The Wind Correction Angle...
  • A
    Will arise whenever the drift is changing during a flight along a fixed track.
  • B
    Will be established whenever a crosswind is experienced and desired track is kept.
  • C
    Is the angle in distance between the desired track and the track made good.
  • D
    All three answers above are correct.

WIND CORRECTION ANGLE (WCA). The angle (º) between the Course and the Heading that is required for the aircraft to track that Course when there is wind. Wind Correction Angle is the same value as drift but it is applied in the opposite sense.

The WCA is basically added when the wind is from the right or subtracted when the wind is from the left to the course.
