Book, by J.A. Toledano Manchego and G. Fernández Arnedo, that stands out for not being one more of those books that talk about the basic principles of air navigation and/or the advances obtained by the application of new technologies, but an entertaining and enriching work that shows the matter in a very practical way.
This third edition, revised and enlarged, stands out for compiling in its totality the knowledge of the new European Normative.
It is enormously useful as a training tool for future pilots as well as for those professionals who want to have a personal or professional consultation tool.
A large number of books have collected the basic principles of air navigation and the advances obtained through the application of new technologies. However, there was a lack of a work in Spanish that compiled the knowledge of the new European regulations in the most practical way possible.
This book provides a novel and original vision of modern navigation instruments in a theory essential for understanding. It also establishes the necessary procedures to support the required practice in the flight of aircraft. The term "navigation" has traditionally referred to the science that studies the conduction of ships between certain points. The basic techniques used were applied to the aircraft from the beginning of the aeroestación, existing few professions in which a tool of work is so important. The sextant, the odometer, the southern Chinese indicator, the compass, radioelectric emissions and navigation based on satellite constellations have revolutionized the working methods of pilots and navigators.
This third edition, revised and extended, is updated in accordance with European Standards.
The graphs, maps, schemes and tables inside make this book a valuable learning material. Its authors, J.A. Toledano Manchego and G. Fernández Arnedo, have attempted with this work to offer an effective training tool for future pilots and an extraordinary consultation tool for professionals.
