Looking for a good source for Aeronautical Charts

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recommendations? Enroute, VFR/IFR, Approach plates, etc. I like to plan my flights with a VFR chart but it isn't necessary. Really miss those GNC charts I used in the USAF years ago.Any help appreciated

Hi Dave,Well, if you live near a military airfield, you could go out to operations and ask them if you can have their old pubs (DOD FLIP)when they throw them away (send them to the recycle facility). Good idea to call ahead the first time and talk to the ops officer. Next changeover is this coming Thursday (July 10th). BTW, I live and do my sim flying in the US.If you are not near a military field, try the FBO at the local airfield. Usually a good source.If you are looking for online stuff, try thishttp://www.geocities.com/bobandrepont/iap.htmSome of this is out of date, clearance unlimited now charges for stuff, but it is a source. HTH,Paul

I agree, try a military base, it's where I get a full complete library of worldwide charts.Lobaeux

HI Markus,The Tables you can import into MS Excel.The documents are just .pdf and can be read in Adobe Acrobat.AFAIK, that's the only software you'll need.-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x

HI Scott,Yes, probably many more places. But even Jeppesen, I'm fairly certain, uses DAFIF as their source.DAFIF is straight from the horses mouth, as it were.-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x

There should be some software available to read this data. I've used Excel, as recommended. Though I'm sure I could figure out the column alignment with trial and error, there's got to be an easier way. Anybody has any idea of available readers for this data?Regards,Dave Vega
