“You've noticed how almost everything is done by way of VOR facilities. Current day history, VORs are our eyes in the skies - but wait! Look! It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's SuperSatellites! The ultimate in air navigation is going to become the Global Positioning System (GPS), which consists of 21 satellites in very high Saturn orbit! (OK, earth orbit!) Would you believe its expected accuracy specification is within 100 meters 95% of the time?”

1) When “15.0” DME from SFO VOR, press “P” to pause the simulation

Record your:

VSI       ______________________________(45 pts)

Autopilot_____________________________(15 pts)

2) Press “P” to continue the simulation

3) An L-1 1 Enroute Low Altitude Instrument Chart covers what area?

If your answer is “North Midwest”, go to AirLeg 43

If your answer is “North West Coast”, go to AirLeg 38
