### To get a FROM flag in view on the horizontal situation indicator when the magnetic bearing to the very-high frequency omnirange station is 75 degrees, the selected course should be manually set to?

• A.

2.5 degrees

• B.

210 degrees

• C.

90 degrees

• D.

000 degrees

B. 210 degrees
Explanation
To get a FROM flag in view on the horizontal situation indicator when the magnetic bearing to the very-high frequency omnirange station is 75 degrees, the selected course should be manually set to 210 degrees. This is because the FROM flag indicates that the aircraft is flying away from the station, and to achieve this, the selected course should be set 180 degrees opposite to the magnetic bearing of the station. Therefore, setting the course to 210 degrees would ensure that the aircraft is flying away from the station and the FROM flag is displayed.

• A.

45 degrees

• B.

90 degrees

• C.

15 degrees

• D.

Explanation
When the main reference burst occurs at the minimum amplitude of the 15-Hz variable signal in tactical air navigation, it indicates that the aircraft is directly facing the station. In this position, the azimuth to the station is 90 degrees.

Rate this question:

• 27.

### If the horizontal situation indicator displays a magnetic heading of 45 degrees and a magnetic bearing of 5 degrees to the tactical air navigation station, then the relative bearing is?

• A.

320 degrees

• B.

270 degrees

• C.

160 degrees

• D.

220 degrees

A. 320 degrees
Explanation
The relative bearing is the angle between the aircraft's heading and the direction of the target. In this case, the aircraft's magnetic heading is 45 degrees and the magnetic bearing to the TACAN station is 5 degrees. To find the relative bearing, we subtract the magnetic bearing from the magnetic heading: 45 degrees - 5 degrees = 40 degrees. However, since the relative bearing is always measured clockwise from the aircraft's nose, we subtract the result from 360 degrees: 360 degrees - 40 degrees = 320 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is 320 degrees.

Rate this question:

• 28.

### In the tactical air navigation mode, each dot on the horizontal situation indicator represnts an error from the selected course of

• A.

0.5 degrees

• B.

5 degrees

• C.

2.5 degrees

• D.

10 degrees

B. 5 degrees
Explanation
In the tactical air navigation mode, each dot on the horizontal situation indicator represents an error from the selected course of 5 degrees. This means that if the aircraft deviates from the planned course by one dot on the indicator, it is off track by 5 degrees. The larger the deviation, the further the aircraft is from its intended path. Therefore, a deviation of 5 degrees indicates a significant error in navigation.
