Downloadable IFR Enroute Charts
This notice expired on
Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Effective with the September 25, 2008 airspace cycle, the Federal Aviation Administration will offer digital versions of all Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Enroute Charts as e-commerce digital downloadable files.

All conterminous U.S. and Alaska High and Low Altitude Enroute Charts will be available through the NACO website: - select “Online Ordering” then navigate to “Digital Products” on our e-commerce site. These charts will be packaged just like our paper charts are packaged. For example: ELUS1 and ELUS2 will be packaged together with their associated metadata files into one zip file. Individual chart format will be Portable Document Format (PDF). These PDF files are not geo-referenced. Downloadable Enroute charts will be available 14 days prior to their airspace effective date.  The download price for each zip file will be $1.60.  No subscriptions will be available.

The new Product IDs will be exactly the same as our paper products with one exception; they will be proceeded by a “D” (i.e. DELUS1, DELUS3, DEHUS1, DEHUS3, DELAK1, DEHAK1, DAREA, etc.).

The current associated paper charts will continue to be available as a one-time purchase or via a subscription.  Purchase of a paper enroute chart does not entitle the customer to the corresponding downloadable chart or vice versa.

If you have any questions concerning these products, please contact the FAA/NACO Distribution Team at 1-800-638-8972 (toll free in the U.S.) or 301-436-8301 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm Eastern Time or via e-mail at
