On a navigational exercise, a visual position fix gives your location as 4nm right of track when you have travelled 40nm from your point of departure. You have a further 20nm to your destination. What alteration of heading should you make to fly direct to your destination aerodrome?
An aircraft plans to fly a direct track from Y to Z, a total distance of 45nm. 25nm along the track from Y to Z, a visual position fix puts the aircraft 3nm left of track. What change of heading is required for the aircraft to arrive overhead Z?
You may assume there is nil wind for this question.
A pilot on a cross-country flight is approaching a heavy rain shower. They decide to divert 60° to the right to avoid the weather. The pilot holds this new heading for 4 minutes before flying parallel to their original planned track for 4 minutes. Once they have passed the weather, the pilot turns 60° to the left and holds this heading for 4 minutes before returning to their original planned track. How many minutes should the pilot now add to their original ETA?
The 1-in-60 rule says that:
While on a navigational flight from A to B, the air traffic control unit you are in contact with advises you of an ongoing police operation along your planned track. They request that you divert around that section of your track. To achieve this, you elect to turn 60° to the left and fly this new heading for 3 minutes. After the 3 minutes, you turn 120° to the right and hold this new heading for a further 3 minutes. You then turn left onto your original heading. How many minutes should you add to your original destination ETA to account for this diversion?
You may assume nil wind for this scenario.
