Climb & Descent
Gradient

                                                          

Ground Speed     [knots]   [km/h]   [sm/h]       
Rate of Climb or Descent     [ft/min]   [m/min]   [m/sec]       
Climb or Descent Gradient     [ft/Nm]   [m/km]   [ft/km]       
Climb or Descent Angle   [ o ]    
Climb or Descent Grade   [%    

      Enter any two fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result.  

 

Rate of Turn
Bank Angle
Load Factor

                                                        

 Main Variables
Ground Speed     [knots]   [km/h]   [sm/h]       
Time for 360o Turn     [min]   [sec]         
Bank Angle     [o           
Load Factor (L/W)      

 Correlated Variables
Radius of Turn       [Nm]   [km]   [sm]  
Vertical Lift to Weight Ratio (LV/W)          
Horizontal Lift to Weight Ratio (LH/W)          

      Enter any two fields (on the Main Variables)  then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result. Note that
      Bank Angle and Load Factor both count as one field. Correlated variables will be calculated once the "Eval" button is
      pressed.

 

Pivotal Altitude

                                           
Ground Speed     [knots]   [km/h]   [sm/h]  
Pivotal Altitude     [ft]   [m]    

      Enter any field and instantly get the other field's result.

Off-Course
Problems

                                                                                                    

 Main Variables Part I
Distance Flown    [Nm]   [km]   [sm]   [ft]
Distance Off-Course    [Nm]   [km]   [sm]   [ft]
Course Change to Parallel    [o      


 Main Variables Part II

         
Distance to Destination    [Nm]   [km]   [sm]   [ft]
Distance Off-Course    [Nm]   [km]   [sm]   [ft]
Course Change to Conv.    [o      

 Correlated Variables
Total Course
Change to Intercept
   [o  

      Enter any two fields (on the Main Variables Part I)  then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result. Next
      enter any two fields (on the Main Variables Part II)  then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result. The
      "Total Course Change to Intercept" will be calculated as "Course Change to Parallel" + "Course Change to Conv."
 

 

Time to
VOR

                                                    
Time Flown (1-2)   s [hrs] [mins] [secs]
Bearing Change    [o      
Time to VOR   s [hrs] [mins] [secs]

      Enter any two fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result.

 

Distance from
VOR

                                                      
Time to VOR   s [hrs] [mins] [secs]
Ground Speed    [knots]   [km/h]   [sm/h]  
Distance to VOR    [Nm]   [km]   [sm]   [ft]

      Enter any two fields then press "Eval" on any remaining field for that field's result. Note: to obtain "Time to VOR" use
      the function above.
