SOUTHWEST VIRTUAL
TRAINING
Hello pilots, My name is Craig Woodward and I am here to teach you the fundamentals of simple navigation. I am going to show you guys not to make mistakes, like missing your approach to the runway you intended to land at. I will also teach you how to fly a SID, (Standard Intrument Departure) a STAR (Standard Arrival), an IAP (Instrument Approach Plate) And a variety of other techniques that I use and I am going to pass them off to you.
I have here some website links for you to use. And I highly recommend them. I am also going to ask you to change your 737 panel to the 777 panel. And for obvious reasons is that 777 panel, the VOR1 and VOR 2 is in the same quadrant. So you don't have to shift your eyes all over the screen. Be sure to back up your 737 panel in case you want to return..Check out the 777 panel first to see if you like it. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. But until I find a suitable 737 panel, 777 remains in my active inventory.
Here is a briief discription of the links I have included.
FSNavigator. It has a pricey tag to it ($30.00) but I am going to use the term, I recommend again. I have included a file for you in case you do not have FSNavigator called Descent Planner. The is self explanitory.  ASALINK.NET is for those that do not have and do not intend to use FSNavigator. You type in the airport where you want to go and it will create a route for you. Clearance Unlimited. This has approach plates for download and terms of aircraft navigation like DME, ILS, VOR, ect. I will be bringing these nomenclatures up now again but it is still an excellant site. American Flyers. Just another good approach plate locator. And now there is AirNav. This is one of my favorites. You want to know where an intersection is, it'll tell ya. But I'm gonna show you first.
