Airplane Navigation From A to Z

Online single-subject course

Airplane navigation is changing. With aircraft GPS & moving maps finding their way into our cockpits, our biggest concern these days is no longer "How do I keep from getting lost?", but "How does all this stuff work?" With this airplane navigation course learn information you need to get the most out of your equipment—whether you fly with a basic panel, or an approach-certified GPS.
2.25 hours

You'll see how pilotage, dead reckoning & determining lines of position are still valuable to you, even if you fly with the most modern equipment. Learn things you never knew about VORs, NDBs & LORAN—go beyond to fully explore the world of GPS, HSIs, RMIs, EFIS & flight management systems.
This Course Covers...
  • Navigation Basics
  • From Landmarks to Radios
  • VOR Navigation

All good stuff, but needs upda
This was a great review of nav systems, but needs updating to the newer GA systems available. FMS is no longer just for the airlines. The latest glass systems have all that and more.
