: Steve Miller - "I'm a PILOT, what do I care about satellites?

Today’s world of electronics and complex information systems are creeping into our beloved cockpits. Having a grasp on how some of these systems work and how they relate to pilots is important to safe air travel. This discussion will focus on GPS, how it works, what we as pilots need to know to keep ourselves out of trouble and how to help keep the system working.

Also included, will be an explanation of ADS-B technology, the new fangled (and expensive) 406 MHz transponders and why they’re both important in our aviation futures.
