Navigation Systems

Go back to the main Instrument Flight Rules Page.

This category provides the basic radio principles applicable to navigation equipment, as well as an operational knowledge of how to use these systems in instrument flight. This information provides the framework for all instrument procedures, including standard instrument departure procedures (SIDS), departure procedures (DPs), holding patterns, and approaches, because each of these maneuvers consists mainly of accurate attitude instrument flying and accurate tracking using navigation systems.
