Hey guys, In my training, I'm having some difficulty in particular situations visualizing how to setup for a DME ARC and I'm wondering if either someone can help explain this better, or point me in the direction of some material that might help me nail this. Basically, in the sim (x-flight based), I'll be flying along, and they say, ok, well.... yer doing great... but now I'm going to drag your airplane to some random spot, and I want you to enter a 15 DME arc to the East on the 040 Radial of some VOR. Ok, so maybe it's the fact that we're not pausing for this setup, and I was dragged to some "unknown" point at this point.... not sure, but the way I'm working this out in my head is as follows: Step 1: Figure out where the heck I am. Do this, by centering up on the needle on the VOR with a TO indication and / or if the DME # is getting bigger or smaller . Step 2: Read out the RADIAL i'm currently tracking. In this example, Let's say I'm on on the 030 tracking outbound (FROM), and 25 DME. Step 3: Align Heading / BUG to 030 and keep needle centered for time being. Step 4: Interpret - Okay, so by what I said above.... the way I'm visualizing this, is that I'm North and slightly East of the VOR by 25 DME..... to get to and intercept the 040 Radial, I need to turn RIGHT to a heading somewhere South, South West to intercept the 040 and start to close the DME gap to 15. Step 5: Tune the OBS to the 040 Radial, and turn RIGHT to a South, South West direction to intercept the 040. Once the needle is centered track either the 040 outbound or the reciprocal 230 inbound until DME 15.5 Step 6: Established on the 040, at 15.5, make a standard rate turn to the RIGHT (EAST) to 130, Twist the OBS right 10 degrees, roll out on 130. Step 7. Wait for the Needle to near the "doughnut", start clock, turn standard right for 10 seconds, stop clock, roll-out, Twist to OBS 10 degrees. Step 8. - If DME is getting smaller than 15, turn left of present heading by 10 degrees or more to halt or reverse decrease AND / OR shorten the next 10 second turn (8 seconds or whatever feels like the variance). if DME is getting bigger than 15, turn right of present heading by 10 degrees or more to halt or reverse increase AND / OR lengthen the next 10 second turn (12 seconds as an example). Repeat steps 7 and 8 until it's necessary to end the ARC I more concerned with making sure I understand how to visualize where the heck i'm at, get established on the right Radial, and making that first 90 degree turn. I think I'm confused there.... not sure if I have all that info right.
