How the WCA (Wind Correction Angle) is calculated

The Wind Correction Angle (WCA) is computed from the Acute Wind Angle (AWA), which is an acute angle (< 90°) between the course and the wind direction. This gives the crosswind component which is used to calculate the desired correction (WCA) to fly the intended course.
