The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) publishes aeronautical charts for each stage of visual (VFR) and instrument (IFR) flight, including training, planning, departure, enroute (low and high altitude), approach, and taxiing. This guide is an excellent reference for novice and experienced pilots alike, as well as for international pilots becoming familiar with U.S. charts. This 14th edition of the Aeronautical Chart User’s Guide is the definitive learning aid, reference document, and introduction to the wealth of information provided on FAA charts and in chart navigation publications.
Produced by the FAA’s Aeronautical Information Services branch, it explains all the symbology for FAA sectional, terminal area, flyway planning, helicopter route, enroute low- and high-altitude, and oceanic route charts, as well as standard terminal arrival routes, standard instrument departures, and instrument approach procedures. Also includes chart legends, airspace classification tables, and is illustrated throughout with full-color graphics.
