A mathematical analysis of safety within the airways is presented with special attention to the interrelationship between pilotage errors and navigational errors characteristic of some vlf navigational methods. Error probability convolutions are performed. It is concluded that an error budget of 3.5 nmi for the vlf navigation system will provide adequate safety, but continued experimental work on error distribution and performance of additional error convolutions and safety evaluations are recommended.
