The QuDieM QuikPLAN is designed for use with aircraft cruising at 90-110Kts in winds up to 40Kts, QuikPLAN is a practical flight computer for typical training and PPL flights. Requiring no additional protractors, scales etc, still-air magnetic heading and flight time may be read directly from a 1:500,000 chart.
Wind compensation factors are displayed numerically providing pilots of typical single-engine aircraft with an easy-to-use means of rapidly planning their route and determining wind compensations for heading and flight time. Once magnetic variation and forecast wind parameters for the planned route are set (prior to departure), single handed operation allows in-flight planning for diversions; an ideal aid when undertaking the navigation flight test.
In the age of GPS navigation it remains an important discipline that pilots plan their route and understand the effects wind will have on their flight. As a back-up to a GPS generated flight plan, to anticipate and plan wind corrections and as insurance against failure of GPS equipment or service, QuDieMQuikPLAN offers a simple means of enhancing flight safety and navigation accuracy in a single instrument. QuDieMQuikPLAN comes with full operating instructions and is an ideal flight planning aid for student and PPL alike.
