A pilot wants his groundspeed to be 260mph on a bearing of 180 degrees. An east wind is blowing at 65mph. What should his airspeed and heading be so that the wind will blow him back onto his intended course?
The Attempt at a Solution
I drew it out, but apparently its wrong. I drew a right triangle with the wind as the horizontal and 260mph as the vertical and thats all i got. Please explain with concept too. Thanks
