The Navigation CD-ROM

The Navigation CD-ROM™is an interactive program that teaches how to navigate with VOR, NDB, GPS, HSI, RMI, and Airspace!

The Navigation CD-ROM contains five easytouse, interactive, multimedia tutorials:

  • VOR Navigation
  • NDB Navigation
  • HSI & RMI Use
  • GPS Navigation
  • Airspace

The five interactive multimedia tutorials listed above contain:

10 hours of narrated instruction
37 instructional sections
250 original graphics and animations
12 quizzes

Section 1: VOR Navigation Tutorial

This tutorial has already taught thousands of pilots at FBO’s and major universities how to use this essential navigation aid. All pilots can benefit from this tutorial, as it takes the user through basic navigation concepts, aircraft equipment, and realworld application. Many features are includedquizzes, easy to read graphics, and interactive simulations of aircraft equipment.

  • Basic and advanced VOR theory
  • Handson instruction with VOR equipment
  • Onscreen equipment simulation
  • Using VOR
  • Intercepting and tracking radials
  • Finding position
  • VOR specifications
  • Situational awareness
  • Sound narration and animation
  • Quizzes

Section 2: NDB Navigation Tutorial

NDB navigation can be confusing and frustrating, but not if it is presented in a simple and straightforward manner. The NDB Navigation tutorial teaches the pilot basic concepts that simplify NDB’s and provides standardized procedures that make flying NDB’s easy. The tutorial covers the use of aircraft equipment, homing, tracking, and interception of NDB bearings, and much more. You'll use simulations of actual aircraft equipment as reallife scenarios are presented.

  • Basic and advanced NDB theory
  • Instructs the use of ADF aircraft equipment
  • Onscreen interactive equipment simulations
  • Reallife navigation scenarios
  • Teaches bearing homing, intercepting, and tracking
  • Finding position
  • Use of aeronautical charts
  • NDB Specifications
  • Animation, sound narration, and quizzes

Section 3: Using HSI & RMI Tutorial

Once you've mastered VOR and NDB concepts, try your hand at learning the HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) and RMI (Radio Magnetic Indicator) instruments. HSI and RMI instruments are typically found in higherperformance aircraft, and their interpretation can be trickythat's where this tutorial comes in! If you're flying a higherperformance aircraft, or are acquiring an instrument rating, you'll save money and time by learning how to use these instruments on the ground.

  • HSI and RMI Overview
  • Components of HSI and RMI instruments
  • Onscreen interactive equipment simulations
  • Reallife navigation scenarios
  • Finding position
  • TIps and pointers for practical use
  • Animation, sound narration, and quizzes

Section 4: GPS Navigation Tutorial

GPS, or Global Positioning System, represents the cuttingedge of navigation technologyit also presents pilots with new challenges. The GPS Navigation tutorial teaches pilots, regardless of experience, basic navigation concepts, including dead reckoning and pilotage, and relates them to this new technology. The GPS satellite system and terminology are explained in detail, and you’ll use an interactive simulation of a panelmounted GPS receiver to learn handson, operational use of GPS. By "flying" an actual trip scenario from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Champaign, Illinois, you'll see just how easy and practical GPS navigation can be.

  • Basic theory of the GPS satellite system
  • Dead reckoning review
  • Interactive GPS receiver simulator
  • "Fly" a simulated trip using the GPS receiver
  • Online glossary
  • GPS error messages and safety factors
  • Use of aeronautical charts
  • Sound narration

Section 5: Airspace Tutorial

This tutorial walks you through the complex airspace structure of the United States. You’ll cover everything, from Class A airspace to Class G, including Special Use Airspace, Military Training Routes, and much more. Thorough explanations and 3D representations of airspace make this topic easy to understand. You’ll be an expert on airspace in a matter of hours.

  • Covers Classes A, B, C, D, E, and G airspace
  • Special Use, TRSA, and other miscellaneous airspace
  • 3D graphical representations
  • Communications examples
  • Clearly outlines weather and pilot requirements
  • Uses Chicago in examples, as the busiest airspace
  • Aeronautical chart explanations and callouts
  • Legal ramifications of different airspace types
  • Sound narration
