P Some websites have been given for reference at the end of the chapter and the glossary. Because a pilot may cross several time zones during a flight, a standard time system has been adopted. All of the time zones around the world are based on this reference. To convert to this time, a pilot should do the following: Measurement of Direction By using the meridians, direction from one point to another can be measured in degrees, in a clockwise direction from true north.
To indicate a course to be followed in flight, draw a line on the chart from the point of departure to the destination and measure the angle which this line forms with a meridian. Direction is expressed in degrees, as shown by the compass rose in figure Because meridians converge toward the poles, course measurement should be taken at a meridian near the midpoint of the course rather than at the point of departure.
Are all parallels and meridians meet at angles other than 90 degrees
The course measured on the chart is known as the true course. This is the direction measured by reference to a meridian or true north. It is the direction of intended flight as measured in degrees clockwise from true north.
The true heading is the direction in which the nose of the airplane points during a flight when measured in degrees clockwise from true north. Usually, it is necessary to head the airplane in a direction slightly different from the true course to offset the effect of wind.
Consequently, numerical value of the true heading may not correspond with that of the true course. This will be discussed more fully in subsequent sections in this chapter. For the purpose of this discussion, assume a no-wind condition exists under which heading and course would coincide.
To use the compass accurately, however, corrections must be made for magnetic variation and compass deviation. Variation Variation is the angle between true north and magnetic north. It is expressed as east variation or west variation depending upon whether magnetic north MN is to the east or west of true north TNrespectively. If the Earth were uniformly magnetized, the compass needle would point toward the magnetic pole, in which case the variation between true north as shown by the geographical meridians and magnetic north as shown by the magnetic meridians could be measured at any intersection of the meridians.
Actually, the Earth is not uniformly magnetized.
In the United States the needle usually points in the general direction of the magnetic pole, but it may vary in certain geographical localities by many degrees. Consequently, the exact amount of variation at thousands of selected locations in the United States has been carefully determined. The amount and the direction of variation, which change slightly from time to time, are shown on most aeronautical charts as broken magenta lines, called isogonic lines, which connects points of equal magnetic variation.
The line connecting points at which there is no variation between true north and magnetic north is the agonic line. An isogonic chart is shown in figure Minor bends and turns in the isogonic and agonic lines are caused by unusual geological conditions affecting magnetic forces in these areas. Magnetic meridians are in black, geographic meridians and parallels are in blue. Variation is the angle between a magnetic and geographic meridian.
On the west coast of the United States, the compass needle points to the east of true north; on the east coast, the compass needle points to the west of true north. Zero degree variation exists on the agonic line which runs roughly through Lake Michigan, the Appalachian Mountains, and off the coast of Florida, where magnetic north and true north coincide. This conversion is made by adding or subtracting the variation which is indicated by the nearest isogonic line on the chart.
The true heading, when corrected for variation, is known as magnetic heading. The black lines are isogonic lines which connect geographic points with identical magnetic variation.
Remember, to convert true course or heading to magnetic course or heading, note the variation shown by the nearest isogonic line. If variation is west, add; if east, subtract. To determine compass heading, a correction for deviation must be made. Because of magnetic influences within the airplane such as electrical circuits, radio, lights, tools, engine, magnetized metal parts, etc.
