The next step after your first solo flight is to learn how to navigate with the aid of charts, compass, radio beacons etc. First you fly to other aerodromes with your instructor next to you and later you do this during solo flights. Next to building flying experiences, your navigational skills will be refined. Such attention is paid to divert to a destination aerodrome other than the scheduled aerodrome if circumstances necessitated. Also the basic flying blind aspects will be discussed.
