HUMAN ASPECTS OF NAVIGATION AT HIGH ALTITUDES

John R. Poppen

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: In discussing the human aspects of navigation at high altitudes it is well to consider the subject in its broader aspects, viz., navigation in high performance vehicles. There are unique problems at higher altitudes which affect navigation, but they are relatively easily solved in contrast to those incident to higher speeds and under all weather conditions. The aspects related to higher altitudes, per se, will be discussed as being peculiar to this feature of present day travel. Then considerations brought about by high speed and all weather flying will be discussed.
