6.  DRIFT CORRECTION ANGLE - the angle between the heading of an aircraft and the
desired course (slang: "crab angle").
For purposes of ATM navigation, a course can be thought of as a TACAN radial, a straight line
between two fixes (either during point-to-point navigation, or the course to fly for compliance
with a "present position direct" clearance), an arc, or a final approach course during a GCA
approach.
In summary, it is the student's responsibility to request headings, which will bracket the drift
correction angle in order to determine a drift correction heading which will cause the aircraft to
track on the desired course.
Exception: in the T-2C (not in the 2F101), once established on an arc, the student may request
the IP to "maintain the arc". In the 2F101, the student will navigate throughout all arcs.

Inbound and outbound radial tracking procedures are essentially the same. The difference is
when tracking outbound, the course is the same as the radial, and when tracking inbound, the
