Doyley,

I will attempt this.
A. ETA to arrival @ EGCC
B. VSR I have the same question.
C. Not sure.
D. Omni directional
E. TCA
F. TCA
G. Controlled airspace
H. Weighpoint is P124R a landmark so to speak of where you are inconjunction with your destination.
You are 12.1 NM right of your destination EGCC you should be @ bering 201 unless you were told by ATC to move your course for traffic or whatever they order you to do.

I am curious how well I did. I know that there are some that know this stuff. We all don't know it all and I don't even know what I don't know yet.

Embarassed 🤔

C. Track error- Difference between desired track and present track

D. Restricted Airspace

E. , F. , G. European Airspace boundaries

H. Navigational intersection (red dot)

CRJCapt,

If VSR is at 0 in this GPS screen shot then this aircraft is flying level flight and no movement is needed for glideslope?

Yes. You are still far from destination. At the proper point, the VSR will begin to increase by 100's as you approach your destination, to show what descent rate is required to make airport. Only a rough estimate. That is if your on the GPS course. Does not react directly to climbs and descents, when far from destination.🙂
