Figure 5. The scale of NM per block may be increased as necessary. For example, for a distance
of 150 NM, each square may represent 20 NM. (Figure 5)

Pencil/Eyeball Method
Utilizing the same principles we learned on the CR-2, we can work point-to-point navigation
by the pencil/eyeball method. The big drawback to the CR-2 method is that it consumes too
much time. The pencil method, though not as accurate, is much quicker and shall be used on
your training flights here in VT-10.
In working this method, we equate the center of the RMI to the TACAN station. The
compass card then becomes the surrounding airspace. The tail of your #2 needle corresponds to
