VOR, ADF & RMI
This book is the offspring of Martin Cass's The VOR and ADF, first published in 1977 and which ran to three editions. Its aim is to introduce the theory required to operate and use the VOR (Very High Frequency Omni Directional Radio Range), ADF (Automatic Direction Finding) and RMI (Radio Magnetic Indicator) for their operational role in the air. There is also a chapter on DME (Distance Measuring Equipment).
The instrument descents into Guernsey and Jersey are included to give that extra depth of understanding to the basic exercises, and as an introduction to the more advanced techniques.
The text has been rewritten to make it compliant with the latest practices and regulations. It also includes new and improved diagrams and illustrations.
This book has been written to provide a complete basis for the understanding and use of the two radio aids VOR and ADF as well as the Magnetic Radio Indicator. It is the ideal manual to complement practical training and instruction in instrumental navigation.
It is important to remember that, in order to make full use of instrumental navigation systems, it is necessary to have an instrument rating. This is why this book becomes an essential tool for the pilot's preparation and training to pass one of the most demanding flight tests in the world, the Instrument Rating.
First published in 1977, it was received with great success. Today the text has been rewritten to include and comply with the latest practices and regulations.
One of the best-selling books on Piloting and Flight Instruction.
Martin Cass started Flying in 1962 at Shoreham Airport, Sussex and became a flying instructor at Shoreham in 1964.
In 1978 he joined British Island Airways as first officer on Dart Herald and subsequently crewed the BAC 1-11 and McDonnell Douglas MD-83. After the sad and sudden demise of BIA in 1990, Martin went back on the BAC 1-11 with London European, Luton. Finally, having flown a total of thirteen thousands hours, he completed four more happy years on the noisy but nice 1-11, with British World Airlines at Stansted and Copenhagen.
