Range (NM) = 1.25 x (√height station + √FL(ft))
FL(ft) = (Range(ft) / 1.25 - √height)^2
WCA = Wind Diff Angle x Wind Speed / TAS
RMI: RB = QDM(ADF pointer) - MH
negative value + 360
Distance to DME = Altitude ft / 6000 (6000ft = 1 NM above DME)
Auf NDB zu -> relative bearing = 0°
Von NDB weg -> relative bearing = 180°
Slant range = (time (ms) - 50) / 12,36
DMEdist ² = (dist_hor) ^ 2 + height ^ 2
Wave length = speed of light (300000km/s) / frequency (Hz)
Rate of Descent = GS x 5
(every 10kt in GS = 50ft/min)
1 : 60 Regel: 60 NM -> 1° = 1NM
100 NM -> 1.5 NM; 5NM in 100 NM = 3°
RMI bearing (compass) -> VAR/DEV -> true bearing
Max Radar Range
Range = c / (2 x PRF) OR PRF = c / (2 * Range)
c = 3 x 10^8 m/s for m or km
c = 162.000 NM/s for NM
