This book has been written in accordance with the latest Learning Objectives established by EASA and contained within the Aircrew regulation (Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011). This product is therefore fully compliant with the latest version of the EASA ATPL (A) theoretical syllabus for Radio Navigation.
Starting from this basis, we have developed this textbook:
- to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of each topic;
- to facilitate preparation for the relevant ATPL (A) examination;
- to support the application of Radio Navigation in flight operations.
The first chapters of this book are dedicated to the properties of electromagnetic waves, their propagation theory and how they can be used to carry information from a transmitting station to a receiving station.
The subsequent chapters cover the implementation of radio waves in aviation, analysing onboard equipment and transmission systems positioned both on the ground and in space. The analysis of radio navigation systems begins from the most basic devices up to the most advanced and recent technologies, such as the satellite navigation system and area navigation.
