Book Description

-- -A TERRORIST CYBER ATTACK is almost CERTAIN to DISABLE ALL CONVENTIONAL AVIONICS, but WILL NOT DETER readers of NAVIGATE YOUR FLYING CARPET
- - Navigate Any Plane
-- -Includes near-miraculous Revolutionary navigation systems now under development & some being implemented are described; some conceptual and some are actually Futuristic.
-- -GPS is NOT the best of the 38 different navigation systems described
-- -ONE NAVIGATION SYSTEM PERMITTED REDUCTION OF IFR landing MINIMUMS FROM 2,500' TO 200'.
-- - A SIMPLE BUT ACCURATE HOMEMADE device can assure drift correction when no other navigation system is available; after a TERRORIST CYBER ATTACK DISABLES all Avionics.
- -One navigation system is so phenomenal that it will save 1 airline 2 million dollars on approaches to 1 airport alone. It saves 1 airline $34 million on fuel just during departures, & more during descents.
For author's recommended reading method see Introduction.
- -Have you ever heard of taking an 11 star fix in seconds?
- - What about Laser Scanner map reading? Or WAAS, RNP, ADS-B, RTW, Super celestial, E-6B, Weems Plotter, ADF, NDB, OMNI, VOR, DME, DCE, TACAN, Grid Navigation, Running Fix, Airplot, Marker Beacon, Low Frequency Range, LOP, GCA, LORAN-A, Inertial Navigation, ILS, ELT, CDI, LSA approach, CAT III, IFR, & of course, the GPS?
-- -Professional Pilots & aviation enthusiasts of ALL ages WILL find Valuable information in NAVIGATE YOUR FLYING CARPET
- -It is ACTUALLY POSSIBLE to maintain quite an accurate ground track by using several little known methods without positive position information (fixes) in any size-type plane.
- -Private Pilots are typically only familiar with 4, & Professional Pilots 8 of the 38 methods;. ATPs only 2 to 4.
- -Few Pilots know of several of the life saving tactics described.
- -Navigation methods that could literally save your life in the event of a Terrorist Cyber Attack (or in flight emergencies) are explained.
- -Can you imagine turning sharply to follow a meandering river downstream without seeing the river, or numerous mountains that are mere feet away; IN CLOUDS while descending 20,000'?
- -Theory, operation, accuracy, & equipment required for each is included.
- -Flying enthusiasts may crave the thought of going up & to fly aerobatics (stunts) but even aerobatic or glider pilots must understand navigation.
- -Although devoted primarily to Pilots, navigation methods from 5,000 years old to 110, 90, 60, & 20 years old are described; PLUS revolutionary state-of-the-art methods.
- -Some exciting disclosures are covered.
- -Imagine being as brilliant and imaginative as Jimmy Doolittle, & being in his shoes as he demonstrated the very first flight relying solely on Instruments; without seeing the ground.
- -Pioneers like the Wright brothers & Jimmy Doolittle made it possible for young WOMEN & men to hop off & NAVIGATE to an airport 3,000 miles away, while CRUISING 1,500 MPH, without ever seeing the ground.
- -Interesting for the very young to octogenarians who have never been up in a plane.
- -Those who never finished high school; to those with a PhD, & multiply rated Pilots will benefit.
- -NAVIGATE YOUR FLYING (or is MAGIC CARPET more appropriate?) CARPET describes an astounding navigation system capable of providing track information to within 700' laterally anyplace on the earth; or literally inches at times.
- -Early ground (ONLY 1 method) & sailing ships (only 2) to the Wright brothers to WWI & WWII, to submarines & spaceflight; but largely planes from 1920 to the SST & SR-71. Modern lightplanes can successfully use most systems.
- -It is possible to operate without positive position information (fixes) in a small lightplane that lacks conventional Avionics (radios; such as OMNI & GPS)?
- -Practicing an obsolete method of navigation increases ones respect for those who led the way for modern Pilots.
- -Watch for free Kindle updates; also edited by experienced Pilot, navigator, author & editor
