Real trigonometry with real time, real world data

Summary

Using real time data from the App "Flightradar24" to calculate and confirm that the speed and track of a flight is correct using four different methods. Three methods involve plane trigonometry and these will depend on particular aspects of a flight: Method 1 deals with flights that are travelling due north or south, Method 2 deals with flights that are travelling due east or west, Method 3 deals with flights near the equator travelling in any direction. Method 4 uses spherical trigonometry and is the method that is actually used by flights as it has no restrictions on direction of travel or position. Delegates will practice with each of these methods either on their calculators or on a spreadsheet.
