1 in 60 Rule

This is a method of assessing distance between diverging (or converging) tracks.  

For every degree difference between two tracks there is a 1 nautical mile separation after 60 nautical miles of travel.  

E.g. If a track is flown 5˚ Off heading, after 12 nautical miles there will be 1 nm separation.  

This only works up to about 15˚ of track separation.
