    31-40 (Refer to Figure 22.) What is the estimated en route from Mercer Country Regional Airport (area 3) to Minot International (area 1)? The wind is from 330° at 25 knots and the true airspeed is 100 knots. Add 3-1/2 minutes for departure and climb-0. (10 points - please show your computation/solution)
    • A. 

      44 minutes

    • B. 

      52 minutes

    • C. 

      48 minutes

    • D. 

      Solution: 1. Measure the distance between Mercer County Regional Airport and Minot International (59NM) 2. Determine the True Course (TC) (012°) 3. Determine the groundspeed using your flight computer. a. Enter the wind direction and speed (330° True at 25 Kts.) b. Enter the TC (012°) c. Enter the True Air Speed (TAS) (100 Kts.) d. GS = 80 Kts 4. Determine the time enroute using your flight computer (59 NM at 80 NM/hr. = 44 min. 15 sec.) 5. Add departure and climb-out time (3 min. 30 sec. + 44 min. 15 sec. = 47 min. 45 sec.) This is rounded to 48 min.
