World Aeronautical Charts
Flying over a new region on your next flight — perhaps the Caribbean or the Canadian border of Michigan? Make sure you have the most up-to-date World Aeronautical Charts for that land area.
With one of these charts in your possession you can get a quick feel for high-altitude airspace and traffic patterns. You will have topographical data, major land features, major roads and railroads as well as radio aids and runway data.
But since these charts don't show D and E class airspace and other low altitude details, they are not meant to replace Sectional charts or even Terminal Area charts, which are more detailed for lower, slower aircraft.
The world's your oyster, but if you're a pilot here's a pearl of wisdom: make sure you have the right aeronautical charts.
