Abstract: The purpose of this article is to review certain theoretical aspects of aircraft heading control and their relation to the accuracy of high speed air navigation. Cruising speeds in excess of 400 knots, operation of complex equipment, and minimum crew complements limit the time that can be spent on routine navigational procedures in flight. At the same time there is no lesser requirement for precision in navigation to effect economies, insure flight safety, and maintain prescribed corridors and control times that are necessary for the successful completion of the mission.
