How shipping works on FAA charts:
- One Time Next Edition: Ships when the next edition becomes available. Always arrives before the edition date, usually about one week before.
- One Time Current Edition: Ships immediately
- Standing Order/Subscription: Ships when the next edition becomes available. Always arrives before the edition date, usually about one week before. If you want to make standing order, you must contact us by email or phone.
- There is a period of approx. 3 weeks before a new edition is released that we refer to as "The Donut Hole". During this period the new editions are being printed and are thus unavailable to ship. In these cases, select Next Edition unless you really need a chart immediately.
VFR Sectional and TAC Charts update according to the DOLE
To determine whether you have the most current edition chart or to find out when the next edition will be effective, see the DOLE (PDF).
Sectional Aeronautical Charts are the primary navigational reference medium used by the VFR pilot community. The 1:500,000 scale Sectional Aeronautical Chart Series is designed for visual navigation of slow to medium speed aircraft. The topographic information featured consists of the relief and a judicious selection of visual checkpoints used for flight under visual flight rules. The checkpoints include populated places, drainage patterns, roads, railroads, and other distinctive landmarks. The aeronautical information on Sectional Charts includes visual and radio aids to navigation, airports, controlled airspace, restricted areas, obstructions, and related data. These charts are updated every six months, most Alaska Charts annually.
