The Navigation CD-ROM

The Navigation CD-ROM introduces a new level of interactive aviation training.

Four tutorials, VOR Navigation, NDB Navigation, GPS Navigation, and Airspace prepare the pilot for action in the cockpit. Animation, sound, quizzes, and interactivity allow you to visualize navigation concepts while using simulations of actual aircraft equipment.

Makes Learning Navigation Easy
To make learning easy, each tutorial features an easy-to-use, point-and-click environment. If you can click a mouse, you can use these tutorials. No prior computer experience is necessary. During each tutorial, you're prompted where to click, when to proceed, and what information to provide during quizzes. If you need more time learning a concept, it's as easy as reviewing the section at hand.

Prepares Your For Action In The Cockpit
Whether you're a student, instructor, mechanic, planner, engineer, or aviation enthusiast, you'll develop the knowledge needed to help make you confident. While other products help you prepare for FAA written exams, the Navigation CD-ROM prepares you for action in the cockpit.

Develops Your Confidence
There's no feeling worse than not knowing where you are while flying. If you have the confidence and knowledge of the professionals, you'll be a safer pilot. The Navigation CD-ROM was designed to help give you that confidence.

Developed By Flight Instructors
The Navigation CD-ROM was designed upon a simple learning foundation - topics are taught by building on common, every-day knowledge. Developed by flight instructors and airline pilots who recognize the complexity of learning navigation, these tutorials assume zero knowledge of the subject material.

Fully Interactive
And what about interaction? The learning process should be exciting and fun. That's why the tutorials offer plenty of animation, interactive equipment simulation, quizzes, and running sound narration. This isn't a simple slide show presentation - you'll be involved in the learning process from the start.

VOR NAVIGATION: STEP BY STEP
This tutorial has already taught thousands of pilots at FBO’s and major universities how to use this essential navigation aid. All pilots can benefit from this tutorial, as it takes the user through basic navigation concepts, aircraft equipment, and real-world application. Many features are included—quizzes, easy to read graphics, and interactive simulations of aircraft equipment.

  • Basic and advanced VOR theory
  • Hands-on instruction with VOR equipment
  • On-screen equipment simulation
  • Using VOR
  • Intercepting and tracking radials
  • Finding position
  • VOR specifications
  • Situational awareness
  • Sound narration and animation
  • Quizzes

NDB NAVIGATION: STEP BY STEP
NDB navigation can be confusing and frustrating, but not if it is presented in a simple and straightforward manner. NDB Navigation: STEP BY STEP teaches the pilot basic concepts that simplify NDB’s and provides standardized procedures that make flying NDB’s easy. The tutorial covers the use of aircraft equipment, homing, tracking, and interception of NDB bearings, and much more. You'll use simulations of actual aircraft equipment as real-life scenarios are presented.

  • Basic and advanced NDB theory
  • Instructs the use of ADF aircraft equipment
  • On-screen interactive equipment simulations
  • Real-life navigation scenarios
  • Teaches bearing homing, intercepting, and tracking
  • Finding position
  • Use of aeronautical charts
  • NDB Specifications
  • Animation, sound narration, and quizzes

GPS NAVIGATION: STEP BY STEP
GPS, or Global Positioning System, represents the cutting-edge of navigation technology—it also presents pilots with new challenges. GPS Navigation: STEP BY STEP teaches pilots, regardless of experience, basic navigation concepts, including dead reckoning and pilotage, and relates them to this new technology. The GPS satellite system and terminology are explained in detail, and you’ll use an interactive simulation of a panel-mounted GPS receiver to learn hands-on, operational use of GPS. By "flying" an actual trip scenario from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Champaign, Illinois, you'll see just how easy and practical GPS navigation can be.

  • Basic theory of the GPS satellite system
  • Dead reckoning review
  • Interactive GPS receiver simulator
  • 'Fly' a simulated trip using the GPS receiver
  • Online glossary
  • GPS error messages and safety factors
  • Use of aeronautical charts
  • Sound narration

AIRSPACE: STEP BY STEP
This tutorial walks you through the complex airspace structure of the United States. You’ll cover everything, from Class A airspace to Class G, including Special Use Airspace, Military Training Routes, and much more. Thorough explanations and 3-D representations of airspace make this topic easy to understand. You’ll be an expert on airspace in a matter of hours.

  • Covers Classes A, B, C, D, E, and G airspace
  • Special Use, TRSA, and other miscellaneous airspace
  • 3-D graphical representations
  • Communications examples
  • Clearly outlines weather and pilot requirements
  • Uses Chicago in examples, as the busiest airspace
  • Aeronautical chart explanations and callouts
  • Legal ramifications of different airspace types
  • Sound narration

EASY TO USE
No computer experience is required to operate the simple tutorial controls - it's all point-and-click!

CLEARLY-WRITTEN LESSONS
Designed for the beginner, no prior navigation knowledge is assumed. Lessons build upon common, every-day experience, and introduce new concepts in a building-block manner.

LOGICAL PROGRESSION
Clear instructions tell the user where to go in the tutorial and when to proceed.

INTERACTIVE EQUIPMENT SIMULATION
Provides "hands-on" experience with operating actual aircraft equipment.

COLORFUL GRAPHICS
Colorful, clearly-marked graphics demonstrate topics in the most simple manner possible.

ANIMATION
Movement helps the user visualize navigation concepts, while keeping the learning process exciting.

SOUND NARRATION
Allows the user to concentrate on learning and on-screen action.

QUIZZES
The user can test knowledge by taking quizzes - topics can be reviewed at any time until concepts are learned.

A MORE EFFICIENT USE OF YOUR TIME AND MONEY
The amount of time and money spent reading books, reviewing with an instructor, and trying to learn in the tough cockpit environment will be greatly reduced.
