ARINC 424 Path and Terminator Coding

(SDO-PT)

The ARINC 424 Path & Terminator coding course has been designed as an introduction to 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 and files 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. Teaching methods include Classroom and Practice. The course is administered with a minimum of 4 participants.
