NON-RNAV IFR flights

Hi,

I've recently started my real life IFR training and I am looking forward to fly IFR approaches on VATSIM in small GA aircrafts. I was active on European virtual sky few years ago, where I knew what non-rnav pilot could expect and was was expected from him.

 

As I can't find appropriate GPS unit for GA aircrafts with up-to-date nav database, please advise what can I expect if I would like to fly non-rnav on Canadian virtual sky? Is it ok to conduct flights using standard radio/nav equipment without RNAV capabilities? I would like to navigate using conventional navigation.

 

Thanks,

Peter

Certainly can fly radio / nav equipment.  i.e. VOR to VOR. 

 

The other option would be something like Aivlasoft EFB add-on.  Run on a 2nd or same PC.  You can update that database with Navigraph and it will inject your route into your GPS.
