ATTACHMENT #1 shows known parameters and vector polygon required.
A light plane flies with airspeed (relative to the air) of 500 km/hr. The pilot sets out to fly to a city 800 km due north and finds that the plane must be headed 10 degrees east of north to fly in a straight line to the city. She arrives in 2.0 hours.

Observe ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram with known parameters. Note that a diagram showing the relationship required of the vectors is very important as your first step in writing a solution.
When an object moves relative to the medium it moves in, and the medium moves relative to the ground, the velocities of the plane and the medium add ...
In a step by step soution the problem is solved with very good explanations.
