Navigation and Navigation Aids

AVIA 2002

Course description

Students undertake an in-depth study of air navigation methods, equipment, procedures, and how they relate to Air Navigation Systems. Students practice various navigation techniques in both a classroom and simulator setting, and investigate advanced visual techniques and the proper use of a wide variety of electronic-based aids to navigation. They develop skills in Visual Flight Rules (VFR) navigation using Variable Omnidirectional Ranging / Automatic Direction Finder (VOR/ADF) and Global Proximity System (GPS). Approximately 40% (17 hours) of the course will be conducted in a computer lab environment for instruction, practice, and evaluation of two simulated Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) navigation exercises.
