CHAPTER FIVE
511.
COMPENSATING FOR WIND
For T-6A Navigation this is done prior to takeoff by winding the chart first as discussed at the
beginning of the chapter. In order to accomplish this in flight, you must have already come up
with a total wind direction &
Calculate crab just as you did in instrument navigation. At 180 knots, crab 2º for each 5 knots of
always in 2º increments. The value of 2° for every 5 knots comes from the following formula.

Example
Aircraft is on a base heading of 072º, base airspeed is 175 KIAS for 180 KTAS. At time 4+30
the aircraft passes 1/2 NM right of a checkpoint which you preflighted/updated to be on course at
time 4+05. Estimate the wind and the appropriate compensations.
Using the 6 minute rule: 1/2 NM X 10
= 5 knots left crosswind

Total wind = 12 knots + (1/2 X 5 knots) = 15 knots total wind
