 VOR Navigation Tutor / Simulator Dauntless Aviation


You need to enable Java in your browser to use Tim's Air Navigation Simulator

Control Function
Mouse Click/Drag on the Map Move the airplane, the transmitters, or change the wind vector (if in wind mode)
Click the Buttons Change the vector (OBS) for the instrument (except the RMI, DG)
Keyboard Up & Down Arrows Increase or decrease the airplane speed (60-300 kt - my future Lancair IVP)
Left and Right Arrows Increase or decrease turn rate (deg/sec)
Space Bar Instantly set the turn rate to zero
Enter Reposition transmitters to original positions - useful if you've moved them off the map
R Toggle radials on & off (dark colors = from side of VORs, light colors = TO side of VORs)
1 or 2 Switch instrument 1 or 2 between VOR, HSI, ADF, RMI, DG, or Text
W Toggle Wind mode (shown in status line) - when in wind mode you can click/drag on the map to change the wind vector
P Pause the animation (wind and airplane motion) - you can still rotate the instruments and drag the plane
T Trace - start/stop a trail of dots showing the airplane's path
H Hide - stop/start displaying the airplane and trace
L Lost - randomly reposition the airplane on the map - most useful when the plane is hidden

NAVAID Crib Sheet for Checkrides!

Learning NAVAIDs? Michael McCullough of TheLandingStrip.org has made an excellent crib sheet for use to help you remember all about VORs and NDBs for a flight test / checkride. This is useful stuff for Private through ATP, as you'll need to refresh some of this for each one of those checkrides
