Good news from Navigraph

As I mainly fly European airlines such as from the Lufthansa group (Lufthansa, Eurowings, Swiss, Austria), this is bad news for me as all those airlines use the LIDO charts. It seem that Navigraph intends to focus now on the north american market by using Jeppesen.

Might be time to switch to NavDataPro Charts then, which uses LIDO. Hope there will be a refund from Navigraph in case that there are many days of subscription left.

Thanks for the HU Richard

The new charts look like LIDO a big change from how they use to look. I like the speed restrictions, even easier to see than LIDO

Well I see in their posting that both Munich and Geneva charts are included as well as Hong Kong, so it is not just USA.

You are correct. European airports will still be covered. 

What I think he meant was that if you want to simulate European ops, it gets less realistic, as a lot of European carriers use Lido (Lufthansa Group, IAG, Air France/KLM) in stead of Jeppesen.

I think Jeppesen has a greater coverage world wide and mostly in North America, but also in places like Norway I believe (because of Wideroe). Which is a plus. The moving map etc. is also a plus for me.

I will miss the Lido charts however. I'm used to them and like the overall look and feel of them (like a 3 year old I like colors). But then again, the new Jeppesen charts will be more like Lido charts in that aspect.

For now I'll stick with Navigraph.

I use navigraph and preferred the look over Jeppeson charts but have a look at the training link that Richard posted.

I've been through the presentation showing all the changes and they are very close to LIDO now. That plus the moving map means I am happy to stay with Navigraph.
