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.
