The component of the wind blowing west needs to be determined. Determine that value (XXX)

Then, the Easterly component of the pilots velocity vector must cancel that, or SinTheta=XXX/400 Where theta is the angle E of N.

check my thinking.

how do i calculate the component of the wind blowing west? is it like:

sin(45) x 110km/h = 77.78km/h ? thanks again!

Yes. That is correct.

thank so much!!
