Aviation Tip: Open Your Aeronautical Charts to the Correct Half Every Time

Believe it or not many pilots still use paper charts. Whether as a primary navigation tool or a back up to a moving map, paper charts are still a factor in aviation.

One of the most frustrating things about paper navigation charts is opening the chart and realizing what you’re looking for is on the other side of the chart. Opening and closing these charts in the cockpit is tough enough.

Well, guess what? The FAA figured out a way to publish these charts so you can open them to the correct side the first time and every time. In this short video I’ll show you how to do just that. You won’t believe how many years I’d been flying before someone showed me this trick.
