X2059: Air Navigation in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 02, 2016)
How would you find your way in the air when flying an airplane? What instruments pilots use to determine their position in space (often at night or surrounded by clouds) and direction to their destination? We will discuss a few different methods of navigation in the air (from very simple to the most advanced ones) as well as mathematical/physical principles behind them. Finally you will have a chance to test your skills in a couple of real life scenarios.
