INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES WORKBOOK
CHAPTER ONE
Figure 1-25 Tracking
The second method is called tracking. Tracking consists of maintaining a straight path or course
over the ground. In order to do this, the aircraft must turn slightly into the wind. When using
this method, the needle will not normally be under the heading index but slightly to one side
(Figure 1-25).
When the compass card is known or suspected to be malfunctioning, the VOR and TACAN
needles must be considered unreliable until verified by other means. In this situation, the VOR
and TACAN needles will not point toward the VOR or TACAN facility (relative bearing) but
may still indicate proper magnetic bearing information. In other words, these needles provide
bearing information in relation to the compass card, not the aircraft heading.
