INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
LINES OF POSITION
One definition of a fix is the intersection of two lines of position (LOP). An aircraft
equipped with two navigation sources (such as the T-34) can obtain two lines of position from
different navaids. The intersection of these lines will provide a fix. Although this will not be
your primary means of navigation, it is a backup and should be used when primary systems
have been degraded.
SUMMARY
TACAN's supply all the information you need to identify your geographic position. They
provide magnetic bearing and distance from the selected TACAN station. VOR's are quite
similar to TACANs in that magnetic bearing is provided; however, VORs are not equipped
with DME. Each of these navigation facilities generate radials which are numbered clockwise
from 001 to 360" and any aircraft tuned in to a particular navaid will find itself on one of
these radials.
