The 60-to-1 Rule is a technique to establish predictable pitch changes and lead points for
intercepting courses or arcs.
The information and techniques within this appendix should not be viewed as required

You are no doubt familiar with the concept that as your distance from a NAVAID increases, the
spacing between given radials also increase. But just how much does radial spacing increase as
you move from the station? To answer this question, consider the following. At a distance of 60
NM from the station, there is 1 mile between each radial. As you get closer to the station, the
radials are closer together. (For example at 30 NM from the station, there is 1/2 mile between
mile (Figure C-1.) In general, 60 divided by distance from the station equals the number of
