    What is the correct procedure to find your position using two VOR stations?

    • A.

      Fly directly towards the first VOR, then tune to the second VOR.

    • B.

      Set the OBS to a radial from the first VOR, then intercept and fly along it. Repeat for the second VOR. Your position is where the radials intersect.

    • C.

      Set both OBS to the same radial and fly until both needles center.

    • D.

      Adjust your heading towards the first VOR until both needles center with the second VOR.

    Correct Answer
    B. Set the OBS to a radial from the first VOR, then intercept and fly along it. Repeat for the second VOR. Your position is where the radials intersect.
    Explanation
    Set the OBS (Omni Bearing Selector) to a radial from the first VOR station. This ensures that your VOR receiver is aligned with a specific direction relative to the VOR station. Intercept and fly along this radial, maintaining the needle centered on the VOR display. Then, tune the second VOR receiver to the frequency of the second VOR station and set its OBS to a different radial. Intercept and fly along this second radial, again keeping the needle centered. Your position is where the two radials intersect. This technique is known as VOR triangulation and provides an accurate method of determining your position by utilizing the intersecting radials from two VOR stations.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. VHF radio waves are less susceptible to interference than low-frequency radio waves.
    Explanation
    VHF radio waves are less susceptible to interference than low-frequency radio waves. This is because VHF waves have a higher frequency, which allows them to carry more information and be less affected by external factors. Low-frequency radio waves, on the other hand, are more prone to interference from natural and man-made sources such as atmospheric conditions, electrical equipment, and other radio signals. Therefore, using VHF frequencies for VOR navigation provides a more reliable and accurate signal, ensuring better navigation capabilities.

      Relative Bearing

    • B.

      Magnetic Heading

    • C.

      Magnetic Bearing

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Magnetic Bearing
    Explanation
    The magnetic bearing is the sum of the magnetic heading and the relative bearing. The magnetic heading refers to the direction in which an aircraft or vessel is pointing, measured in relation to magnetic north. The relative bearing, on the other hand, is the angle between the heading of the aircraft or vessel and a target or reference point. Therefore, the magnetic bearing is the combined angle between the heading and the relative bearing, providing the overall direction to the target or reference point in relation to magnetic north.

    • A.

      6° left

    • B.

      3° right

    • C.

      5° right

    • D.

      6° right

    Correct Answer
    D. 6° right
    Explanation
    If the CDI (Course Deviation Indicator) is deflected 3 dots to the right of the VOR (VHF Omnidirectional Range) indicator and the heading indicator are in general agreement, it means that the aircraft is deviating to the right of the desired course. The CDI shows the deviation from the selected VOR radial or course, with each dot representing a certain degree of deviation. Since the CDI is deflected to the right, it indicates that the aircraft is to the right of the desired course. Therefore, the correct answer is 6° right.
