Fun fact: I believe the 757 is way below 136t but still considered a heavy because it’s design produces lots of wake turbulence
As for charts, I usually search for Jeppesen charts, some are out of date, but most are good and easy to use
Just be aware, the chart may be outdated if you look at the date
Is that one that I use and the one we recommend the members of virtualBlue to use.
It’s based on MTOW, not load. The MTOW doesn’t change throughout the flight, only the load.
True! Thanks tim
If you want global charts that are up to date, there are only 2 sources that I know of: Aerosoft and Navigraph.
Chart website for Aerosoft and Navigraph.
You could also use Opennav or Aircharts for free charts but they are missing many areas and are very outdated. All other free chart websites only have charts for one country (note that all US chart websites are up to date).
I prefer Navigraph because they use real world Jeppesen charts which are used by a lot of airlines, whereas Aerosoft’s charts are only used by Lufthansa. I also prefer how Navigraph’s charts get information across.
Oh Yeah. I can presume that following it even though can be beneficial. Just like I always follow procedures even in uncontrolled airspace when I fly on VATSIM. :) All about the realism!
@Sebastian_Arias91 Actually no. :) It was for a period, since pilots reported unusual amount of wingtip vortices and wake turbulence, but this was later proven wrong by NTSB… It’s back to a medium unfortunately:(
I highly vouch for the Navigraph. It is an excellent option if he is looking for a global one. They keep the charts up to date and just combine some aspects from the real life Jeppesen chart database to streamline your use but the routes are the same and the information is the same as well from the actual Jeppesen charts(just compiled in areas to save time). I prefer Navigraph more than Aeronav because Navigraph always has the up to date information and has every airport with Jeppesen charts include. Navigraph does require a yearly subscription but you get unlimited use of the charts, and if you want you can download them all and even print them all.
Navigraph is awesome, even though you need to pay for it but still.
