The ADF (Automatic Direction Finder) Simulator was designed to demonstrate the approximate indication that an ADF would display with varying positions of an aircraft in relation to certain an NDB (Non-Directional Beacon) type navigational facility.

Instructions: Drag aircraft on panel to change the aircraft's position in relation to the facility. If North Up is selected aircraft heading changes can be set by positioning the cursor close to the aircraft on the horizontal panel then clicking the button when a "-" or "+" appears. If Heading Up is selected, aircraft heading changes can be set by positioning the cursor close to the navigational facility on the horizontal panel then clicking the button when a "-" or "+" appears.

When Heading Up is selected, even though it may seem that the aircraft rotates around the navigational facility, the aircraft remains in the same position when changing heading. The reason for this is that the display will always show the navigational facility in the center of the display. This means that regardless if North Up or Heading Up is selected the aircrafts position will always be relative to the navigational facility.

CAUTION: The behavior of the ADF and other information displayed is approximate for illustration purposes only and may not reflect the actual readings on the ADF.
