A graphical wind vector 'pad' and wind correction angle estimating practice game.
Wind Vector Pad
Instant, touch-n-drag, graphical tool to create wind triangles. Just drag the screen to add the wind vector to your air or ground vector. Instantly the numbers are calculated as you drag. Include magnetic variation and magnetic heading.
- Quicker and easier than a 'whiz-wheel', more accurate, more fun.
- More visual and visceral than a calculator.
- No awkward number tapping on touch screen number pads.
- Can be done with one hand on phone sized devices.
- Magnetic variance automatically included!
- The graphical wind triangle solution!
Instantly calculates the common air navigation problems:
- Wind vector from Air speed, heading and ground speed, ground track
- Heading and Ground speed from airspeed, course and wind
- Ground track from Airspeed, heading and wind
Set heading and fly
Practice estimating wind correction angles in your head. True airspeed, true course, and the wind vector are randomized, estimate the Wind correction angle, set your magnetic heading and fly. If you get there, points are added. The more times in a row you get to the destination the higher your points and the further away you get for the next attempt. Your estimate will need to get more and more accurate. Miss your destination, and all will be lost!
Wind vector is now held when changing index or center vector (air or ground). ie. changing true heading with the index adjusts the track not the wind and changing track with the index adjusts the heading. Similarly, when switching the center vector the vectors are moved without changing any headings or speeds.
