Abstract: “Practical aspects of high speed navigation,” I would much prefer that it be called the “Practical aspects of jet aircraft navigation.” I say this, because the actual increase in speed is only one of the problems-and certainly not the major one. Basic navigation theory is as equally sound for the low speed as for the high speed aircraft. The real problems that arise in the navigation of jet aircraft can be related to the changes in the operating characteristics of jets, and are, in effect, more critical cases of problems which are also present in the navigation of orthodox aircraft.
