Pressure Pattern Navigation

Go back to the main Flight Navigation Page.

This category discusses pressure differential techniques and how they affect pressure pattern navigation. Topics, such as constant pressure surface, geostophic wind, pressure computations and plotting, D readings, effective true airspeed, K factor, pressure line of position, Bellamy drift, and the MB-4 solution of Bellamy drift are all discussed. Also explained are the limitations of pressure differential techniques and how they are affected my meteorological conditions.
