Global Navigation for Pilots: International Flight Techniques and Procedures (Paperback)
Flight accomplished over longer distances and across international borders takes special knowledge; this book is for pilots who want to know more about both the planning and execution of international flights, from the basic knowledge of air navigation expected of an instrument-rated private pilot, and onward. This Third Edition of Global Navigation for Pilots: International Flight Techniques and Procedures is written and updated by Dale DeRemer, Ph.D. and Gary Ullrich, and serves as the continuation of what has been the definitive textbook on the subject since 1993.
This book covers long-range and trans-oceanic navigation techniques and procedures, and international flight planning, systems, and regulations. Topics include: GPS, RVSM airspace, featureless terrain navigation, celestial concepts important to pilots, ICAO aircraft registry information, and how to get your flight department ready to fly internationally. Study questions or classroom exercises included with most chapters. Fully illustrated in color, and includes glossary and index.
