Abstract:

The report describes the results of a conference that was held to establish guidelines for improving the training of pilots and navigators in basic map-reading skills. A review of present training syllabi indicated that pilots presently acquire map-reading skills through on-the-job experience because very little formal training is devoted to it. It was concluded that the main aspect of map reading that requires more effective training is visual referencing, that is, the pilots ability to relate the topographic features of the chart to their counterparts in the real world.
