Many pilots of light aircraft have concentrated on the use of radio navigation aids instead of developing classic navigational skills. The loss of such skills is exacerbated by the availability of GPS.
The object of the group is to encourage the use of map-reading navigational skills as well as accepting the benefits of other aids.
The Group follows usage and developments in GA navigation, notes problems and passes recommended solutions to appropriate authorities and organisations. It also arranges lectures and symposia, makes awards and runs the highly popular Top Nav competition each year.
