Skyvector has new FAA Digital Charts

Recommended Posts

Today's Flying Mag E-News reported on the FAA's new digital charts, highlighted at Sun 'n Fun by ForeFlight last week. VFR sectionals are no longer scanned charts but new digitally created charts; resulting in much crisper, clearer data. The IFR charts are also being upgraded and the best part is that the geo-referencing is much more accurate. You can see the results at skyvector.com.

They look amazing.  I hope that Sky charts pro switches overs as well. 

 

That's what I actually use while flying.

I just made a short flight in the Portland area and out of curiousity brought up BlueSky Scenery"s Moving Map (BSSMM). It certainly appears that this utility is taking advantage of the new data as well; although, I didn't find any verification on their website.

 

Edit: After looking around at other areas this doesn't seem to be the case. Other areas appear to still be scanned paper charts. Sure would be nice to see them implement the digital charts, though.
