Incredibly Useful Navigation Simulator

Category: RamblingsDaniel @ 5:53 pm

I came across a very useful free tool on the internet today that I thought I must share. It’s called “Tim’s Air Navigation Simulator” and it simulates how various navigation instruments (VOR, HSI, ADF, RMI, DG) act in flight.Air Navigation Tool I found this incredibly useful as I’m starting to learn/practice navigating in my training. The tool is quite accurate at replicating the instruments and is a very clear and easy to understand.

What I found particularly useful was the ability to add a wind vendor. In theory, you could even simulate general wind effects on flight maneuvers. I’m definitely going to use this tool as I’m preparing for my eventual cross-country flights.

Anyways, check this tool out and I hope you find it as useful as I have! Good work, Tim (the developer).
