A vector is a magnetic heading given to an aircraft from air-traffic control (ATC) to be flown for a period of time or distance. It can be a magnetic compass heading or the numerical value of that heading.

A direction expressed in magnetic degrees by air-traffic control to an aircraft in order for the aircraft to fly in that direction. Vectors are sent to aircraft for airspace transitions, departures, approaches, and crash avoidances.

Vectors, Forces and Moments
Representing physical quantities by vectors A graphic representation of forces is a valuable tool in physics. Some explanations in aeronautics require the use of such representation.

Vectoring. Navigational guidance by assigning headings.
Venturi tube. A specially shaped tube attached to the outside of an aircraft to produce suction to allow proper operation of gyro instruments.

Vector: A turn to a particular compass direction requested of an aircraft by Air Traffic Control, usually to direct it toward its destination.

Vector A direction and altitude assigned to an aircraft by air traffic control.

Vector - Compass heading instructions issued by ATC in providing navigational guidance by radar.

Vectors and Not Talking
Think before you talk to reduce excess verbiage
You will know when to talk when you understand the system.
Good controllers know the limits of good pilot performance.

With vectors to final the norm these days and not the exception, it's rare to perform the procedure turn. Yet, ATC may still expect it. When in doubt, ask.

thrust vectoring Rotation of a vehicle's thrust axis to control its trajectory or support its weight.
TIALD Thermal imaging and laser designation (pod).

Vector diagram showing lift, weight and centripetal force acting on a fixed-wing aircraft during a banked turn.

A vector (such as force) has geometric extent in one dimension. The drawing of a vector has a certain length. This is in contrast to scalars, which have no geometric extent. They are zero-dimensional, and are drawn as points with no size.

No radar vectors, flying it "on our own".
With radar, from an IAF, Initial Approach Fix.
With radar, with vectors to the Outer Marker.

The force vectors are different in each region, because the rotational relative wind is slower near the blade root and increases continually toward the blade tip.

Let's say you're vectoring - turning - an aircraft so that it can establish on the ILS for an airport.

Diver Patrol: Aircraft in flight to be vectored to intercept V-1 unguided missiles.
Dogfight: Aerial battle between aircraft, aerial combat, melee, "scrap".
Doodlebug: Slang for German V-1 unguided missle
DP: Displaced Person(s) ...

The lift, drag, and weight forces that are acting on the kite during flight are displayed as vectors (arrows) with the lengths proportional to one another.

Data that defines aircraft parameters, such as position, velocity, attitude; Some standard terms for state data include: Groundspeed vector, wind speed vector, true airspeed vector, true bearing, true track, ground track angle, relative bearing, ...

Since the two vectors are not located at the same point along the chord line, a twisting force is exerted about the center of pressure.

If you feel that the separation for wake turbulence is not adequate, do request a different vector or more separation or even a different altitude. You can also take own responsibility and maintain own separation to keep clear.

Acceleration: Rate of change of velocity, either scalar or vector.

Approach Gate - An imaginary point used within ATC as a basis for vectoring aircraft to the final approach course.

FBI: Four Two X-Ray, traffic twelve o'clock six miles south bound, five thousand three hundred unknown. [42X's traffic has not made contact with the tower, thus is "unknown."] ...

TERMINAL RADAR SERVICE AREA (TRSA) - Airspace surrounding designated airports wherein ATC provides radar vectoring, sequencing, and separation on a full-time basis for all IFR and participating VFR aircraft.

Used in attitude controlled vehicles to support motor so it can be deflected to produce control vectored thrust. Also the support of a gyroscope in a stable platform or in a rate gyro.
Gaseous OXygen.

"A door finally opened when Vector Air, a Cessna-oriented service center in the Denver area, offered her a position to work the front desk and handle customer service, promising that when flight training picked up, ...

Otherwise, fumbling for a replacement fuse as you are being vectored to the final approach, or at night with a flashlight in your mouth, can lead to an awkward, if not fatal, situation.

If you use a separate postal address, it can be a New Zealand address or an overseas address, but be aware that Vector magazine is only sent to New Zealand postal addresses.

Business / Search Engine Optimization (SEO) / Inverse Document Frequency (IDF): Inverse Document Frequency is a term used to help determine the position of a term in a vector space model.

The pilot will offset the heading of the aircraft from the desired track by a calculated amount, and the aircraft's velocity combined with the wind through vector addition will give a net movement in the desired direction.
