This webinar will look at the impacts of switching from a Magnetic North to a True North reference for navigation in aviation. The webinar will begin with a presentation from NAV Canada, which has been leading industry efforts to move away from Magnetic North to True North.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion to try to answer the following questions:
· Why do we still navigate by reference to Magnetic North in aviation?
· Is the aviation world ready to switch to True North?
· How could True North be implemented in a harmonized way across ICAO Member States?
