For many years, flight operations directors, safety managers and accident investigators have been using radar timed-position or flight recorder data to review flight operations, learn about causes of an accident, or improve flight training. However, many flight operations occur where there is no radar coverage or if there are radar data, the coverage, accuracy or time-frequency often leaves much to be desired. In contrast, the Global Positioning System (GPS) today is a worldwide available technology with many military and commercial applications. Most aircraft now have GPS avionics for navigation. The coverage, accuracy and time-frequency of GPS timed-position data is at least an order-of-magnitude better than existing radar systems and is often available for review.
What is the value of GPS timed-position information to the manager or accident investigator? How can this information be used to improve flight safety? The purpose and content of this 5-day, hands-on course is designed to answer these questions.
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for flight operations managers, accident investigators and flight training directors or anyone else who wants an understanding of how to employ GPS timed-position data for review of flight operations, accident investigation or flight training improvement.
