CHAPTER ONE
INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES WORKBOOK
There are two methods which can be used to fly to a TACAN or VOR station. For the first
method, simply turn the aircraft to place the head of the needle under the heading index of the
RMI and "follow" it to the station. This is known as homing. The one disadvantage to this
method is that if a crosswind exists, the aircraft will fly a curved path to the station (Figure 1-24).
The severity of the curve increases as distance from the station or crosswind component
increases.
Homing should only be used when close to the station.
