I have been sailing for over 20 years now, and flying for about 10 years, so I always had to use charts to create navigation and flight plans. Although you can create a either a marine or flight plan with the computer, during the instruction and license test you have to demonstrate you can do it manually.
Celestial navigation came naturally after that, in theory as a back up plan (in particular in a sailboat), but more for fun and also to give my amateur astronomy hobby a practical application.
