Air navigation basic skills used to get an aircraft from one airport to another.
Basic skills on using compass and clock.
Understanding of True/magnetic/Compass North
Magnetic declination and Compass Deviation
Practical example using flight simulator

In this course you will be able to understand concepts such as : True North, magnetic North, Compass North, Magnetic declination (variation) , Compass deviation, Heading, Drift, Track. All these items are required to be able to plot on a chart required flight path when flying from one airport to another using one or multiple checkpoints.

The level of knowledge is basic and does not require any prerequisites.

Also in this course we will go through basic calculation of time estimations in reference to ground speed of an aircraft in order to know when we reach checkpoints or our final destination.

Introduction

1
What to expect. Course content.

Course overview.


2
Introduction

My name is Grama Alexandru and I will teach you the basics of air navigation.

3
Compass. Heading. Track.

What is a compass ?

What do we use it for ?

What is heading and track ?

All these questions will be answered in this lecture.

4
North: TRUE, MAGNETIC, COMPAS

In this lecture you will learn about TRUE, MAGNETIC and COMPAS North and the relation between them.

Also you will identify what is Magnetic declination (variation) and Compass deviation.

5
Chart plotting.

Using a chart you will be able to identify how to plot a flight plan and how to identify heading/track using magnetic declination and compass deviation.

6
Time estimation in reference to ground speed.

Basic calculation of time estimates based on expected ground speed of the aircraft.

7
Practical example using flight simulation.

Practical example using the plotted chart and time estimates. Video edited to reduce the time in-between checkpoints.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
