Thread: Canada's Northern Domestic Airspace

  1. Default Canada's Northern Domestic Airspace

    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.

  2. Default Update...

    This crazy anomaly applies to the Baker Lake region of Nunavut. Your mileage may vary.

    Yup, your right. Mileage does make a difference.
