The Flight Navigation Correction Angle calculator computes the navigation angle/azimuth correction angle (Δ) using the wind speed (WS), wind direction (β),
Correction angle parameters Flight Heading (α) and an Air Speed (AS) .
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Navigation Correction Angle (Δ): The calculator returns the angle in degrees. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The Navigation Correction Angle formula calculate the course correction angle needed to compensate for wind of a certain bearing and at a certain velocity in order to continue at the desired heading. This is done with.
