Path & Terminator Coding in AIM


Duration: 2 days

Code AIM-DYN Categories: ,


The ARINC 424 Path & Terminator coding course has been designed as an introduction to aeronautical database coding of Instrument Flight procedures. The training course combines both
theory and practical exercises requiring students to complete hands-on coding exercises in order to provide the instructor feedback on the attained skill level of the students. The course is
based on a presentation of the subject theory, illustrated with ‘realistic’ data, tables and aeronautical charts from actual AIP’s that closely reflect the operating environment of the students.
The theory as well as the exercises are illustrated with static database examples using the smartGlobe aeronautical charting system.
