DEAD
Reckoning

* DID YOU KNOW THAT IT'S POSSIBLE to fly from one place to another without using a GPS, referring to ground-based radio navigation aids, or relying on vectors from air traffic control? All it requires is a sectional chart,a pencil, and a compass. An E6B flight computer makes it easier, as does a plotter, but even those aren't required. It may not be as easy or seem as useful, but using dead reckoning and pilotage as a backup to your GPS means never having to say "I'm lost" if the battries die.
