Here is a cheat sheet showing the difference between true course, headings, & bearings along with a list of what is described in magnetic verses true, and statute miles (SM) verses nautical miles (NM).
I laid it out in Word in 2 columns so when it is printed, you can fold them and they fit perfectly in the binder. See Organizational Video.
*If you see any errors, please leave a comment. Remember all cheat sheets need to be modified for your airport and plane and should not replace anything your CFI tells you!
* Images for these cheat sheets were taken from online and in some cases modified.
This website’s purpose is to bring together women & men, new pilots & seasoned ones for the purpose of sharing resources and information about aviation.
