Follow that Bug

Many IFR equipped aircraft today have an HSI.  This is a great instrument that simplifies tracking and almost eliminates reverse sensing.  Should you have one, a helpful hint is when you move the heading bug to a new heading, move it in the direction of the turn needed to get to that heading.  For example, if asked to turn left to 090 degrees, move the heading bug left to 090 and simply follow.
