thanks a lot, that really helped me!! also cap joe is my fav YouTube about aviation!!
Short and sweet answer, A radio that acts kinda like a beacon that planes can hone in to like a GPS.
The best way I can explain a VOR is that it is a roundabout in the sky. So similar to the way you’d go around a roundabout to get on a different road, you’ll follow one airway into a VOR to either stay on the same one or connect to a different airway.
thanks and also what is this “hone”?
Hone means locate, focus etc. It’s not an aviation specific word.
That’s a really good video too.
Captain Joe has a good video on it
Same!! He’s awesome!
