The wind correction in Air Navigation Desktop can be set in two ways: per leg or per route.

When we enter the wind correction per route the same entered values will apply for all legs.

If we set the wind correction per leg, different values will be entered per each leg. These values will be registered on the destination waypoint of the leg.

Example: In the current route of the image, the wind correction for the leg LFBK-WP will be entered for the WP waypoint.
The wind correction for the leg WP-LFLX will be entered for the LFLX waypoint.

The wind correction will show us the difference between heading and course that will be reflected for each waypoint in the route module as follows:

  • MH (magnetic heading)
  • MC (magnetic course)
  • TH (true heading)
  • TC (true course)


In the example above, we show the true values.

Values are configured from the «Preferences» module.

If you do not know the data wind per leg, you can use the forecast option from the top menu of the module.
