Celestial Navigation 101: A Conversation with Gary LaPook

Considered by many within and outside of the Earhart community as the foremost authority on celestial navigation in the world, Gary LaPook has been interested in Amelia Earhart since the 90's; studying the flight at length from multiple facets using multiple skill sets.


Recorded live on location in Gary's living room in Moorpark, California we spoke at length about the world flight, Amelia Earhart's impact and legacy, burden of proof and the inner workings of celestial navigation. We got into the mind of navigator Fred Noonan and the monumental responsibility that he carried during one of the most incredible flights in aviation history. Get out your paper and pencils; celestial navigation 101 is now in session!
