Airienteering with 13MIKE

by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller

AirLeg 109

1) At “6.5” DME from OAK VOR, press “P” to pause the simulation

Record your:

CDI needle position to OAK VOR_____________(45 pts)

Heading________________________________(45 pts)

Altitude_________________________________(35 pts)

DME from SAU VOR_______________________(20 pts)

Radial from SFO VOR______________________(15 pts)

Name of body of water you just passed

            __________________________________(5 pts)

Variation line you're close to__________________(5 pts)

2) Press “P” to continue the simulation

“Victor airways between VORs shown on low altitude enroute charts are marked at either end with the radial out of that VOR. These radials are not always exact reciprocals of each other, especially on east west tracks for two reasons: I. great circles (which the airways are) cross the north-south meridians of longitude at different angles, and 2. magnetic variation changes slightly across the country. This affects the calculation of the magnetic course from the true course.”

3) Turn to a heading of “250

4) Descend to “2000” feet

5) Which part in the “Federal Aviation Regulations” (FARs) deals with airmen medical requirements?

If your answer is “Part 67”, go to AirLeg 65

If your answer is “Part 141”, go to AirLeg 38

If your answer is “Part 92”, go to AirLeg 80
