Congrats to Dave and his Student Tashvir on winning the Navigation Rally today in our Flight School Sling FYA. This involved a two hour flight from Virginia to various landmark waypoints on the map.
In the last pic they are working out the route headings and timing to be able to get to the landmark waypoints in the allotted times. A tracking device accompanies the plane so that a log of their flight can be checked. No turns more than 90 deg can be made so the pilots need to fly accurately to each point on the map without the use of the GPS.
