The four course radio range system of the olden days..

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine who is a ham radio operator sent me this video explaining the four course radio range navigation system of the 40s.  It was the first radio navigation system ever,  I thought you guys might beinterested in seeing what flying in the old days was like.

I'm first generation Norwegian American.  You know what they say about Norwegians.  You can always tell a Norwegian, but you can't tell him much.

There was me thinking it was just VORs and NDBs in the early days. Thanks Noel! :cool:

The Milviz Cessna T-50 Bobcat includes a period receiver for an accurate simulation of a four-course radio range system. It's a lot of fun navigating the old-school way. :gaul:
