What kind of pilot are you? An advanced avionics type? A traditional
The truth is that you've got to be both.
You've got to have a solid foundation of using advanced avionics. And, you
have to know how to do it old-school-style. With professional-grade knowledge of
both, you'll be at your best when you need it most.
This interactive course starts with essential VOR navigation. You'll learn
all the traditional VOR methods, which are current and completely applicable to
today's flying. From there, advance to use of an HSI and bearing pointers.
Whether you're using a mechanical HSI instrument or an electronic HSI, you'll
learn how to use it like a pro. Next, GPS is introduced, explaining how it
works, how it is used, and the incredible benefits for your flying. And finally,
it's all tied together by teaching the essentials of advanced avionics. You'll
learn what an FMS is and how its used, how to program a course, and how to make
changes in flight. You'll gain a true understanding of the most important
features of advanced avionics.
But, there's a lot more to know than mere button-pushing. You can't just
"jump in and go." You've got to know the pitfalls and how to manage them. This
training gives you the deep understanding and procedural background that are
drilled into professional flight crews that use the same equipment. Whether
you're using a small panel-mounted unit or a top-of-the-line multi-function
display system, the topics in this training will give you a foundation that you
can't learn anywhere else.
Navigation and Advanced Avionics includes:
- 4 hours of narrated instruction
- 38 training sections
- 385 instructional scenes, over 140 of which are interactive
- 50 Hangar Time sidebars
- 95 quiz questions
- 50-question Final Exam (provides FAA WINGS credit)
Navigation and Advanced Avionics contains these easy-to-use, interactive,
The overall purpose of this training is to bridge the gap between traditional
navigation and advanced avionics. Both areas of knowledge are essential for
today's pilot. The problem is that too many pilots are not sufficiently trained
in the general concepts of advanced avionics. You can't rely on "switchology" to
use advanced avionics—there are many pitfalls and ramifications that the pilot
needs to be aware of.
#2: VOR Navigation Tutorial
It's essential to know VOR navigation, whether your aircraft is equipped with
traditional VOR equipment or advanced avionics. VOR is here to stay in our
national airspace system for many years to come. Whether you're taking a flight
test that requires you to be proficient with VOR, or your advanced avionics GPS
system has failed, this training will give you the professional-grade VOR skills
you'll need to stay safe. This module contains these sections:
- VOR: What are VORs?
- VOR: Theory
- VOR: Equipment
- VOR: Using VOR
- VOR: Finding Position
- VOR: Tracking
- VOR: Specifications
- VOR: Flight Scenario 1
- VOR: Flight Scenario 2
#3: HSI and Bearing Pointers Tutorial
The use of an HSI is more common than ever in today's airplanes. Some
aircraft have mechanical HSIs, and nearly every Multi-Function Display (MFD)
avionics system includes an HSI display. Many HSIs include bearing pointers as
well. The use of the HSI and bearing pointers is an essential skill, which if
properly understood, makes the pilot's job of navigating much easier than using
older instrumentation. This module contains these sections:
- HSI: What is HSI?
- HSI: Fundamentals
- HSI: Using HSI
- Bearing Pointers: Fundamentals
- Bearing Pointers: Usage
#4: GPS Navigation Tutorial
GPS is an incredible tool for navigation. It's more prevalent than ever, and
it is one of the various navigation systems that enables point-to-point
navigation. But, understanding GPS requires old-school knowledge of
dead-reckoning. This tutorial relates traditional dead-reckoning to this
advanced technology, giving the pilot a clear understanding of how GPS works and
what it provides. This module contains these sections:
- GPS: Dead Reckoning Basics
- GPS: What is GPS?
- GPS: The GPS System
- GPS: Glossary
#5: Advanced Avionics Part I Tutorial
Advanced avionics in general aviation aircraft is the greatest cockpit
enhancement in decades. Many manual tasks are now automated, allowing the pilot
to focus on other tasks. But, it also puts the pilot in the position of being a
"cockpit manager," which is a new skill for many pilots. There are pitfalls and
ramifications to this change of mindset, and a pilot cannot rely on mere
"button-pushing" to operate advanced avionics. This training provides the deep
understanding and procedural background that are drilled into professional
flight crews who use similar equipment. This module contains these sections:
- Advanced Avionics: Introduction
- Advanced Avionics: Cautions
- Advanced Avionics: New Skills Required
- Advanced Avionics: PFD Overview
- Advanced Avionics: MFD Overview
- FMS: Introduction
- FMS: What Is FMS?
- FMS: RNAV Basics
- FMS: Navigation Database
#6: Advanced Avionics Part II Tutorial
The concept of a Flight Management System, or FMS, is continued in this module.
Improper use of the FMS can result in a variety of problems, such as airspace
violations, navigation errors, terrain separation problems, and even loss of
aircraft control. Because mere "button-pushing" is not adequate for using
advanced avionics, this module explains the general and proper use of an FMS.
Having clear understanding of what the FMS is and how it works is essential for
any pilot using this equipment. This module contains these sections:
- FMS: Entering The Route
- FMS: Checking The Route
- FMS: Coupling The FMS
- FMS: Enroute
- FMS: Descent and VNAV
- FMS: Holding
- FMS: Instrument Approaches
- FMS: Missed Approach
- FMS: Information Systems
The 50-question Final Exam puts your knowledge to the test, and FAA WINGS credit
is provided. A passing grade validates your general understanding of VOR, GPS,
RNAV, FMS, and advanced avionics and enables you to approach such equipment with
knowledge and confidence.
