THE BOOK THAT SOLVES THE MYSTERIES OF NAVIGATION

Navigating is easier and safer when you truly understand how it works. This enjoyably readable, in-the-cockpit guide helps you build that base of understanding, without pain. Written by flight instructor/mathematician/computer expert/teacher James S. Wolper, Understanding Mathematics for Aircraft Navigation helps you handle―and grasp―every aspect of getting from here to there, determining where you are now, taking full advantage of today’s sophisticated navigation equipment, and even using ancient celestial methods in an emergency.Even if you’re math-phobic, Wolper has a way of making the principles of navigation so simple and interesting you'll wonder why no one ever presented them this way before. This book steers you from the celestial to the electronic with nary a hitch. Along the way, you’ll build skills with geometry, chart-making, and long-distance flight planning, plus computer and instrument use. In the end, you'll have an unshakable foundation in navigation―and will even be able to explain it to the unenlightened.

FEATURES INCLUDE:
*Step-by-step narrative approach to navigation skills and judgment
*Complete introduction to magnetic compass use
*Flight planning―including long distance―fully explained
*Chart construction and use
*How-to’s on GPS (and other navigation systems)―plus how they work
*Memorable, time-saving rules of thumb
*In-your-head calculation tricks
*Complete discussion of the Earth’s shape
*Perfect for beginning and advanced pilots
