How a helicopter pilot gets from point A to point B. Excellent as a reminder of those valuable hints and tips for a more professional approach. 1 hour 10 minutes How do aircraft find their destinations with such precision? What is that town down there by the beautiful lake? How much time is spent by the pilots preparing to answer the above questions? To be able to efficiently plan a flight, selecting a suitable cruise altitude and track, and then fly it as planned is the skill of navigating. The ins and outs of this are covered in meticulous detail. You will be shown some easy steps to take when planning a nav, and how to fill out the flight plan form. This involves drawing accurate lines on the map, reading the Area Forecast and selecting the appropriate wind velocity, as well as calculating your heading by use of the flight computer, and calculating fuel requirements for the flight. More in depth explanations than one might expect are provided when it comes to topics such as the magnetic compass and how to make best use of your map in flight. There is also a procedure and some general advice for you to use in case you find yourself temporarily uncertain of your position. With this introduction to Navigation you are off to a flying start, and there's nothing quite as satisfying as reaching your destination right on the ETA!
