Aircraft Compass And Clock Importance
The pilot navigates from one place to another at a certain speed through the air. There is no milestones or road signs or traffic signals along in the air. So the pilot has to keep his aircraft heading in a certain direction for a long time. The aircraft compass detects the earths magnetism and aligns itself regularly. Thus the pilot gets a good sense of direction and can maintain his heading very accurately provided he has a good quality aircraft compass. The speed of the aircraft will tell him how long it will take him to reach his destination. He looks at the clock or his aircraft chronometer and knows his position exactly. Thus in an aircraft both the compass as well as the clock is of high importance. Using his chronometer and compass the pilot can go to any airport in the world provided his aircraft has enough fuel for the aircraft and food and water for the pilot plus passengers. Thus Chronometers and aircraft compass are made to be very accurate.
