Abstract: Area navigation (RNAV) provides freedom for establishing courses. This type of system allows the airplane to proceed via navigational guidance to almost any geographical position without having to overfly a radio navaid. This capability requires ingenuity for charting since many routes flown by RNAV-equipped aircraft do not fly on published courses, but prefer to go present position direct to their destination.
