The US Navy needed an effective way to teach pilots,
aeronautical navigation concepts and techniques, so their approach was to create
useful data visualizations, and the results was this beautifully illustrated
This pilot training manual for the US Navy (and Marine Corps) in WWII.
Flight through Instruments, issued by the
aviation training division, office of the Chief of Naval operations. An absolute must see
to better understand aeronautical navigation concepts and techniques, the way
our WWII pilots did.
I know very few books that look half this good nowadays.
Since I started flying I have yet to see another vintage manual with such clear,
concise, and easy to understand graphics. A picture is worth a thousand words,
and this book is worth a million.
