    Re: A Sun-compass landfall?

    Hello!

    Thank you all for the comments.

    I think there is some misunderstanding about my Sun-compass landfall idea.

    I meant to keep not the Sun's azimuth constant but the Sun's bearing angle (wind-drift corrected). The resulting track over ground would curve - as the Sun's azimuth sweeps to the west and as the plane travels across it. The only condition to do the landfall is to fly faster than the lowest limit - relative to the GHASun's speed of change.

    But I agree - the idea is generally bad.

    Warm regards,
    Tony
