Abstract : Updated estimates are derived for VOR navigation system accuracy for the different classes of users and for the combined population when flying the Airways (below 18,000 ft.) and the Jet Routes (above 18,000ft.). The estimates are obtained by combining the results of the following: Measurement and statistical analysis of errors under various conditions of use of 184 operational airborne receiving equipmen:s removed from currently airworthy aircraft; Measurement of the errors of 929 ground stations within the continental limits of the United States; and, An estimate of the results of previous investigations of VOR system accuracy is included.
