Are you new a the world of FlyGo? You are not sure if our applications worth the price? No worries, there is a FREE app developed for pilots where you can learn the basics and see how FlyGo can help you in practicing for your IFR rating.

What is ADF and RMI?

There are a dozen of things a pilot must know, especially if it comes to instrumental flying. You can know all of the instruments you can see because without this knowledge you cannot fly an airplane, right? While ADF stands for Automatic Direction Finding, RMI refers to Radio Magnetic Indicator. The ADF and the RMI both can help to set your route to the airport you want to, but there are lots of differences between these two.

ADF is an aircraft radio-navigation instrument that automatically and continuously displays the relative bearing from the aircraft to a suitable airport. In contrast, RMI is an alternate ADF display providing more information than a standard ADF. While the ADF shows relative angle of the transmitter with respect to the aircraft, an RMI display incorporates a compass card, actuated by the aircraft’s compass system, and permits the operator to read the magnetic bearing to or from the transmitting station, without resorting to arithmetic.
