Learning Objectives

In the earlier stages of aviation the pilot's efforts were completely absorbed in the problem of taking off and keeping his plane in the air. Improvements in aircraft design and engines have done a great deal towards simplifying this problem. The aviator's attention is drawn more and more to the problem of finding his way in the air. Without navigation a pilot would be of no value on active service. Once out of sight of his own airport the safety of the aircraft, the crew, and the success of his mission depend largely upon accurate navigation, i.e. air traffic control is provided for the purpose of preventing collisions between aircraft in the air and between aircraft and obstructions on the ground, as well as smoothing and maintaining an orderly flow of air traffic. In this workshop students will cover important aspects air navigation basics and systems including the following: Air navigation means / different aircraft speeds , trajectory and path / determination of aircraft position, different methods for determination of direction of aircraft in space / different navigation systems / inertial navigation systems / instrumental landing systems
