Where Can I Reliably Get SID/STAR/IAP Charts?

Recommended Posts

I want to know which STAR to use into Mumbai for KIAD-VABB in the Air India 777-200LR. I do not know the STARs because I have never even flown to Mumbai yet.

 

How do real pilots get charts for their SIDs and STARs? Where do you simmers get charts? Also, I'm looking for something that is free or inexpensive and that I can rely on.

If you need charts for airports outside the US you often have to go with a commercial source as the data is not always available to the public for free.

 

Navigraph have just launched their cloud charts. Pretty costly though at 60 euros a year.

Charts outside the us are harder to find. There won't be a one stop reliable place for all charts. You'll just have to google vabb charts. Often the local vatsim or ivao division will have them perhaps semi up to date. Navigraph charts are an option. They just started a subscription service.

Navigraph desktop and cloud have a year subscription to worldwide charts and en-route charts for 48 euro.

skyvector for the US, and for the other airports I fly to I either have them from the addon manual, or I search for them on Google via "ICAO code + approach chart" or something like that, but that of course isn't reliable at all, and it's not always easy to find what you want this way.

www.aircharts.org have a charts for quite a few (though far from all) places in the world.

 

As for the OP's second question: real world pilots buy their charts from a commericial company (e.g. Jeppesen, Lufthansa) or get them from national governments (all Eurocontrol countries have their charts online for free).

I've never flown to VABB, but charts.aero has had every chart I've ever needed. That said, you can purchase individual Navigraph airport chart collections for pretty cheap.

 

Airline pilots in real life usually have a Jeppesen subscription, but those cost thousands of dollars.
