Abstract: The basic methods of polar navigation which have been used by Scandinavian Airlines System on transpolar flights for more than eight years have not changed with the introduction of high-speed jet aircraft on the polar routes. However, the higher speeds and the higher fuel consumption make it necessary to introduce new procedures in order to streamline polar navigation and relieve the navigator of time-consuming paper work so he can concentrate on the correlation between navigation and fuel economy. Transition to polar jet navigation consists of this streamlining of polar navigation procedures, fmailiarization with new navigational equipment, and familiarization with the new concept of fuel economy introduced by the jet aircraft.
