NAVIGATION METHODS COMPARED

Captain P. V. H. Weems

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: A brief description will be given of the methods and equipment used in the following type planes: 1. Small, low-speed aircraft without radio; 2. Scheduled transcontinental airliner; 3. Scheduled tram-ocean airliner, and 4. Long-range aircraft in polar areas. Since most of us are more interested in a general picture of the technique, methods and equipment used in different type planes, many of the details, while available, will not be included. Should anyone desire specific information, we will undertake to supply it without taking up valuable time of those who do not need such detailed information. Most of the material for navigation in polar areas was gathered on a flight to the North Pole in 1948.
