The purpose of this little books is to show in simple lang-uage how this can best be done and how when sea-going methods fail others can be devised to take their place. The net result is that although the long experience and tradition of sea navigators forms the convenient basis on which air pilotage and navigation is founded, the latter have individuality enough to substantiate a claim for separate treatment." From the author's Preface.
