A seventy hour flight test program was accomplished to determine the suitability and accuracy of a low cost Omega navigation receiver in a general aviation aircraft. An analysis was made of signal availability in two widely separated geographic areas. Comparison was made of the results of these flights with previous work focused on VOR/ DME. Conclusions are drawn from the test experience that indicate developmental system improvement is necessary before a competent fail safe or fail soft area navigation system is offered to general aviation.
