MAE 142 Homework Set #2 (Winter 2011) Problem 1 Find the constant course heading that is needed to plan a two- hour airplane trip from Washington Dulles airport (IAD) to Orlando Florida airport (MCO). Assume a constant 30 nmi/hr wind that is moving in a direction pointed 60 deg east of true north. Problem 2 The gravity vector has a magnitude 'g' and points in the 'down' direction of a NED local frame. Use the Euler angle formulation of the L2B transformation matrix to find an expression for the
