I have a few students coming in tomorrow, and I am going to be
teaching them about VOR’s and ADF’s and tracking/orientation.
Anyone have any cool websites that could supplement my lesson on them?

I use some software I bought,,,, but if you are looking for an online
resource, this is a good one….. http://www.visi.com/~mim/nav/

Joe Campbell’s site at:
http://www.campbells.org/Airplanes/VOR/vor.html is interesting. It
gives a good perspective for us types that like the full background.

From another source I found a link to a commercially developed instrument
flight simulator software that was once sold for around 99 ($173 at the
current exchange rate).
However for reasons connected to the tragedies of 9/11 the company have
decided to release the full Proflight software as a free download.
The link to download it is: http://airlines.afriqonline.com/download.htm
The navigational database is that of the UK, but if you go to
http://www.ais.org.uk/ you will be able to register (for free) to the United
Kingdom Aeronautical Services website and download the AIP in pdf format.
(The AIP is our equivalant to NOS charts etc).
From what I’ve seen, the software seems, borrowing from Delboy’s words,
“cosher”. (For those who don’t know Delboy is a character from the famous
Only Fools and Horses TV series in the UK).
