Navigation: Vector Analysis

Today, we’ll put together a few things we’ve learned on the Learn To Fly Blog to introduce a skill every beginning student should develop: thinking in terms of a wind triangle. Check out last week’s posts on magnetic variation and using your E6B Flight Computer to determine magnetic heading, as well as early posts on navigation. […]

Navigation: VOR

We’ve had a few posts about the Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR). Take a look at our introduction and at our CFI’s posts on VOR service volumes and a couple questions that might show up on your exam. Today, we’ll illustrate tracking to and from a VOR station. This post is excerpted from the […]

CFI Brief: VOR Service Volumes

VORs are anything but standard. When operating under the guidance of radio navigational aids like a VOR it’s important to understand the restrictions and standard service volumes (SSV) associated with each aid of intended use. VOR standard service volumes are designated in three classes: Terminal (T), Low Altitude (L), and High Altitude (H). Your aeronautical […]

Navigation: VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR)

We’re devoting this week’s posts to the VOR, a radio navigation system used worldwide by private and commercial pilots. This introduction comes from The Student Pilot’s Flight Manual, by William Kershner. The most useful of the enroute radio navigation aids, other than GPS, is the VHF omnirange, or VOR as it is sometimes called. The VOR frequency […]
