INTRODUCTION TO NAVIGATION SYSTEMS
In this stage of your flight training, you will be introduced to the elements of Instrument
Navigation (INAV). You will build upon the skills learned thus far to safely navigate from one
point to another in actual or simulated IMC.
You will learn to depart from one airfield, navigate using radio and GPS navigation procedures,
and direct the aircraft for an approach and landing at your destination. This is accomplished by
maintaining a constant awareness of your geographical position through the operation and
interpretation of the aircraft's navigation systems and instruments.
You will also learn flight planning and the standard procedures for communicating with ATC
agencies in an IFR environment.
To learn what you need to about instrument navigation, it is necessary to be thoroughly familiar
with this FTI. Additionally, you must also consult other sources of information including, but
not limited to:
Aircraft NATOPS Manual
NATOPS Instrument Flight Manual (NIFM)
Area Planning (AP1, AP1A, AP1B)
Instrument Approach and Departure Procedures (DP)
IFR Enroute Supplement
11. Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM)
12. FAA ATC Manual 7110.65
13. FAR Part 91
