THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO PRACTICAL, SAFE AIR NAVIGATION
- FULL COLOR THROUGHOUT: the theory and practice of air navigation cannot be fully explained or adequately understood with black-and-white illustrations; color is vital. This edition uses full color from start to finish.
- FULL-SIZE 8.5" x 11" edition: large, easy-to-read text and illustrations.
- CASEBOUND: hardcover binding looks great and protects your book from everyday damage.
- Printed on PREMIUM-WEIGHT 70 lb paper stock for superior quality & longevity: ideal for professional libraries!
Aviators use air navigation to determine where they are going and how to get there. This handbook serves as a reference for techniques and methods used in these critical skills, covering all aspects of air navigation for navigators and students, including how to measure, chart the earth, and use flight instruments to solve navigation problems.
It also provides information on flight publications, in-flight procedures and low-altitude navigation, and includes reference and supporting material covering mathematical equations, chart and navigational symbols, and celestial computation aids.
