    Do they use Geography or mathematics?

    How do fighter pilots find their way to their airfields after patrolling?

    Pilots use many methods for navigation. Sometimes looking for familiar points is easiest. Other times a map and stopwatch are used. GPS is common today, as well. Many airports also have radio direction-finding beacons to use.
