“Do keep in mind that when you are flying a track from one point to another, such as this Coliseum, that the straight line track from your Terminal Area chart must be adjusted to handle the complications of actual winds you are flying. For instance, if that anticipated course is 170 degrees, but winds are 230 at 30 knots, then you might want to crab to the right about 10 degrees in order to compensate for the winds trying to blow you left of your desired track to the Coliseum. This becomes very important when flying by way of pilotage and dead reckoning, relying upon landmarks along your route.”

1) When over the “COLISEUM”, press “P” to pause the simulation

“You know, Louis Bleriot succeeded in his flight across the English Channel in 1909, but he might have failed had not a shower of rain cooled his overheating 25 horsepower Anzani engine enroute. Within two days after his achievement, Bleriot received orders for more than 100 similar aircraft!”

3) Turn direct to LAX VOR

4) When was Charles A. Lindbergh's historic flight across the Atlantic?
