Whiting North is shown in Figure 4.7-9.

FLIGHT PLANNING EXAMPLE
As stated earlier, only the enroute section will be emphasized in this course. In
the following example, a flight will be planned from Tyndall AFB (30 04.2' N
085 34.6' W) to Marianna Municipal (30 50.1' N 085 11.0' W) with an
intermediate turn point over Blountstown Airfield (30 27.0'N 085 02.0' W). The
preflight winds are 300/20, TAS=120kts, fuel flow=240pph and total starting fuel
is 815 pounds. Takeoff time is 1400 Zulu.
STEP 1: MEASURE TRUE COURSES AND DISTANCES.
The first step in preflight planning is to measure the courses and the distances
utilizing the procedures in chapter two. Doing this, a True Course to Blountstown
from Tyndall is 051T and from Blountstown to Marianna is 342T. Figure 4.7-10
depicts a generalization of this route.
