Assuming that :
- You are flying on a compass heading of 141°,
- The compass deviation is given as +3°,
- The variation read on the chart is 3° East,
- The wind correction angle is +10° and
- The relative bearing to the airport is 307°
what would the radial from the station be to the true north?
I thought QTE was a standard term. I did not know that American pilots did not know it.
*QTE: True Eminent from station — What is my true bearing from you? QTE = Reciprocal of true bearing to station.
To derive the true bearing I did the following.
I assume that since compass heading is 141° and deviation is +3°
Magnetic heading should be 141-3 = 139°
True heading (would be without the variation given as 3°E) = 139 +3 = 141°
True bearing to station = True heading + relative bearing = 141+307 = 448°
True bearing = 448-360 = 88°
True eminent from station = 268°
However the answer given is 274°.
I want someone with more aviation knowledge to tell me if I am wrong and if so, where is the "break" in my logic?
Reason for question: Navigation problem with an answer given, however I believe the answer to be wrong - Needed an expert opinion.
