You are planning XC to Devils Lake. You will be cruising at 6000 feet with 75% best power. What will be your ground speed and true heading?
1.) Find your Winds
GFK 9900 1519+04 1629-01
2.) Find your True Course
3.) Find your True Airspeed
4.) Ground Speed reads under grommet, WCA reads under wind mark
5.) 260 degrees and 122 kts
1.) Set rate under ground speed (122kts)
2.) Find Distance on outer scale (70kts)
3.) Time (on inner scales) reads under distance (A scale).
1.) Set rate to gallons per hour (from POH – 11.4)
2.) Add day VFR to time enroute
3.) Time reads on inner scale, gallons required reads above.
1.)How far do you have to climb?
2.) Use your E6B to divide the feet you need to climb by your rate of climb
3.) Put rate under groundspeed (122kts)
4.) Find 10.3 minutes on minute scale and read distance above.
1.) On your way back to Grand Forks, your GPS fails (?!), due to your excellent pilotage skills and planning, you still know your groundspeed and True course, which are 120 kts and 090 respectively. You do, however, have an obsession with finding your winds. While your instructor flies, you pull out your E6B an decide to compute your winds…..
While computing your winds, you have completely lost track of your ground speed and track. So, you simply use the winds you have just computed….
