Real-World Paper Charts?

Unregistered User Does anyone use real-world made-from-tress paper charts? Which ones do you find most helpful?

Hi Rev45:

I use paper charts. Which ones are the best depends on what you intend to do with them. (too stiff for the bathroom).
There are Low Altitude Enroute and High Altitude Enroute charts. The USA has 12 HI charts alone.

The problem is that they come out in the real world every 55 days or so, and they are expensive.

I only have them because my son works at Lockheed Aircraft...and he gets the old ones for FREE.

If there are any airports around where you live you might check with them to see what they do with their old charts. Two month old ones work fine for FLIGHTSIM.

NAVAGRAPH.com has charts...both Enroute and Airport if you what to check them out. They cost $$$.

This LINK has some free Enroute charts for Europe:

Any questions...just let me know.

The site for electronic charts is:

What I do most of the time is run two monitors. One with FS on it, and the other with a moving map on it...like FSNav or FSC (Flight Sim Commander).

I have both, I actually prefer FSC8 once I got used to it. It works with both FS9 and FSX.

If your video card has two outputs for monitors then it is pretty easy to set this up. You can also "undock" your windows components...like radio stack...and move it to the second monitor etc.

Unregistered User Thanks, JJ. I've got a line on some low alt charts when they expire next month, and bought a current low alt for the KMSP area, just to try it out. But FS Nav or similar might be a better plan in the long run.
