I usually just Google the AIP of the country of the airport, and look up the charts for the country.
The advantage is that they are the official charts, and they are updated monthly, so there’s no issues of the chart not showing a runway because it’s a Jeppesen chart from 2006.
Aside, I find I better to use the email when available, only because I find it easier to navigate. The AIP is usually a roughly 200page PDF, whereas the email is an easily navigateable webpage.
To get the airport diagram for Kuala Lumpur International (WMKK):
This will be more less the same for any airport anywhere in the world except for the US. I haven’t figured out how to use their weird eAIPs yet
- Open up the official Malaysia AIP
You’re concerned with Part 3: Aerodromes.
- Open up
AD 2 Aerodromes in the drawer on the left of the page.
That should present a list of airports below what you just clicked listing the airport’s ICAO and name.
Find your airport. In our case we looking for
WMKK KL INTERNATIONAL / SEPANG
Click on it and you will see a new sublist pop up below the airport’s name you just clicked. In that list locate and click on
AD 2.24 WMKK CHARTS RELATED TO AN AERODROME. This number might differ from airport to airport, but the label.should stay somewhat consistent.
Now on the left you will see a list of all the charts for the airport. We are looking for the airport diagram, so find and open the
AERODROME / HELIPORT CHART - ICAO, and just like that you got access to the latest official airport diagram for the airport.
You’re welcome. Feel free to message me if you have any questions ;)
