In Flight Winds
Assignment Sheet No. 4.6.1A
The purpose of this assignment sheet is to aid the student in determining wind direction
and velocity (the wind vector), given the True Heading and True Airspeed (the air vector),
Track and Ground Speed (the ground vector).
LESSON TOPIC LEARNING OBJECTIVES
