COMM - Request Azimut

Newbie question. :)

 

I am used to "IFRR"/compass, dead recknoning navigation in other WWII CFS, but in DCSW I can't understand what the controller say when you request Azimuth - "Navigation Assistance".

 

Sometimes what they say coincides with plane actual heading, but other is complete meaningless, suggesting for example I am at N of ATC, but I know that I are a SW.

 

How correct interpret their information? Or they are pertinent only for jets and modern equipment?

It isn't the position of your aircraft but the vector and distance you need to fly to line you up with the runways entry pattern.

 

ie: ATC says fly 270 for 10, QFE 28.8 = fly compass heading 270 degrees for 10 km and set you altimeter pressure setting to 28.8 for correct altimeter readings, follow those instructions and you should be flying directly at the airfield / Farp.

Ty.

 

But this information is answer for "Incoming" (F1).

 

When I ask "Azimuth"(F2) their answer is:

 

"ATC (Batumi) - Dodge 1-1, Batumi-ADF, your heading 325".

In this picture somewhat reciprocal to my actual heading - not sure about Magnetic Deviation in the map.
