 Z. The W/V is calculated by the multiple drift method. Heading 040 (T) Drift 12 Right W/V 333/40 kts

Heading 220 (T) Drift 10 Left

The aeroplane will be 2 hours of the W/V 333/40 DOWNWIND from GEORGE. That is on a bearing of 153 (T) at a distance of 80 nm from GEORGE. Track to GEORGE 333 (T)
