SUMMARY OF STEPS NECESSARY TO SOLVE FOR THE WIND ARE:
Set the TAS over the TAS index.
Set the TRACK over the TC index.
Determine and draw Headwind/Tailwind component.
Rotate Intersection to 12 o'clock.
Read Wind Direction.
Read Wind Velocity.
Verify the Estimate.
Recall in chapter 2 the information provided by the BDHI (Figure 4.6-11). A majority of an
aircrew's navigation information will come from this instrument and will be the only type of
electronic navigation available to the student aviator during the majority of training. It is
imperative that the aircrew is able to build a picture, or an awareness, of where they are in
flight using this instrument. In this course, only information provided by the #2 needle
(thicker/double needle) will be covered. This will primarily be TACAN navigation.
