    Hey Jack
    Here is one of our Video productions that goes over Cross Country flight planning. Its very well done and will teach you from start to end (including how to find true heading and course).

    The TC, TH, MH and CH numbers in the video are charted in the wrong column. You plotted true course and placed that into the correct column before the altitude column. That same number is jotted down under the TC column after the TAS column. From there you take the winds to get true heading and then variation for magnetic heading. Taking deviation and you get course heading.

    The video simply didn’t copy the true course number to the first column in the calculation and all the numbers are skewed to the left by one column. Hope this helps someone watching the video.
