CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Simulate the navigation of aircraft, using instrumentation.


Simulation should include weather data and using various navigation methods:
  • Global positioning system (GPS)
  • Pilotage and dead reckoning
  • Radio/radar or long range (LORAN)
  • Map interpretation/topography
  • Ground-based navigational aids (e.g., Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range [VOR], automatic direction finder [ADF])
  • Magnetic variation
Navigation instrumentation should use or produce the following data or actions:
  • Coordinates
  • Vectors
  • Airspeed
  • Altitude
  • Detection (air or ground)
  • Inertia (through inertial navigation systems)
  • Broadcasts for aircraft location (through beacons—Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Aircraft Control [VORTAC])
