Application in Life:

A pilot is flying her Cessna aircraft at a speed of 210 km/h due north from Long Island MacArthur Airport, New York to Sikorsky Memorial Airport, Connecticut. There is a strong 65 km/h wind blowing from west to east. The airstrip upon which she has been given clearance to land is orientated in a north south direction.

1. Make a scale of say 10units on your grid equates to 100km/h.

2. Drawvectorstorepresentheraircraftandthecrosswind.

1. Determinetheresultantdirectionandspeedofheraircraft.
2. Give the direction θ0 in which she should point her aircraft nose in order to
3. remain on course to her destination (there may be potential for confusion here as navigation systems in aircraft use magnetic north as 00, while in our calculation here we use (east) the positive X- axis as 00. However, all angles are measured in a counterclockwise direction.).
4. Draw this vector on your grid.
5. Record a screenshot or pic of your simulation grid for your lab report.
6. Considering, to land her aircraft ,she must slowdown/decrease her speed,
7. How will this affect her ability to stay on course for the north-south aligned runway? What corrective action can she take to compensate and ensure she remains on course as she slows down to land?
