AMATEUR NAVIGATION IN LIGHT AIRCRAFT

Walter W. Zimmerman

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The increasing use of single-engined light airplanes for business and pleasure has resulted in navigational problems and methods peculiar to this type of flying. While there are reliable systems for navigating large aircraft on long flights with the help of complex electronic equipment and highly trained personnel, the average light plane pilot must rely on methods which are severely limited due to restrictions on weight, space, and cost as well as his own lack of more than a rudimentary sort of navigational training.
