Hi! I need accurate flight charts for my 747 FMC. I find Jeppesen chart in the www but thy are to old. I have Navigraph and are therefore update in the airac system. The SID and STAR in old charts do not match new airac as 1708, for exemplar. My question is where I can find accurate charts for my hobby. It does not matter if it costs money.

Want the very latest charts?

A worldwide year subscription to that will cost > $1000 though. Otherwise it's navigraph charts or aerosoft's version.

If you already have a Navigraph FMS data subscription, they also provide charts with their Ultimate subscription. They have a desktop app, a web-based site you can access in a browser and iPad and Android apps.

The charts used to be updated quarterly but now most airfields are updated monthly along with each AIRAC cycle.

The only downside is that they are switching from Lido to Jepps - ugh! Bring back the Aerads, I say.

Aerosoft also have a chart product.

I use Navigraph at 74,90 Euro a year for ALL charts, and Navagation Data Base for all popular airplane software developers. They are changing to Jeppesen as their chart provider and you can use their Jeppesen charts at this address beta.charts.navigraph.com

 

Navigraph are the PMDG of simulator charts and navigation data providers.

If your flying is mainly in North America check out Foreflight. It runs on an Ipad and is used in the real world for an Electronic flight bag.

SkyVector! FAA charts for free. If you have an ipad, make a shortcut on your homescreen. 

Would be nice to have Jeppesen, but that's a bit much for me.

They are accurate, yes. The decision is ultimately yours. But they are used by professionals, and Jeppesen have greater coverage than LIDO. So i would recommend a Navigraph subscription for your charting and navigation database solutions if you have the money and will use the product/s frequently. If you don't anticipate frequent usage, then there are plenty of alternative solutions, but I personally find Navigraph an exceptional product.

 

PS - I do not work for Navigraph. I am a paying customer of theirs.

Navigraph charts are the same as the real-world charts that are published by Lido/Lufthansa Systems. The only difference is the some of the airline specific content (e.g. EOSIDs) and the fact that the charting cycle differs.  Navigraph does not update the Lido charts on a 28 day cycle.  I believe the Navigraph updates on about a 90 day cycle, so some charts may be out of date for few weeks. The vast majority will be current.

I use Navigraph for all flying outside the U.S., Canada, and Latin America.

Skyvector has all instrument charts for US airports, but not for Europe or Asia.

Navigraph would probably be your best solution. They are moving from LIDO (Lufthansa) charts to Jeppesen. The LIDO charts are better quality, but only updated every few months. The new Jeppesen charts will be updated monthly, and will be the very same ones that are used by real world pilots, (who pay thousands of dollars per year for subscriptions).

The navigraph ultimate subscription is about $75 per year. (Or the equivalent in your local currency) That includes charts and unlimited FMS data. It's not inexpensive, but on the other hand, it gives the very same Jeppesen charts that a real pilot would have to pay $5,000 per year for (or more.)

Each Navigraph chart is marked "For flight simulation use only". The Navigraph charts don't include EVERY airport in the world, but do have almost all airports that are big enough to have some level of airline service.

For US airports there are many web sites that provide free charts - Skyvector, Airnav, even the FAA itself.

Many European countries provide free access to approach and enroute charts. For example, for the U.K. the web site is:
