This new Jeppesen EASA ATPL Softback manual is designed to teach the subject of General Navigation.
The principles of airborne navigation have evolved considerably over the last 100 years. With commercial aircraft now capable of flights in excess of 20 hours, with much of the duration spent over the oceans, navigation techniques have had to evolve to meet these new demands.
Covers the basics of navigation, such as the structure of the solar system, the origin of the seasons, geomagnetism and the function of a magnetic compass and navigational definition of key terms. A separate chapter deals with the issue of aeronautical charts and the different projection methods. Finally, this volume is dedicated to the navigation in flight, the detection of deviations from the planned course and any necessary corrections, the creation of a flight plan and use of the information contained therein in flight. Always up to date, printed on demand and using QR codes to provide animated graphics, this book presents this knowledge step-by-step
The JAR ATPL (A) General Navigation examination requires a competency in the calculations of distance, direction, speed, and time. It also requires a detailed understanding of maps and charts, including their properties and limitations. This volume takes the prospective Airline Transport Pilot from basic navigational and plotting skills to the principles and application of Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). Not only does this volume prepare the student for the General Navigation examination, it also discusses the practical aspects of navigation that might be encountered during commercial airline operations.
