Hv Doniol passes the Chichester test by doing the Hp and azimuth precalculations the day before so that all that is done during the flight are octant observations that are directly compared to Hp for an intercept. The plot goes down on the chart immediately. No inflight sight reduction calculating. Other methods of reduction can be used the same way to pass the Chichester test. Doing inflight sight reduction and flying a plane without an autopilot at the same time seems impossible but this is what Chichester did with the Bygrave over 80 years ago.
