My name is Grama Alexandru and I will teach you the basics of air navigation.

What is a compass ?What do we use it for ?What is heading and track ?All these questions will be answered in this lecture.

In this lecture you will learn about TRUE, MAGNETIC and COMPAS North and the relation between them.Also you will identify what is Magnetic declination (variation) and Compass deviation.

Using a chart you will be able to identify how to plot a flight plan and how to identify heading/track using magnetic declination and compass deviation.

Basic calculation of time estimates based on expected ground speed of the aircraft.

Practical example using the plotted chart and time estimates. Video edited to reduce the time in-between checkpoints.
