Given: SHA VOR N5243.3 W00853.1, CON VOR N5354.8 W00849.1, Aircraft position N5330 W00800 Which of the following lists two radials that are applicable to the aircraft position? 6112549.gif A SHA 042° CON 138° B SHA 033° CON 130° C SHA 221° CON 318° D SHA 213° CON 310° Explanation: Plot position 53º30‟N 008º00‟W and draw lines from SHA and CON through that position. Put the protractor over SHA and align it with magnetic North (the 052ºM and 115ºM radials on the chart will help with this alignment) and measure the radial through the position (042ºM). Put the protractor over CON and align it with magnetic North (the 113ºM radial on the chart will help with this alignment) and measure the radial through the position (138ºM). Question 354: Given: SHA VOR N5243.3 W00853.1, CON VOR N5354.8 W00849.1. Aircraft position N5320 W00950 Which of the following lists two radials that are applicable to the aircraft position? 6112549.gif A SHA 325° CON 235° B SHA 317° CON 226° C SHA 145° CON 055° D SHA 137° CON 046° Explanation: Plot 53º20‟N 009º50‟W, draw line from CON through that position and draw line from SHA through that position. Centre protractor on CON and align with magnetic north (use airway B1 113ºM radial); note radial (235ºM). Centre protractor on SHA and align with magnetic north (use airway G1 115ºM radial); note radial (325ºM). Question 355: Given: SHA VOR (N5243.3 W00853.1) DME 50 NM, CRK VOR (N5150.4 W00829.7) DME 41 NM, Aircraft heading 270°(M), Both DME distances increasing. What is the aircraft position? 6112549.gif A N5200 W00935 B N5215 W00745 C N5235 W00750 D N5215 W00940 Explanation: With compasses and using the latitude scale draw arcs of 50NM from SHA and 41NM from CRK. If the aircraft is heading West and the ranges are increasing it must be at the westerly intersection of these two arcs: 52º00‟N 009º35‟W.

Question 356: Given: SHA VOR (N5243.3 W00853.1) DME 41 NM, CRK VOR (N5150.4 W00829.7) DME 30 NM, Aircraft heading 270°(M), Both DME distances decreasing. What is the aircraft position? 6112549.gif A N5215 W00805 B N5205 W00915 C N5225 W00810 D N5215 W00915 Explanation: With compasses and using the latitude scale draw arcs of 41NM from SHA and 30NM from CRK. If the aircraft is heading West and the ranges are decreasing it must be at the easterly intersection of these two arcs: 52º15‟N 008º05‟W. At the Easterly intersection which CAN be plotted on the chart and at the given coordinates, on a heading of 270 the DME distances would be decreasing (as the aircraft is flying into the plotted circles). Question 357: Given: CRN VOR (N5318.1 W00856.5) DME 18 NM, SHA VOR (N5243.3 W00853.1) DME 30 NM, Aircraft heading 270°(M), Both DME distances decreasing. What is the aircraft position? 6112549.gif A N5310 W00830 B N5355 W00825 C N5252 W00923 D N5307 W00923 Explanation: With compasses and using latitude scale for distance arc off 18nm from CRN. With compasses and using latitude scale for distance arc off 30nm from SHA. They intersect at two points but, since the aircraft is on a westerly heading and the ranges are decreasing, the aircraft must be at the easterly intersection. Question 358: Given: CRN VOR (N5318.1 W00856.5) DME 34 NM, SHA VOR (N5243.3 W00853.1) DME 26 NM, Aircraft heading 090°(M), Both DME distances increasing. What is the aircraft position?
