Describe the information that should be displayed by ADF/ VOR/ DME instrumentation to confirm position in relation to:

(a) a navigation aid or aids; or

(b) a magnetic track.

Locate a position on a chart:

(a) from an NDB given magnetic direction to and from;

(b) from a VOR given radial and DME distance;

(c) from a pair of NDB tracks or VOR radials.

Calculate the distance from a VOR/NDB, given track, groundspeed and two VOR/NDB radial/bearing fixes.

Calculate the lateral distance off track, given track error and distance from a navaid.

Using the transfer of position lines procedure ( °M), determine a new position, given:
