Description - Mastering GPS Flying by Phil Dixon

With GPS (Global Positioning Systems) now standard equipment in virtually all aircraft, GPS mastery is becoming as necessary to pilots as basic stick and rudder skills. With a unique set of six field-test flight lessons, this guide teaches pilots how to use GPS equipment in all common VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) flight situations, in last-minute changes, as well as in emergencies. It is fully illustrated throughout with charts, maps, photos, and diagrams.
