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

VFR refresher
Very good refresher for the VFR pilot using VOR and ADF, can't vouch for the IFR pilot because I'm not one and have no intention of becoming one.
John O. 10/04/2022
Airplane Navigation From A to Z
Great intro and refresher for Nav. Last observation was so true. Pilots have to learn each airplane that they fly. Systems are super sophisticated with full on moving maps on handheld devices.
