EVALUATION OF REQUIREMENTS FOR NAVIGATION SPECIALISTS IN AVIATION

Henri Almin

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: There are now three distinct types of aerial navigation being practiced. One is the fixing of position by celestial and other means, which is of necessity a means of telling the navigator where he was, not where he is at a precise moment. The second is pressure pattern navigation (which includes fixing of position), and requires that the navigator follow the shortest time path from one point to another. In this method, the fixing of position has become a secondary task, and the navigator uses this aid to help check the accuracy of the metro upper air forecasts. The third type is automatic navigation, which has definite li’mitations as will be explained later.
