Maintaining Proficiency: Practicing All Navigation Skills

Advanced avionics systems offer you several ways to navigate. Numerous studies have demonstrated the potential for deterioration of navigational skills that are not regularly practiced. It is important to get regular practice using groundbased navigation facilities as well as RNAV sources. One way to maintain proficiency is to consistently use ground-based navigational facilities as a backup to RNAV systems.

Essential Skills

  • Select any type of ground-based radio navigation approach.
  • Correctly tune and set up the conventional navigation receiver for that procedure.
  • Correctly monitor the navaid for properly identification and validity.
  • Correctly select and be able to use the desired navigation source for the autopilot.
