Superhero GPS

How do Superheroes that fly find their way to other countries without getting lost?

I think I’m lost. I have no idea where I’m going.

Superheroes with the power of flight must also have some sort of internal navigation system akin to that of bees or birds. Being able to fly would be useless without it. One flight in an aircraft over the wide expanse of ocean betrays how easy it is to get lost among the clouds. Even knowing the general direction of a city miles away, and flying in a straight line, if the Superhero is off by even a fraction of a radian they would end up at a point miles away from the intended destination. Frequent course correction would be necessary. Over the ocean this would be nearly impossible unless guided by the Sun, stars, or the Earth’s magnetic field.
