Figure 1-27 Radio Magnetic Indicator (RMI)
Here is a technique which will aid in orienting yourself using the RMI:
1. Place an imaginary aircraft on the tail of the VOR/TACAN needle with its nose pointed to
the top of the instrument. Do this when you look at the tail of the VOR/TACAN needle to
determine your radial (Figure 1-28).
Imagine the VOR or TACAN station being at the center of the RMI.
