"IFR Round-Table: Jeppesen vs. Aeronav Charts"
Saturday, August 16, 2014 12:00 Pacific Daylight Time

Located at:
San Carlos Flight Center
655 Skyway Rd
Suite 215
San Carlos, CA 94070

Our IFR Roundtable series brings together advanced and novice IFR pilots to share knowledge about particular aspects of instrument flight. Each session focuses on one small IFR procedure or topic area and we spend time talking through the various challenges, definitions, techniques, and safety issues in that topic area.

This session: Jeppesen or AeroNav (formerly NACO) charts. Which should you use? This is an ancient choice for IFR pilots, with many strong feelings.

Together, let's take a neutral, non-evangelistic look at both chart systems, not only with an examination of their approach charts differences, but also taking into consideration the structure of the complete IFR charting subscription package: departures, arrivals, alternate minimums, climb and descent performance charts, en route charts, airport diagrams, and cross-referencing. We also will look at the differences in subscriptions, updating, coverages, and typical costs, and will show some electronic charting options as time permits.
