An aviation navigational system and method for predicting glide range for an aircraft for specific airports and other potential emergency landing locations in proximity to the aircraft. Information is presented to the pilot by complementing a conventional moving map display with symbols centered on each landing location. GPS altitude, airport elevation, and the aircraft's glide ratio are factored into an equation to determine glide range for each airport within proximity to the aircraft. A circular symbol representing the glide range boundary is displaye...
We claim: 1. An electronic aviation flight navigation system comprising: a computer having an electronic display for use onboard an aircraft, said computer enabled with moving map GPS for displaying navigational positioning information; means for displaying a plurality of potential landing locations relative to said aircraft on a moving map display; means for calculating glide ranges for the aircraft based on an aircraft's glide ratio and an altitude differential between said aircraft and each of said plurality of potential landing locations; means for...
