CHAPTER FOUR
T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
Remember: TAIL - RADIAL - WIND (Direction FROM)!
Turn toward the desired radial. This will be a turn into the wind. The exact number of degrees
to alter heading will depend on the rate and magnitude of drift as well as your distance from the
station. However, you must at least turn to a heading that will put you on the other side of the
desired radial. In Figure 4-2, this would be at least 082 degrees.
Figure 4-3 shows the aircraft in the process of re-intercepting the 263 radial.

NOTE
We have altered the heading to the left (toward the desired radial)
by about 20. This places the head of the bearing pointer in a
position to fall and the tail to rise to 263 (the radial you wish to
fly inbound on).
As the head of the bearing pointer falls to the desired course (tail rises to desired course if
proceeding outbound) and the CDI centers, turn back toward the desired course leaving in a drift
correction of approximately 5 (Figure 4-4).
