Answer #1

A plane with air speed of 620km/h is supposed to fly in the
direction of 27◦ north of east. A wind is blowing from east at a
speed of 110km/h. In what direction should the pilot head the
plane?
Answer: 22.4 degrees north of east

A pilot must fly a plane due north (90 degrees) to reach a
destination. The plane can fly at 323 km/h in still air. A wind is
blowing out of the northeast (225 degrees) at 40 km/h. What is the
speed of the plane relative to the ground? The pilot must point the
plane to the east of north in order to compensate for the wind
speed.

A pilot must fly his plane due north to reach his destination.
The plane can fly at 300 km/h in still air. A wind is blowing out
of the northeast at 90 km/h.
(a) What is the speed of the plane relative to the ground?
(b) In what direction must the pilot head his plane to fly due
north?

The pilot of a small plane maintains an air speed of 66 knots
(or nautical miles per hour) and wants to fly due North (0?) with
respect to the Earth.
If a wind of 31 knots is blowing from the east (90?), calculate
the heading (azimuth) the pilot must take.

A plane is capable of flying at a speed of 180 km/h in still
air. The pilot takes off from an airfield and heads due north
according to the planes compass. After 30 mins of flight time, the
pilot notices that, due to the wind the plane has actually traveled
80km at an angle of 5 degrees east of north. What is the wind's
velocity vector? Make a diagram, show step by step clearly and the
reasoning of each step.

QUESTION 3 An airplane flying at a speed of 600 km / h
to the north is held by a wind blowing at a speed of 50 km / h from
the north-east direction. What should be the speed and direction of
the plane to go in the same direction (north)?

03.3 You fly an airplane to a city that is 800 miles to the west
and 300 miles to the north of your starting point. The wind is
blowing from east to west. Your plane has an air speed of 200 mph
and the trip takes 3.55 hours. a) In what direction did you aim the
plane? b) What is the speed of the wind?

An airplane is heading due south at a speed of 662 km/h . A wind
begins blowing from the southwest at a speed of 80 km/h (average).
In what direction should the pilot aim the plane so that it will
fly due south? Express your answer to three significant figures and
include the appropriate units.

An airplane flies due north with an air speed of260 km/h . A
steady wind at 65 km/h blows eastward. (Air speed is the speed
relative to the air.)
What is the plane’s ground speed (vpg)?
If the pilot wants to fly due north, what should his heading
be?

An
aircraft has a cruising speed of 100m/s. On this particular day,
wind id blowing toward the east at 75.0m/s.
a) If the plane pointed due north, what is the
magnitude&direction of the velocity relative to the
ground?
b) If pilot wishes the plane to travel due north, determine
the direction the plane should initially be pointed. Could you
please include the degree and direction like [W of N]?
c) If the plane travelled due north as shown in part...
