Speed (A-speed index) Distance (A) / Time (B)
(underneath the distance) where time is lt10
minutes We treat the B scale as seconds and the
C scale as Minutes. Instead of using the Speed
Index we use a special point on the B scale
found at 36 (SEC.) Example Fly 1 mile in 45
seconds. Set 1 (A scale) over 45 ( B scale) and
locate the SEC points (36 on B scale).
Groundspeed above is 80 on the A scale.
• 1 mile in 120 seconds (or 200 Minutes)
• 5 miles in 45 seconds
• 3 miles in 2 minutes 30 seconds
• 20. 1 mile in 8 seconds
• 21. 7.5 miles in 4 minutes and 30 seconds

Quick mental math on AirspeedAre we there yet?
How long?
If the groundspeed is 150 knots, multiply the
distance by four and drop the last zero 20
miles4 80. It will take eight minutes at
150. For 60, multiply the miles by 1 since
your are traveling at 1 mile per minute. For
90, divide miles by 1.5 since you are going 1.5
miles each minute. For 100, multiply by six for
120, minus the zero for 12 minutes. For 120,
divide by two since you are traveling at 2 miles
per minute. For 150, divide by 2.5 since you are
traveling at 2.5 miles per minute. For 180, just
divide by three since you are traveling at 3
miles per minute. Etc, etc, etc.

THE FLIGHT COMPUTER AIRSPEED
WHAT YOU SEE (INDICATED AIRSPEED) IS NOT EXACTLY
TRUE
TRUE AIRSPEED (TAS) - Calibrated airspeed must be
corrected for altitude and the outside air
temperature. (temperature pressure impact
airspeed indicator)
TAS IS HOW FAST YOU ARE MOVING THRU THE AIR NOT
HOW FAST YOU ARE MOVING OVER THE GROUND (need
wind info for GS)

• Determining Wind Direction and Speed using the
E6B when enroute.
• Basically you work the wind problem backwards on
the E6B.
• Put your groundspeed under the grommet
• On the True Airspeed Arc, put a dot to reflect
right or left wind correction angle you are
holding.
• Rotate the ring so that your mark is on the
centerline
• Read the wind direction under the E6B True Index
• Read the wind speed as the distance up from the

120, and your ground speed is 130. Determine Wind
Direction and speed. Slide 55 to confirm your
Wind Direction 180, Wind Speed 16

You only need 2 more pieces of the puzzle to plot
and compute full navigation problems (Deviation
and Variation)
WHAT AND WHERE DO YOU FIND DEVIATION?
Corrections for instrument errors printed (a) in
the POH (b) on the Magnetic Compass
N6585J Deviation
WHAT IS AND WHERE DO YOU FIND VARIATION?
Variation between TRUE and MAGNETIC North located
on Sectional Charts as dashed vertical lines (E
W)
ADD () if W SUB (-) if E

• PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER. ITS ON YOUR E6B
• TAS, you must know the Winds Aloft , outside air
temperature and velocity at altitude
• WCA is the offset to the TC due to the winds
aloft
• GS is the correction of TAS for the winds aloft
• TH is the TC correction of WCA (TH TC /- WCA)
• MH is the TH correction of Variation (MH TH /-
VAR)
• CH is the MH correction of Deviation (CH MH /-
DEV)

• PRACTICE EXERCISE 2
• Mark and measure Checkpoints for each leg. It is
a visual marker of your choice to assist you to
recognize if you are on course. It should be a
point easy to recognize. Give careful
consideration if night checkpoints will differ
at night.
• 1. Mark your CHECKPOINTS for each let of the
flight.
• Record the distances on each leg of the flight.
• We will discuss putting your True Course and
Distance for each leg on a Navigation Log on the
next class.
