Departure charts etc.

Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone knows a website where you can access departure charts and other aeronautical charts such as the different approach and departure routes of airports. I use skyvector sometimes but they don’t have a lot of information for most airports. For KDEN, its amazing! All charts you could wish for (https://skyvector.com/airport/DEN/Denver-International-Airport). Basically, I am looking for a place where I can get this kind of information for most other airports such as EDDF, KLAX, and more. Mainly I am looking for approach and departure charts and IAPs to plan my flights more realistically (like the screenshot below). Let me know what you guys use!

Oh, and anywhere you can copy real life flight plans used by pilots in real life? Cheers :)

You can find just about all US airports here on the following link. Just type in the name of the airport and find it out of the list provided. Once you select the airport, scroll down to the very bottom of the airport information page, and all SIDs, STARs, and IAPs will be listed. As for airports outside of the US, I’m sure there are other websites available but I’m not familiar with them.

Thanks very much!

Well… in IF charts aren’t really important as ATC never instructs you too: Climb via SID or descend VIA star. There aren’t any taxi instructions. There isn’t really that much you can do with charts in this game! U can use them if you want, but I don’t really! I use them on VATSIM while playing XP11!

I usually just look up “KDEN STAR” on google. Flight aware also has charts for some airports as well.

Thanks DiamondGaming4

I mean sure, the ATC doesn’t instruct you but I use them so I have more realistic flight plans you know?

I think it’s still nice to use charts in IF because sometimes approach isn’t active. They’re also encouraged to try and use realistic SIDs and STARs.

Simbrief? but they aren’t up to date so I don’t know! I usually research airport names on google too find charts!

I still use them lol, but it isn’t really as important as if you were playing XP11!

I use a paid service called Navigraph. Has pretty much every chart you could possibly need one place.

Sounds good, I’ll check it out!

One simple reason SID and STARs are important even in IF is because of Terrain avoidance! This is especially true without ATC.

Also once you get the subscription you can update your simbrief AIRAC cycle which is a HUGE help when it comes to flight planning.

Ok sounds good.

ATC might never instruct you to climb or descend via the SID/STAR but some people like to use them for the sake of realism and for planning purposes.

I usually type in the IACO and “Charts” into google and can find most of the charts that I need.

For flight planning I use fpltoif.com which produces a flight plan you can use in Infinite Flight using simbrief. It will also add in suitable SID and STAR if requested. Same website can also convert flight plans from flightaware into suitable for use in Infinite Flight as well.

Happy landings

If anyone is still here, is anyone able to answer this question:

So you know how planes (only a few are able) can use “heavy” in their call sign as soon as they have a MTOW of 136 tonnes (300.000 lbs) or higher. But on long haul flights, fuel is burnt and lets say the weight when arriving at the destination is lower than this, no longer characterized as heavy. The Call-sign wouldn’t change, correct? Like “New Zealand 1 Heavy” would now be “New Zealand 1”?

Any idea for my previous question? Sorry to be annoying lol

No. It would still be considered a “Heavy” airplane
