Review of the ONav FTI
Question 9 -- 188.8.131.52.2.1
How do you correct if you see checkpoint E in the distance?
ANSWER: Fly directly to point E.
Question 10 -- 184.108.40.206.2.1
If you cannot see point E, what procedures would be used
to correct back to course?
ANSWER: Turn 10 degrees right for two minutes, then makeup
time when you regain the correct track.
D. Effects of being off course
Sg 4, fr 10
Inside of turn <90 degrees--timing not significantly
Fig 7: Effects of
Off-Course Turns on
Inside of turn >90 degrees--early at next checkpoint
Outside of any turn--late at next checkpoint
Funneling: Follow linear landmark (e.g. road, river,
railroad, power lines, etc.) to checkpoint; stay within route
Coast in (spoke method)
Draw course lines every 10 degrees of heading from
beach to first inland checkpoint
Use 10% of distance to coast for width of spokes
EXAMPLE: If coasting in from 200 miles off shore,
draw spokes 20 nm either side of true course line
