Canada's Northern Domestic Airspace


Recommended Posts

In Canada's Northern Domestic Airspace, the magnetic north pole is about in the middle of that airspace, making compass readings unreliable. Headings and VOR orientation are oriented towards true north, rather than magnetic north.


Microsoft Flight Simulator 8 and 9 have reversed this. The compass reads true heading, while the VORs are oriented towards magnetic north.


This may cause a little confusion. Had me befuddled for a while.
