Airienteering with 13MIKE

by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller

AirLeg 81

1) When “23.0” DME from SFO VOR, turn to a heading of “030

“At this distance, every radial is separated by about 1/3 of a nautical mile. At 60 miles from a VOR station, one radial is separated from its neighbor by 1 nautical mile. So for a quick calculation, just take the DME you're on approximately, and divide it by 60. The result will be the number of miles between radials at that distance.”

2) Choose the proper solution from the Riddle-Me-Dee section at the end of this scenario, and go to the AirLeg indicated.

Runs all day and never walks,

Often murmurs, never talks;

It has a bed and never sleeps;

It has a mouth and never eats.
