25 March 2021

Can navigators have blind trust in either instrument or visual navigation – of course not, a balance is needed. In this webinar experienced Master and Pilot Capt Ed Verbeek reflects on his experience developing using and teaching navigation techniques. He explores the use of navigation layers and predictive algorithms, looking at ECDIS and PPU. He will also give examples of how the PPU can support both Pilots and ship’s crews and draws on lessons from the aviation industry.
