KBED-KEEN-KBED

Untitled-1.jpgToday I spent a few hours before flying trying to plan a cross-country trip to KEEN. I used the classic “navlog” excel worksheet and filled it in manually using E6-B calculations. I then did the same on skyvector.com and compared the results – just to make sure I wasn’t doing something terribly wrong. I used the closed airfield at Moore and the Jaffrey KAFN as waypoints to check against. The pink routes are the “ideal” headings and the black path is our travel path. Winds were 290@12, which makes sense as the winds kept blowing us towards the north east and off our track. On the way back, we used the GPS and made corrections to our heading every once in a while.
