One friend of ours was flying to an airport about 50 miles away from his home base to gain hours for his IR. One of the ways he kept track of his destination airport was by a steam plant nearby. As he got closer to the steam plant, he knew that he would soon have to veer off toward his destination airport.

This prepared him to use landmarks, as well as flying long distances. Dead reckoning is planning your flight using more detailed calculations.

Variables can include: The types of airspace you will be flying through The types of terrain you will be flying over What kind of checkpoints available to you Checkpoints harken back to pilotage.
